In 1989 William met Catherine Taylor now Payne. They later married and through their union raised 4 children. Prior to their union he also fathered 2 children. Being a man of God and the head of his family, Bill and Catherine relo- cated from Jacksonville, FL to South Florida where they became part of the Hopewell Family. As a service to God and this church he served faithfully on the Usher Board, Male Choir, Prison Ministry and was the chair person of the New Life Ministry, now called the Substance Abuse Ministry. Bill was passionate about helping others find the road to recovery and rehabilitation. In the later part of his life, he developed a passion and was an advocate for cultivating a clean diet and healthy lifestyle. Bill has now become a guardian angel of his children & grandchildren: William Coleman (Mikiyah), LaTasha Campbell (William, John, Jalyssa & Talisha),Khasiem Thomasson (Khasiem Jr., Hassan & London), Montez Thomasson, Danielle Payne (Daniel) & Rashaad Payne (Jamen).
