RICHMOND, Texas - Mr. Jerry Tyler Williams died January 30, 2007 at the age of 64.
He was preceded in death by parents, L. Palmer Williams and Elizabeth Morris Williams.
He is survived by his loving children, Rebecca Hollingsworth, Richmond, Tex., Travis T. (Nicky) Williams, Richmond, Tex., Holley and Kelly Williams, Richmond Hill, Ga. He has 11 grandchildren and one great-grandchild, who was born on the day of his death. He is also survived by Johnny M. (Vickie) Williams, North Augusta, S.C., Beverly E. (Tony) Dunn, Dearing, and our very special sister, Pamela Joyce Williams of Gracewood, Ga.
Jerry was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and a Mason.
A memorial service was held in the Williams Cemetery in Uvalda, Ga., on Sunday, February 11, 2007, where his last wishes were to have his ashes spread over his ancestors dating back to the early 1800s.
His family of aunts and uncles in Uvalda, Lyons, and Vidalia were so very kind and loved him very much. Family meant everything to him. He was especially proud to be a descendent of the Cherokee Native Americans.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Stroke Association, P.O. Box 409410, Atlanta, Ga. 30384.
