Obituary - Dr. Bill Chapman



Dr. Bill Chapman, husband and biggest fan of walking horse owner and exhibitor Jannie Chapman, passed away Feb. 24. Jannie was grateful to be by his side, holding the hand of the love of her life, partner and protector as he peacefully left this world to be with his Lord and savior. 

Bill loved deeply and placed Jannie on a pedestal that she says everyone should have the honoring of enjoying. 

“I love you forever,” Jannie said following his passing.

Bill will be honored with a memorial service on Thursday, Feb. 28 at The Rock Family Worship Center. Visitation is from 11 a.m. to noon with the service directly to follow. 

Bill will be laid to rest Friday, March 1 in Troy, Alabama. Visitation will be at the Green Hills Funeral Home from 1 to 2 p.m. with the funeral directly to follow. 

Bill spent his life helping others and he wanted to continue to do so after he left this Earth. With that in mind, and in lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to support the Champions Rooms, which ministers to children with autism and other special needs.

To make a donation, text “ROCKHSV” to 77977 and choose the “Champion’s Room Fund.” 

“Thank you for helping us keep his legacy alive with this wonderful ministry,” Jannie said.
