Jeffery Scott "Jeff" Williams, age 52, a 15-year resident of Fort Mohave, Ariz., passed away suddenly on Monday, October 1, 2012, in Fort Mohave.

Jeff was born January 28, 1960, to Kenny Williams of Fort Mohave and Judie Williams (deceased). He was the second of five children, Perri (Mike) Dennis, Kenny (Traci) Williams both of Bullhead City, Jami Williams of Fort Mohave, and Judi Williams Parker (deceased).

He spent most of his youth living in Southern California. After a stint in the Navy, Jeff returned to his family in Hesperia, Calif., where he had a son, Brandon Williams, and lived there prior to moving to the Tri-State Area.

It was here in the Tri-State area he met his best friend of 12 years, Noelle Barela, with her children, Randy Barela and Alyssa Knight. Together, Jeff and Noelle had a daughter, Laci Shay-Laine Williams.

Jeff was Papa to Cage Barela. And he is also survived by his two aunts, June Wilson of Hesperia, Calif., and Vera Welliver of Rosehill, Kan.; and many nieces and nephews, as well as grandnieces and grandnephews.

Throughout his life, Jeff held many jobs, mostly in construction. He was an artist, very creative and could do anything, once he set his mind to it. We will miss his wicked sense of humor and his many talents!

There will be a celebration of life for Jeff beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, October 14, 2012, at the Laughlin Regional Heritage Greenway Trail Park in Laughlin, Nev.
