The Ellis County Press
WILMER - A Longtime respected citizen, former Mayor and council member passed away suddenly last Thursday, June 10.
Billy Wic-kliffe, part of the old tr-ain in Wil-mer, was kn-own for his politics as much as he was his cheerful smile.
Seventy-seven year old Wickliffe served the city of Wilmer from 1960-2005, including three separate terms as mayor.
"He was a friend of the family and seeing him at lunch with his mischievous smile and laughter will surely be missed," said Publisher of The Ellis County Press Charles D. Hatfield Jr.
Wickliffe was buried Monday, June 14 at Red Oak Cemetery.
