Our guide and protector throughout childhood, none of us really understood why our parents called Will Moreno "Little Willie." True, his father was a great man, but Will's own presence was so vast that other souls orbited around him. I do not think he ever fully understood his power to delight us in good times and comfort us in bad. I'm not sure I would have survived to adulthood without him.

Willie was an awesome human being and a great friend. Funny, lovable guy. He was a great singer, but his whistling was something else...anything from "Flight of the Bumblebee" to the theme song from Mayberry and the Andy Griffith Show. It was so much fun to listen to Willie do his thing and he brought rounds and rounds of applause with every tune. My deepest and dearest condolences go out to his wonderful family. May God give you all peace

Willie was the Leader of the Moreno kids growing up in our neighborhood. The memories with him and that family are something I will treasure for the rest of my life. Willie will be missed but never forgotten. Whistle in Heaven for everyone! RIP my friend!

Willie was one of the sweetest people I've ever met. His love of family and friends will always be an inspiration. Others could take lessons from his life.

We have lots of fond memories building forts and all playing together in Lakewood. We will miss Willie

I loved Whistling Willie! What an amazing talent. He always blew me away with his whistling, no pun intended (he would have loved the pun with his sense of humor!). Rest in peace, Willie!

I went to high school with Willie and while I haven't seen him for many years, I still remember him. He was so kind and gentle, and had a smile for everyone. Please accept my deepest sympathy and know that you will all be in my thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear of Willie's passing. He was a big part of my life as all of the Moreno's have been. Willie's kind heart and awesome sense of humor will surely be missed. May peace be with the Moreno clan during this turbulent time and may you find strength in your faith and your strong family ties.
