Those left to cherish memories include his devoted wife of 53 years, Joyce Williams of Blue Mountain, one daughter, Teressa Williams of Blue Mountain, a brother-in-law, Chris Cox of Dumas, two very special grandchildren, Tyler and Austin Bryant of Hickory Flat and his beloved canine companion, Bruno.
