Obie Williams Jr. was born on November 5, 1949, the eighth child of the late Obie Williams Sr. and the late Sylvester Williams.

He was an active member of the Trustee Board and received a number of awards and plaques. He along with Gary Henry started the church largest bar-b-cue which was held twice a year. He remained an active member of his church until his health decline. He loved entertaining his friends and church members. He would host an annual cookout at his home for male friends on the Saturday before Father’s Day. They would enjoy each other’s company while talking about the “Good Old Days”. Obie will always be remembered as the owner of Williams Mobile Home Parks, working hard, watching old western movies and telling a joke or two while dropping a few lines of wisdom.

Two great grandsons; Camden and Camron Williams. Two brothers; Robert (Maude) Williams, and Norman (Kitty) Williams.
