William, known to many as "William the Warrior," stole hearts across the Gulf Coast. He has been battling a rare form of cancer for the past year. Hundreds followed his journey on Facebook.

William died Monday night at USA Children's and Women's Hospital.

Last week Mobile Fire-Rescue firefighters teamed up with Make-A-Wish to give William a special day as a firefighter.

His parents are asking in lieu of flowers, people instead make a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
