William "Bill" Oscar Fairley , age 88, of Cave Springs, died Friday, November 13th, 2020. Bill was born January 7, 1932 in Springdale, Arkansas to Drury and Francis Fairley. Bill is preceded in death by his parents, four brothers and two sisters. Bill is survived by his wife, of 69 years, Jean Fairley; three children, Rick Fairley and wife Nancy of La Center, WA., Mike Fairley and wife Wendy of Dallas, TX., Francie Catron and husband Mike of Gentry, AR; and seven grandchildren; sisters, Rosa Lea Davis and husband George of Springdale, Nancy Wirz and husband Dennis of Farmington; and brother, Wayne Fairley of Fayetteville.

Bill earned many titles - “Honey”, as Jean referred to him, Grandpa or Grumps (ha), brother, Uncle Bill, Bill and Jean to many friends and neighbors. He served in the Navy. His knowledge and love of nature was mind blowing. He was the “phone a friend” for anything regarding plants, hummingbirds, animals, just about everything under the sun. He was an encyclopedia in itself. He was always reading and learning. He was a perfectionist with a magazine picture perfect garden or yard. No place in NWA reveled in beauty like his place for 44 years. He would get up everyday eat breakfast and work digging, planting, and trimming. Family vacations he would anxiously plan camping in the mountains of Northern California to Canada or Worlds Fair in Knoxville, TN and much in between. His favorite was here local in Jasper, AR.
At the end of Bill's life journey, his health failing and physical body deteriorating , he captured the hearts of his caregivers at Siloam Springs Rehab as they claimed him and mom as their own.
Whether sitting on the porch or eating a meal in his sunlit dining room, and hearing stories of his life-he will be greatly missed.

A private memorial service will be scheduled at later date.
