William Austin McLain, Jr., passed away on January 31, 2024 at Tift Regional Medical Center. He was born on May 29, 1964, in Albany, Georgia to Sara Scarborough McLain and the late William Austin McLain, Sr. With a warm and caring heart, he brought joy to his family and friends throughout his life.

William grew up in Tifton and attended Tift County High School, graduating in 1982. He was drawn to the agricultural industry where he pursued a career as a Pecan Farm Manager at RSR Farms in Ashburn. Beyond his professional pursuits, William had a deep sense of devotion to his family. He found great joy in taking care of his beloved mother, Sara. 

One can never forget the special bond between William and his cherished dog, Sophie. They were inseparable companions who shared many happy memories together. Sophie brought immense happiness to William's life with her loyalty and unconditional love.

In his earlier years, William had a passion for sports. As a young adult, he enjoyed playing basketball and softball. However, it was on the golf course where he truly thrived. Golf provided him with relaxation and allowed him to connect with friends while enjoying the outdoors.
