May 7, 1942 - December 25, 2020
Billy “Bill” Bruce Ousley, 78, died unexpectedly on Christmas Day, 2020. He was blessed to celebrate Jesus' birthday in heaven. He was born May 7, 1942 in Springfield, Tennessee to the late Rev. Bruce and Charlotte Ousley. He graduated from Springfield High School, completed undergraduate studies at Middle Tennessee State University, and earned his Doctorate of Pharmacy from University of Tennessee College of Pharmacy in Memphis. Bill worked for The Upjohn Company for 38 years, retiring from Pfizer in 2004. Following retirement, he worked 12 years as a part-time pharmacist for Accredo. Bill met his wife Dorothy (Dot) Hays Ousley at church, and they were married for 54 years. He was an avid sports fan whose favorite team was the Memphis Tigers. He loved westerns, reading, and all things music. Bill was a charter member of Trinity Baptist Church in Cordova, TN. He loved singing in the choir, serving as a deacon, and working tirelessly at Alpine Village. He leaves a legacy of Christian stewardship and service. Bill had a laid-back, easy-going personality, and was loved by so many. We know that until we can sit together again with a cup of coffee and a piece of cake or pie, he will anchor the bass section in the heavenly choir. Bill is survived by his wife Dorothy (Dot) Ousley of Collierville, TN, son Rob (Stephanie) Ousley of Jonesboro, AR, daughter Claire (Greg) Foster of Germantown, TN. He is also survived by four grandchildren, Mallory Ousley, Stephen Ousley, Brittany Foster, and David Foster. Visitation will be held at Trinity Baptist Church in Cordova, TN on Saturday, January 2, 2021 at 1:00 pm, followed by a memorial service at 2:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any memorials be sent to Trinity Baptist Church, 8899 Trinity Road, Cordova, TN 38018.
