Mario B. Williams

1954 - 2018 Obituary
Mario B. Williams Born August 10, 1954, in Lakeport, CA, passed away July 7, 2018. Mario is survived by his mother, Beverly John; his wife and best friend of 23 years, Lyann Williams; sons, Lindsay Williams, Anthony Williams, Curtis Williams, Hunter Williams, Connor Williams, and Donovan Williams; daughters, Savannah Williams, Fiona Williams, Verna Thomas and Sacheen Williams; sister, Jackie John; and eight grandchildren, Quinn Williams, Eli Williams, Aries Rios, William Buford, Dayami Buford, Angelina Thomas, Mayson Williams and Isaac "Mr. Cheeks" Williams. Mario is preceded in death by his father, Curtis John; and brothers, Craig John and Dominic John. Mario graduated from Clearlake High School in 1972, where he excelled in both baseball and football. Mario received a scholarship to Humboldt State University, where he continued to be a force to be reckoned with on the football field. After Humboldt State, Mario decided on a different path, so he took off to a Chicago trade of ironwork. Mario has done it all. From building parking garages, drilling for oil, and general construction. Most importantly there wasn't ever a time where Mario wouldn't spark up a conversation with someone he knew around town, or anyone else he met on any given day. Mario had a great energy for life. He was always helping anyone he could offer help to. He was a people pleaser, but he especially loved keeping his wife happy. In fact, it is said that his favorite words were, "Yes, sweetheart. You're right." He enjoyed his time with friends and family most and what a large family he has! Mario will be forever missed and never forgotten, especially by Lyann. She was his star and he her light. Just as she said to Mario every night, Lyann wants to once again say, "Goodnight, sweetheart. Sleep tight." Traditional Native American Visitation for Mario will be held at Big Valley Gymnasium, 1002 Osprey Ct., in Lakeport, starting on Monday, July 16, 2018, at 11 a.m. and ending on Thursday, July 19, 2018, at 11 a.m. Arrangements by Chapel of the Lakes Mortuary 707-263-0357, 994-5611, or chapelofthelakes.com.
