William E. Ready, Sr., 1933-2019.
Many of you knew Bill Ready, Sr. as an irascible, outspoken, sometimes rough-edged, always humorous character with an unmatched collection of idiosyncrasies. Those of us who dealt with him more closely discovered that beneath his bluff exterior was a generous heart that embraced and touched many, particularly the less fortunate.
During the Civil Rights Era, Bill stood for right, and helped activists plan and accomplish their work for freedom. He stood up to the Klan. He represented those whom no one else would. Here is a Meridian Star article from a couple of years ago that touches on his history.
Bills trademark bolo tie no doubt will be retired. There’s no one at the bar worthy to wear it, anyway. We’ll miss him.
