Harold Williams Obituary

Harold "Deke" Williams, 73 years young. A cutting-edge electronics innovator, former Marine and devoted husband and father, passed away unexpectedly on Nov. 8th, with his family at his side. He is truly missed by his family and friends. Deke accomplished a great deal in his life with his hard work ethic, self discipline, generosity and love for his family. He proudly served his country in the Marine Corps from 1959 to 1963.

An owner of an electronics manufacturing business, he was the first to market a GPS antenna in the early 80's. Today, they can be found worldwide, from our farmlands to the top of Mt. Everest. Among his many other inventions and innovations, he developed technology to advance MRI and radiation therapy machines, which have helped save many lives.

He devoted his life to his family, including his wife and three children. He made sure they had what they needed to pursue their dreams and achieve success. He made sure they knew he loved them through his actions.

In his later years, he fulfilled his life-long dream to restore and race vintage sports cars. He also enjoyed traveling with his wife.

Always inspiring, he will be remembered for his work and generosity. He left a wonderful fingerprint on our world and is loved and missed greatly by his family and friends.

Funeral services will be held November 15th, 2:00 p.m., at Pierce Brothers Valley Oaks in Westlake Village.
