Waterford - It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Spencer C. Williams Sr., 87, beloved husband of Suzanne Williams, Thursday, Dec. 10, 2020. Spencer was born in New London May 16, 1933, to the late George and Caroline (Tinker) Williams.

He attended local schools and graduated from the former Chapman Tech High School. He started his career right out of high school, working with his dad as a licensed electrician and eventually taking over the family business. He switched careers and became the very first superintendent for the Town of Waterford Utility Commission.

He was united in marriage to the former Suzanne (Durand) Hoelck, July 30, 1977, spending 43 wonderful years together. Spencer lived and raised his family in Waterford on Niantic River Road. Weekends were spent at his second home in Vermont, skiing and snowmobiling. Upon retirement, Vermont became their permanent home where they enjoyed hosting their many friends and family.

Spencer was a lifetime member of Oswegatchie Fire Company No. 4 and served as chief for 11 years. He was president of the Lions Club, member of the County Chiefs Fire Association, the Tax Review Board for the town of Waterford and served as 3rd Selectman for the Town of Waterford. He moved back to Waterford in 2014 to be close to family.

Spencer will be remembered for his quick wit, love of his family and the famous Fourth of July parties hosted together with their loving neighbors.

In addition to his wife Suzanne, he leaves behind his children, Spencer Williams Jr. (Chrystine), Neil Hoelck (Pamela), Tami Sposito (Chuck), Michael Hoelck (Victoria), Merri Klein (Michael); his sister Greer Crawley (Michael); and his beloved grandchildren: Jennifer (Christina), CJ (Morghan), James, Artie (Emily) Cole, Nicole, Alexandria, Spencer and Trevor; and many dear friends and extended family. He was predeceased by two brothers, Graham Williams and Craig Williams.

A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Dec. 18, 2020, at Jordan Cemetery in Waterford. In his memory, donations may be made to Oswegatchie Fire Company No. 4, 441 Boston Post Road, Waterford, CT 06385. The Impelliterri-Malia Funeral Home has been entrusted with his care.
