On June 16, 1993, Willie E. Hollis Jr. and Kimberly Buckner received a blessing from God by way of a son, Willie E. Hollis III "Tre".
He was educated in the Bibb County School system and graduated from Central High School in 2011. After completing high school Willie worked on several jobs but found his true passion and calling the moment he entered the boxing ring.
Some would say to know Willie was to love him, but in reality, to meet Willie was to love him. Some would say that he never met a stranger. Willie was a very spiritually conscience person and stayed in tune with himself. He was a very selfless soul.
Willie leaves to cherish his memory his mother, Kimberly Buckner; his father Willie Hollis Jr.; three siblings: Victor Buckner, Sidney Clemons, and Charrice Clemons and a host of other relatives and friends.
