In Memory of Epsilon Eta # 1570 --- Will Coker

William Richard Coker, William began his journey on this earth in Chicago, Illinois, on June 3, 1994. From his earliest years, he expressed a thirst for knowledge. Throughout his life, he continued a quest to understand the intricate details of God’s great universe. In 2012, he graduated from Christian Brothers High School in Memphis, Tennessee. After graduation, he spent two years determining his path at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and realized his passion to be philosophy and understanding the complexity of the universe. He always tried to be the best person he could be and influenced those around him to strive to be better. He was a rising senior and set to graduate in May, 2016. While at UT, he participated in the Rugby Club and several athletic pursuits representing his fraternity. He was a member of the Epsilon Eta chapter of Sigma Nu Fraternity badge number 1570.
