August 14, 1977 ~ April 16, 2017 (age 39)
Brian Kim Willeford, 39, of Peoria, IL went home to be with Jesus on Sunday, April 16, 2017, the blessed day his Savior had risen.

Born on August 14, 1977 in Peoria to Victor K. and Vicki L. Marion Willeford, he married Valerie G. Thompson on February 13, 2008 in Pekin.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents.

Brian attended East Peoria High School, class of 1995. He previously worked for Mitsubishi in Normal and was currently working as a customer service agent with HGS in Peoria for RJ Reynolds. Brian had a beautiful heart that beat for Jesus. Everyone who met him could see right away, through his warm smile and compassion, his care for others. He was a hard worker and had a carpenter's hand. Brian loved fishing and camping, especially with his children. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him but for those who live in the Lord, they never see each other for the last time.
