Arthur Frederick Will

August 18, 1931 — April 13, 2023



Arthur Frederick Will, 91, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, April 13, 2023. Fondly known as Art to his friends and “Papa” to his family, he was born on August 18, 1931 in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania to Paul and Catherine Will. Art spent his early years in the Air Force and retired as a Senior Master Sergeant. He then had a successful career in the motor home business. He loved gardening, tractors, motorcycles, good food, fun socks, jokes, vintage cars, and spending as much time as possible with his family. He enjoyed using his talented hands and artful eyes to repair things that were broken or in need of a refresh. He collected lots of pieces and parts to use in his handiwork and owned every tool known to man. He took well-deserved pride in his role as a father and grandfather. He freely shared his time and abilities and openly vocalized his love and appreciation of the ones he held most dear. He was a fierce protector, teacher, mentor, and friend to the lucky ones that he kept close. He leaves behind his loving wife of 54 years, Jacqueline Gayle Will, his brother Regis Will, his son Steve Will, daughter Paula Will Osborn, son-in-law Dr. Drew Osborn, as well as four grandchildren-Stephen Will, John Will, Will Eriksson and Ava Eriksson. A celebration of his life, well-lived and well-loved, will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2023 for family and close friends. Please contact the family for details. Smith Funeral & Cremation Service, Maryville, 865-983-1000,
