Jimmy Dale Williams Obituary
Jimmy Dale Williams July 9, 1941 -November 22, 2012 Jimmy Dale Williams was born to Alvis and Verna Flanagan Williams on July 9, 1941, in Depew, Oklahoma. The family relocated to Lamont, California in 1943. Jimmy graduated from Arvin High School in 1959 and married his sweetheart, Doris Kasinger, in 1961. As a young man, Jimmy worked for DiGiorgio Farms before becoming a painter. For the past 35 years, he was a painting contractor and developed Jim Williams Painting, Incorporated, with a strong work ethic and unparalleled integrity. He was known for his exceptional skill and custom work. Jim believed a man's reputation was of utmost importance and ran his business accordingly. Dad was the ultimate family man who lived to love and provide for his wife, daughters, and grandchildren. He was devoted to his wife of 52 years and was unfailingly committed to his daughters and grandchildren. A loving and affectionate grandfather, Papa was happiest when surrounded by his grandchildren. Jim loved God with all his heart and was a longtime member of First Pentecostal Church. He was a faithful and generous supporter and was proud to be part of the church family led by Bishop Leon Frost and Pastor Kevin Bradford. Jim was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Kenneth Williams, and his sister, Norma Austin. He is survived by his wife, Doris; daughters Karen Frost and Rebecca Monks (Don); grandchildren Lauren and Philip Portillo, Roman Juarez, and Emma Frost, and numerous nieces, nephews, and close friends. Heartfelt thanks to the FPC ministers and congregation, Tommy and Tonia Aguilar, Heart Hospital CCU nurses Jamie, Keshav, and Enrique and Ken and Cheri Condren, and the many friends and family members who continue to support us during this heartbreaking time. Visitation will be at First Pentecostal Church, 1418 West Columbus, Wednesday, November 28, from 5-6:30 p.m. Funeral service will follow at 7 p.m. Graveside service will be held at Hillcrest Memorial Park Thursday at 11:30 a.m. On the last day of his life, Daddy woke up and went to the house of God. After church, he went to lunch with his family. That night, Daddy lay down beside his wife, spoke to her, and went into cardiac arrest. He wouldn't have planned his final day with us any differently. We will remember everything you taught us, Daddy, and although you're with us in spirit, our hearts will be forever broken. www.bakersfield.com/obits
