COSBY-Funeral services will be held at 7:00 p.m. tonight in the chapel of Manes Funeral Home for Cocke County political leader and World War II veteran Bill Williamson.

Williamson died suddenly at his Cosby home Sunday at the age of 87. He was currently serving as one of two CLB members from Cosby's Fifth District, having first been elected to the position in 1990 as a Justice of the Peace.

During his tenure, Williamson served the group as chairman for two terms. At the time of his death, he chaired the Finance Committee and was known for his careful scrutiny regarding the spending of the county's money.
