William “Bill” Tome Shireman was born on July 17, 1937, and passed away on Sunday, July 17, 2022 after 85 years on this Earth.

Our father was first and foremost a proclaimed follower of Jesus Christ.

He loved many styles of music including performing in the Music City Barbershop chorus for over 30 years.
