He had a book published in 2004 and had many pieces of his art published throughout the years.
Michael was preceded in death by his father, Gene Williams.

The family would like to invite everyone to an informal picnic in the park (Liberty Park on North Apopka in Inverness) from 12 to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012. Bring a dish to share. It will be a time of remembering and catching up with old friends. Come when you can, leave when you must - just like Michael.
