Family and friends gathered at the turf club in Twin Falls to honor Wills Sunday afternoon.

He remained a pilot throughout most of his life.

In 1946 he started Wills Motor Company in Twin Falls.

“People that know Hank, know him as a great person. Sort of one of these types that never met a person he didn’t like and well-loved by a lot of people in the community,” said Greg Wills, Hank’s son.

Wills played an active role in the community throughout his life.

Three generations of Wills have owned and operated the car dealership.
