Not sure what to say?

I worked for Jack as my first real estate job when mu family and I moved to Minocqua in 1977. I have many fond memories of Jack and the associates that worked for Williams Realty. Jack was a real gentleman and I give my condolences to his wonderful family as I know he will be greatly missed by all.

Sincerely,

My husband and I worked at Williams Realty in Minocqua, I was there for 20+ years and Bob for a number of years. We always enjoyed Jack Williams stopping by, he was a very special person, we always learned from talking with Jack. a wonderful kind gentleman. A REAL GENTLEMAN.

Jack would tell story after story while speaking to Realtors at continuing education or at the bar. Usually very funny and sometimes they had been costly to his firm. Sadly missed. Gail Abegglen, Coldwell Banker Action

Jack was always, always, a Gentleman - he was a great asset for the WRA and left a wonderful imprint on the world of Real Estate. He helped me when I served as President - good advice and listening.
Go with honor, Jack!

Our sympathy to the Williams family from the Kocik family. We have many memories of Jack, but one that stands out is that Jack really liked Roy's "Tilley hat" and decided to get one for himself. It was slightly different from Roy's, but the brim suited Jack, as well as the protection from the sun.
Unfortunately I will not be able to attend Jack's service, because I will be in CA, with my Dad, helping him to celebrate his 98th birthday!
Our prayers are with you.

The Williams family. I share in your sorrow. My thoughts are with you.

Jack Williams was an epic leader with organized real estate in Wisconsin. He prevailed in getting the first building built for the Wisconsin Realtors Association in Madison in 1979. He was a mentor to me personally in my position as Executive Vice President of the Wisconsin Realtors Association from 1979 to 2011. Bill Malkasian

Jack was a true gentleman and a class act. He made everyone feel comfortable around him and genuinely was interested in your life personally and professionally. I smile when I think of the time he bought me a drink at a Chamber event when I was just starting out in banking. I will never forget how important that made me feel. Our thoughts and prayers will be with the family.
