Dick Williams Obituary
Dick Williams, a former resident of Lafayette, Colorado, and most recently Longmont, Colorado passed away on March 6, 2018, at the age of 86. Dick, a beloved dad, and husband, grandfather, and great-grandfather, was a Colorado native. Dick was born in Longmont in 1931 and grew up in the Dacono area where he graduated from High School in 1948. After high school, he joined the US Navy where he proudly served for 4 years. Dick was a veteran of the Korean War. After being honorably discharged in 1952, he married the love of his life, Verna Regnier. Dick and Verna were married in 1952 in Erie, Colorado. They raised eight children together and lived in Lafayette for over 50 years. Dick worked as a police officer in both Greeley and Lafayette, Colorado. He then worked as a Draught Maintenance Specialist for the Coors Distributor, Wano Company in Lafayette until his retirement in 1993. Dick was a very gregarious and friendly person. He had a genuine love of people and as the saying goes, "Dick never met a stranger". Five daughters, Diana, Debbie, Beth, Lynn, and Shelley, survive Dick. Three granddaughters, Ana (Beth), Jayme and Jennifer (LeeAnn), and two great-grandchildren, Savannah and Douglas, (Jennifer) also survive him.
