William Clinton Matthewson Jr, age 66, of Sand Springs, Oklahoma was born on April 25, 1953 to William Clinton Sr. and Ruth (Lewis) Matthewson in Tulsa, Oklahoma and passed from this life on January 4, 2020 at his home. \r\n\r\nBill was preceded in death by his parents, William and Mary Ruth Matthewson, his grandparents, Kerney and Virginia Matthewson and his maternal grandparents, Frank and Catherine Lewis. He is survived by his brother Kerney Matthewson, Aunt Frankie Henderson, numerous cousins and many, many friends.\r\n\r\nBill grew up in Sand Springs and graduated from Charles Page High School. He worked as a welder for Smithco. Bill started playing guitar at the age of six and the love for it never left him. Playing music was a major part of his life. The center of his life was his grandmother, Catherine Lewis and his other grandmother, Virginia Matthewson (Nanny). Bill always had a smile and a word of encouragement for everyone. He loved ice cream and would find any excuse to go to Braums. Bill had a strong faith and whole-heartedly knew that God had His hand on his life and prayed for His will to be done. Bill enjoyed life to the fullest. One of his last requests was to be laid beside his grandmother and "don't cry for me". \r\n\r\nI'll see you soon, Billy Boy!
