William “Bill” Maston Letson , 76, of Franklin, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday April 5th, 2020.
He was preceded in death by his parents Henry and June Letson.

Bill was born in Daytona Beach and raised in West Palm Beach Florida. But he developed a love for Franklin after his father and mother brought him here on vacation. In 1964 he married Charlotte Jones and they spent their honeymoon in Franklin; eventually, he and Charlotte made Franklin their home. It was here that he and Charlotte raised their four daughters, who Bill adored and spent his life caring and providing for them.

As a young man, Bill joined the US Army where he became a member of 101st Airborne. Bill worked a number of jobs before becoming an estate manager for a property in Highlands, NC where he spent the last 38 years.

He was a dedicated member of Cartoogechaye Baptist Church where he took part in many of the church’s special events; he often worked behind the scenes, building props and scenes. He had a LOVE for the Lord and was unashamed to worship and praise him.

Bill was a caring, compassionate and loving man who easily made new friends. He passed away as a man who was deeply loved by his family and friends and will forever be missed.

He is survived by the love of his life and best friend, his wife of 55 years, Charlotte. His four daughters, “The Letson Sisters”, Cindy Letson of Murfreesboro, TN, Debbi Waldroop (Brian), Josie Letson and Summer Southard (Brian), all of Franklin, NC; eight grandchildren, Ethan Letson, Nicole Ledford (Jacob), Danielle Talley (Jordan), Taylor Wilson (Levi), Jordan Rogers, Dylan Southard, Parker Southard, and Judd Southard; five great grandchildren, Emmett Ledford, Rowan Ledford, Wilder Ledford and twins Brodee and Hadlee Wilson; two sisters, Sally Cain of West Palm Beach FL and Sue Black of Orlando FL and several nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 3:00 pm, Saturday, July 11th at Cartoogechaye Baptist Church. (Masks and gloves are encouraged and will be provided upon request) Rev. Brian Southard and Pastor Billy Rogers will officiate. Military Rites will be conducted by the North Carolina Honor Guard.

The family will receive friends from 1-2:30 pm, prior to the service at the church.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Appalachian Animal Rescue, PO Box 81, Franklin, NC 28744.

Macon Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

I had a very special friendship with Bill when I owned Faith Mechanical Service that continued even after I sold the business. He always invited me to go fishing with him one day. Rest In Peace dear friend.
