Albert L. Williams, Jr., 73, of Mountain Top, entered into eternal rest on Saturday, March 9, 2013, at Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.
Born in Wilkes-Barre on July 30, 1939, he was a son of the late Albert and Lillian (Allen) Williams Sr.
Albert was a graduate of GAR Memorial High School, Wilkes-Barre, class of 1957, where he lettered in football and basketball, and was the first president of the GAR Key Club in 1956. He was named All-Scholastic in 1956 as a tight end. He also attended Wilkes College and Bloomsburg State College.
He started his working career as a sales representative for Folz Vending Co., which then changed to the CF Mueller Co., where he worked for 37 years, and then to UniLever/Best Foods. He was a member of the Wilkes-Barre First Primitive Methodist Church and served as church steward and treasurer. He is currently a member of the New Life Community Church, Mountain Top, where he sang in its choir.
Al enjoyed many years cruising with his wife and friends, where every new port was an adventure. Summers were spent with his family at the Outer Banks, N.C., where the most important thing to Al was spending time with his children and grandchildren. He especially enjoyed football and watching his grandchildren play sports, and he truly loved anything with chocolate on it.
Al is survived by his wife, the former Rosemarie Pohutski; his children, Dawn Darden and her husband, David, Mountain Top; Albert Williams III and his wife, Joanie, Mountain Top, and Cheryl Valdes and her husband, Ray, Pittsburgh; his sister, Margaret Smith, and her husband, Bert, Florida, and his grandchildren, Matthew and Justin Darden, Luke Valdes, and RJ and Sabrina Williams.
