Williams Earl Court, 72, of Kountze, Texas entered his eternal heavenly home Friday, November 19, 2021. He was born to Pete and Lounell Courts February 12, 1949 and was raised in Saratoga, Texas.

Shortly after graduating high school, Will enlisted in the United States Army and proudly served his country in Vietnam. Upon returning to the states, he met the love of his life, Anita Pierce and would spend the next 49 years and 11 months together. From that union they had one daughter and one son.

Will retired from Maritime Reserve Fleet after 25 years of service as a journeyman electrician. Will was an avid hunter and loved listening to music.

Survivors include his wife, Anita Courts of Kountze; daughter, Angela Harper and husband Cody of Silsbee; son, Josh Courts of Kountze; grandchildren, Mallory Harper and Megan Harper, both of Silsbee; and lifelong friend, Harry Brown of Saratoga, Texas.

He is preceded in death by his parents, infant sister, and brother, Howard Courts.

The Courts and Harper families would like to thank Pastor Mike Tice, Bible Baptist Church, family and friends for their prayers during this difficult time.
