A memorial service celebrating his life will be held at Highlands United Methodist Church on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at 10:00 with visitation following in the church fellowship hall. Bill was the son of the late William B. Hairston and Kate Steele Hairston, both of Birmingham, Alabama. Bill is survived by his wife of sixty years, Louise (“Weezie”) Poe Hairston, his son Bill Hairston III (Lynn) also of Birmingham, his sister Kathryn H. Green of Alexandria, Virginia, and his three nephews: Gordon Green (Barbara) of Grey, Georgia, Russell Green of Alexandria, Virginia, and Dillard Green (Regina) of Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
