WILLIAMS
Omar Glenn Williams went into the Lord's arms on Monday, March 24, 2014. He was born in Nixon, Texas to Omar Earl "Buck" Williams and Cora Augusta "Gussie" Williams on March 26, 1918. Glenn, as he was called, was preceded in death by his wife Letha Merle Williams. He is survived by his son Hank Williams, daughter-in-law Rosalind Garcia Williams, and his two granddaughters Katherine Leigh Williams and Christine Marie Williams. Glenn served in the U.S. Navy prior to World War II. The highlights of his Naval service were to be on the Amelia Earhart search aboard the USS Lexington CV2, marching across the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge, and assisting to deliver destroyers to Halifax, Nova Scotia for the Lend Lease agreement with England. He was a Warrant Officer in the U.S. Army during World War II and commanded three ocean-going tugboats. His command was part of those groups who ferried pieces of the famous floating docks to Omaha and Utah Beaches after the Normandy Landings. After the war, Glenn married Merle and began careers in ranching, the railroad, and finally in Civil Service at Kelly AFB from which he retired in 1975. He loved to hunt, fish, and garden.

A viewing will be held at Porter Loring Mortuary North on Friday, March 28th, from 5:00-7:30pm.
