Williamson

BOSSIER CITY, LA - Mr. Charles Roy "Charlie" Williamson, 80, passed away peacefully at his home of 42 years in Bossier City, Louisiana on December 1, 2012. He was a cancer survivor and had been cancer free for almost 2 years. He was so proud that he was able to live at home and be independent.

On November 17th, he celebrated his 80th birthday with his immediate family and church friends, George Franklin and David Herminghunsen. On November 18th, he was able to drive himself to North Arkansas to visit with extended family, see God's beautiful fall colors, and visit his wife's grave one last time. On his final day, he ran errands, mowed his own lawn, spoke to family and friends, put his 4-legged best friends in their kennels, and went to sleep on this earth for the last time.

He loved God, his church, family, friends, traveling and telling stories especially about his time in the military. He retired at Barksdale Air Force Base after proudly serving 20 years in the military. Over the past few years he enjoyed spending more time with his children, grand and great-grandchildren, and helping with Angel's puppy rescue.

Mr. Williamson was preceded in death by his wife, Nancy Genevieve (Montgomery) Williamson; his parents, Roy and Lula (Plaster) Williamson; and one sister, Mattie Lou (Williamson) Newkirk.

He is survived by two sons, Charles Kenneth Williamson and wife Kathy of Shreveport, Louisiana and Marcus Dean Williamson of Bossier City, Louisiana; one daughter, Angel (Williamson) Alexander and husband Scott Harlan of Bossier City, Louisiana; brothers-in-law, H.L. Montgomery and wife Linda of Grubbs, Arkansas and Bobby Montgomery and wife Denise of England, Arkansas; one sister-in-law, Sue Montgomery Wise of Jonesboro, Arkansas; seven grandchildren, Laura, Ben, and Brian Williamson, Rebecca Williamson-LaGrange, and Marc Williamson, and Grant and Genevieve Alexander; and four great-grandchildren, Karlie, Katie, Caleb, and Caden LaGrange.

A memorial service will be held at 6:00 p.m. Monday, December 10, 2012 at Barksdale Baptist Church in Bossier City, Louisiana with Bro. Calvin Hubbard officiating.

The family wishes to express their appreciation to Dr. Dan Moller, Dr. Tommy Mook, the members of Barksdale Baptist Church, his housekeeper and friend, Dianne Dawson, and his neighbors for their acts of kindness and years of dedicated care.
