Willie Tillman, also famously known as Fello, graduated from high school and went straight into the workforce. He managed the Rio Club and various other establishments owned by Fletcher Coates. He was a devoted Christian and later found the Nation of lslam.
Fello enjoyed spending time with family and friends, working, and talking about life values and bettering mankind. He also loved to write songs with his best friend, Lamar, that he loved with all his heart.
Fello departed this life on Thursday, July 25, 2019 leaving precious memories with his parents, Wanda Jones and Willie Tillman, Sr.; his brother, Carlos Jones; sister, Christian Jones Arnold; and other siblings on his father's side.
