“Today a father, husband, son, brother and friend to so many left our family to be with the greatest angels, of which he will now be one.
The only thing that can stop tears at a moment like this is remembering Wil’s smile which was as wide as Arizona, especially when it came to his five children.
His gregarious approach to life, business, our family and his faith enriched all who were fortunate to shake his hand.
I don’t think I ever met someone who loved people more. Despite his success in the business and philanthropic arenas I think the moments I witnessed with his children, helping a person on the side of the road or even applying to be a high school football coach were the ones that gave him the most joy.
It is no secret Wil suffered from depression, and struggled with it. He tried mightily for us, for himself and for all to overcome it. Today it finally took him, as it takes way too many.
Few would want to say more about the person we will remember forever than our family, but we hope our privacy can be respected to grieve, and to plan a tribute that has come far too early.”
Please pray for the family of Wil Cardon.
