Mr. Williams loved softball from an early age when he played on one of the adult league teams in Duplin County and coached James Sprunt softball teams. Later in life he was a wonderful supporter of the grandchildren as they played the sport. While he enjoyed playing the card game "Setback", he also enjoyed being outside mowing grass. The "Cub" tractor, the John Deere, and the Ford truck were among his most favorite earthly possessions. He always loved to travel and spending quality time making memories with his grandchildren. He loved his family with all his heart and spoiling the grandchildren was something he viewed very seriously.
A service to celebrate his life will be held on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 11:00 A.M. in the 401 West Main Street chapel of Padgett Funeral & Cremation Services in Wallace. The family will greet friends at a 10:00 A.M. visitation prior to the service and at other times at the residence. Interment will be in Jacob Cavenaugh Cemetery on Hwy 41 in Wallace.
