Willie Williams Obituary

1921 - 2001
His delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither, and whatsoever he does shall prosper. -- Psalms 1:2-3


Willie Luther Williams was a native of Texas. He was born to the late Smither and Angeline Williams, in Huntsville, Texas, on July 25, 1921. He was the second of five children born to the union.

In 1940, he graduated from Sam Houston High School and soon after joined the United States Army where he served until late 1945. Mr. Williams retired from Southwestern Bell Corporation after 37 years of service, from 1947 to 1984, as a Communications Technician. Additionally, he received his Barbers license and established Williams’ Barber Shop in Settegast, Texas, a small suburb on the northeast side of Houston that has since been absorbed as a result of the city’s aggressive development. He subsequently received his Real Estate brokers license resulting in his responsibility for the development of several properties in the Third Ward residential community.

Mr. Williams joined Christ Temple Apostolic Church (CTAC) in 1949 and later received the gift of the Holy Ghost in 1950 under the leadership of the late District Elder A. J. Patterson. He functioned across many facets of the ministry, which includes New Saints Development, Sunday School Department (teacher), Home Bible Study (teacher), Outreach Ministry (volunteer) and even Communications (technician). He consistently attended CTAC for the remainder of his life, under the leadership of Suffragan Bishop David Allen, Sr., where his family yet remains faithful.

On December 3, 1961, he was united in holy matrimony to Mary Sias, a native of Lafayette, Louisiana, to whom he remained faithful and dedicated.

Mr. Williams was preceded in death by his father and mother: Smither and Angeline Williams; three brothers: Robert, Eugene and Beachum Williams; and two sons: Luther Ray and David Michael Williams.

He leaves to cherish his memories: his beloved wife of 40 years, Mary Williams; nine children: Marie Antoinette, Barbara Nell, Debra Lester, Linda Joyce, Freddie Morris, Audy Joseph Daniels (Cynthia), James Stacy Daniels (Sheila), Dwight Kenneth (Judy) and Mervin Lee (Wendy); one brother, James Williams (the late Texana); sixteen grandchildren, a host of nieces and nephews, a host of other relatives, the CTAC family, and many dear friends.

Just thought about you today, no particular reason, but you just came to my mind and I wanted to record the moment. The older I become the more I realize how great, and how truly wise you were. As our
