Not sure what to say?

I grew up on the same block in Oakland and Mr Williams always shared word of encouragement to kids in the neighbor. he was a father figure to many of us. Rickey (Mark) Shehee

Always a smile and such a great laugh. I had the pleasure to play for Billy and Doc in Sioux Falls. You will be missed. God bless.

My deep condolences to the Williams family. You have lost a husband, father and I am sure a good friend to you all. I have lost a very good and old friend as has all of Baseball. So long Billy. You will be missed....Murf

Our condolences to the Williams family.
from The Davis Family.

Very sad to learn of the passing of Billy Williams. He is one of the dearest men I have had the honor of knowing. Best part of my baseball career was working for he and Doc Edwards. Billy took to Donelle and I immediately and made us family. We lost contact when he left Sioux City but he never left my heart. RIP Billy and Godspeed.

So saddened to hear the news of Mr. Williams passing. Sending the family our deepest condolences. We will keep the family in our prayers.

Gloria and Michael; Thank you for sharing your “Billy” with me and Shayn. We enjoyed so much being with him at the ballpark and doing baseball for unending hours with his encouragement to keep Shayn throwing. Our love for him will live on. God Bless you and your extended families. Lennie Mitchell (Shayn Holbrook's mom)

Billy; I will be listening to your coaching words from heaven. Thank you for keeping me in the right direction and for believing in myself. God Bless your family. My thoughts and prayers are always with your family.
