He was a dedicated employee of L. Gordon Iron & Metal for 38 years. He dearly loved his family and friends. He had such a huge heart and love for others, and he always looked for opportunities to help everyone.

He was a fan of the Chiefs and racing. He was most proud of his granddaughter, Rylee. He touched the lives of so many people, and he will be greatly missed.
Survivors include his daughter, Brittany Williams (Darren); a granddaughter, Rylee Williams; two sisters, Cynthia Hall and Judy Hager (Bobby); and his fiancé, Correna Wilcox. Also surviving are two nephews, Willis Hall and Judson Hall.
