WILLIAM E. DOWELL III
July 10, 1977 - July 7, 2017
William E. Dowell III, 39, was born July 10, 1977 in St. Paul, Minnesota to the proud parents, Dorita and William Dowell, Jr.
The family relocated to Kansas City, Missouri where, “Tinker,” as he was affectionately called, was educated in the public schools and attended Northeast High School. William loved to tinker with bikes, motorcycles, small engines and electronics. That’s how he got his name, taking apart everything he could with his hands, and putting them back together again.
William was a contractor of construction, but was a natural “Jack of all Trades” because there wasn’t anything he couldn’t do. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, riding motor-cycles, playing pool and just being outdoors. He also had a knack inside the house as well, with cooking and sewing. Tinker even made covers for his hunting gear.
William was a beautiful soul, a wonderful son, a loving father and a great friend. He is truly riding free. He departed this life on Friday, July 7, 2017. His paternal grandfather, Alonzo Chess and maternal grandmother, Eva Tindrell both preceded him in death.
He leaves to cherish his memory six sons, Jaunito Dowell, William E. Dowell IV, Zachary Dowell, Kaleb Dowell, Isaiah Dowell and Aiden Dowell; one daughter, Sarah Ramirez; parents, Dorita Dowell and William “Eddie” Dowell, Jr.; one granddaughter, Mayliegh and a host of uncles, aunts, cousins, other relatives and friends.
