Dr. William Gordon Cummings, born October 19, 1942 died on the morning of December 28, 2023 at the Vanderbilt Critical Care Unit at the age of 81.

William, known as “Bill” or “Doc,” was a loving father, caring “Pop Pop,” and had passion for life, family, veterinary medicine, flying, and farming (cow whisperer).
