Williams, Robert
"Do not go gentle into that good night" - Thomas.
Robert E. Williams. passed away August 19, 2017. Born September 22, 1938, at midnight on the Equinox. He was truly a man for all seasons. A Graduate of The Ohio State University, he owned & operated Ironmaster steel fabrication and erection for 52 years making it one of the oldest operating companies of its kind in Ohio. Bob celebrated every day with a new adventure. He learned to pilot a plane in his early years; was an avid skier; certified sailing instructor; rode dressage; and golfed, but the passion that propelled him was his love of dance. He and his wife Karynn, trained and taught Ballroom dancing professionally for the 52 years of their marriage. They were members of Denzare & Stardusters dance clubs. Bob studied ballet for 20 years and performed in the Nutcracker. Moving to the country presented a new adventure. He was a charter member of the Ohio Murray Grey Assoc. with the largest herd east of the Mississippi and even imported a bull from Australia. He was also a member of the Ohio Morgan Horse Assoc. and raised a National Champion Park Harness stallion. As a true scholar he spent many hours with online/correspondence courses in agriculture, philosophy, law, etc. He was proud of his Kentucky roots but his true spirit was vested in his little Ohio farm and the satisfaction and solace it gave him. Preceded in death by parents Luther and Marie (Hayes) Williams, brother Tom Williams (Shirley), and daughter Tasha Williams (Grunn). Robert is survived by wife, Karynn Williams (Lovett); children, Tyler, Teal, Tia (Moon), and Tennyson; ten grandchildren; siblings, brother Keith (Nancy) and sister Judy Phillips (Jerry).
