Stephen Martin Williams

Stephen Martin WILLIAMS 8/16/49 ~ 4/13/2011 Seattle native Steve Williams died Wednesday following a valiant struggle with kidney failure and diabetes. Steve's career spanned two industries: home electronics and personal fitness. An original owner of Speakerlab, Steve went on to hold executive posts at Harman, Onkyo, and served as the CEO of Carver Corporation. He also held executive positions at Cybex and TechnoGym. 'Tenacious and gracious,' Steve was a mentor to many in both industries. In his last years, Steve experienced a litany of health problems, which he faced with dignity and honor. He hoped that his calamities might serve to educate others (www.LindaGromkoMDKidneyCare.blogspot.com).

Steve was most proud of his daughter Brita Elizabeth. He is also survived by wife Linda Gromko, MD, stepson Tim Franklin, and sister Carole Jo Williams. As Steve so enjoyed his wife's diverse medical practice, the family asks that memorial contributions be directed to Ingersoll Gender Center or Planned Parenthood. A memorial party will be held at a later date. See Stephen's guestbook at www.Legacy.com.
