In Memory Of
Robert Williams - Fort White, FL

Robert D. Williams of Fort White, FL, passed away into the comforting arms of his heavenly Father early Friday morning on May 8, 2020.

Robert was born on May 21, 1931, in Auburndale, FL, and was one of ten children. He joined the US Air Force at the age of 20 and was a flight mechanic on B29's, flying all over Europe and the world. In 1959, he was honorably discharged and married the love of his life in 1960. He then went to work for Eastern Airlines, where he worked for many years, retiring in 1989. Next, he worked as a school bus driver for Dade County for 11 years, retired again, and bought 11 acres in North Florida, where he lived out his final years.

He was very active in both the Assemblies of God and the Church of God throughout his life, serving as a deacon, Sunday School teacher, Royal Rangers leader, the superintendent of Sunday School, and a sound man.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Jennie Williams; daughter Karina (Craig) of Atlanta and son Mark (Rebecca) of Colorado Springs; six grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, and two step-great-grandchildren; and his first great-grandchild due in June. He is also survived by a brother EJ (Shirley), a sister Hazel, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mom and dad, Earnest and Julia Williams, and several brothers and sisters.

While we will miss him greatly, we know where he is. He is wearing his Johnny Cash black hat, dancing on the streets of gold, and is now the chief gardener, due to his vast earthly knowledge he brought from his earthly home. The grass in heaven will never be greener and the blueberries, collards, tomatoes, turnip greens, squash, and okra will never be tastier. And he won’t have to chase off the deer or squirrels anymore!

Rest In peace, Dad. You need to get that heavenly garden going. We miss you but look forward to some delicious food at the supper of the Lamb.
