Life Story 

Willie Lee Spruance, 59, of Houston, Delaware, passed away suddenly in his sleep on March 7, 2023. Willie was born on July 31, 1963, in Lewes, Delaware to Harry Lee Turner and Nettie B. Harris. After school he went on to become a valued team member as a construction worker at Teal Construction for many years until he obtained an injury that exempted him from doing so.


Willie enjoyed spending time with his family, cooking, cleaning, writing, dancing, talking trash, and being a great listener and companion for others.  He had a huge heart and would give anyone the shirt off of his back at any given time. He lived freely and showed much love to others. In addition to being a kind and thoughtful soul he could be stubborn and a bit much at times too, but those are just added qualities that encompassed the man that we all grew to love. He will be missed dearly but will continue to live on in our thoughts, memories, and our hearts.


Willie was preceded in death by his father, Harry L. Turner; mother, Nettie B. Harris; brothers, James Bynum, Richard Spruance, and Ray Spruance; and once daughter, Willita Spruance.


Willie is survived by his children, Lonnie King, Willie Benson, Latoya Wright, Dah’Mar Dorsey, Izaha Spruance, Rontise Dorsey, and Travon Dorsey; grandchildren, Decartier, Destiny, Christian Dorsey, Kayla, William, Morgan, Giselle, and London Benson; siblings, Edward Spruance, Harry Turner, Mark Spruance, Frank Corsey, Nathan Spruance, Lorna Spruance, Gwendolyn Walston, Goldie Spruance, and Jackie Jordan; and many beloved aunts, uncles nieces, and nephews.


We will always love and miss you; until we meet again, watch over us.


Lovingly Submitted,

The Family
