William “Will” Joseph Fanning was born on January 8, 1993 in Jackson, Mississippi. He was the only child of Tom and Marjie Fanning. Will died on April 18, 2021 in Hampton, Virginia. Will graduated from St. Joseph Catholic High School in 2011. He attended Mississippi State University and was a huge Bulldog fan. He graduated from the University of South Alabama, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering. After graduation, Will was employed by Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi, as an Engineer 2 in the Naval Architecture unit. Engineering was in his blood, his great grandfather and both grandfathers were engineers. He loved his work and touched the lives of so many people with whom he worked.

He was a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church, Pascagoula, Mississippi. As a child he served as an acolyte at Chapel of the Cross. While attending St. Joseph, he loved to have theological discussions. He believed in Jesus Christ as our Savior.
Will is survived by his parents, Tom and Marjie Fanning of Pascagoula; his grandfather, Bill and step-grandmother Nita Fanning of Madison; aunts and uncles Ann and John McManus of Madison, Herb and Janet Fanning of Atlanta, Georgia, and Joey and Leyla Goodsell of Florence; and many cousins. Will was preceeded in death by his paternal grandmother, Marjorie Holder Fanning, his maternal grandparents Joseph Edward and Marion Burge Goodsell and his uncle Jessie Burge Goodsell. His life in this life will be dearly missed by his family and many friends whom he loved and loved him.
