The Rev. Doyle E. Williams will be 80 years young Aug. 27. His children invite all to join them for a day of celebration Aug. 28 at 4 p.m. at Victory Free Will Baptist Church in Alton.
"Our father has been preaching God's word in this community of the past 35 years. Many lives have been touched by his ministry and his testimony of the life he leads," his children said.
The family requests casual dress and no gifts.
