William "Bill" Rehrig never forgot his roots.
The Parryville native who went to Nashville and became affiliated with such major country music stars as the late Eddie Rabbitt, the late Jerry Reed, Dolly Parton and Tanya Tucker, often returned home to visit family members and perform with local bands.
Rehrig, 75, of Franklin, Tennessee, died suddenly on July 17.
A memorial service will be held this evening in Tennessee.
At 4 p.m. Sunday, a Celebration of Life will be held at the West End Fire Company No. 2, 855 Princeton Ave., Palmerton.
