Mr. William Otis Short, affectionately called "Billy" was born, May 24, 1953 in Toledo, Ohio to Bertha Lee Short and Henry Lee. Billy had the true gift of music. He "came out of the womb" beating and tapping a beat on any surface he could find. He later dabbled with guitar and a few other instruments but drumming was his calling and life's purpose. Bill was always chasing his dream. He moved to California to play drums in a rock band in the early 80's and traveled and toured with bands all over Toledo, Ohio and Orange County, California. He played short stints with bands like the Tower of Power, the Average White Band and auditioned to play for The Jacksons! He lived the ambitious Rock Star life until his tragic, severe injury in 1986. He completed his earthly journey on Thursday, March 30, 2017 and was preceded in death by grandparents, Anderson and Victoria Martin; parents, Henry Lee and Bertha Lee Short and beloved brother, John Short of Toledo, OH. William leaves to cherish his memory, sisters, Juanita Martin of Palm Springs, CA and Martha Anne Short of Riverside, CA; brother, Henry Short of Toledo, OH and a host of other loving relatives and kind friends. A Service of Memory Will be 11 a.m. Saturday, April 29, 2017 at The C. Brown Funeral Home, Inc. Chapel, 1629 Nebraska Avenue 43607.
