John C Williams
August 20, 1960 – May 10, 2018
John Curtis Williams ( known to all as Jack) died peacefully at Reid Health on May 10, 2018 from complications due to congestive heart failure. Jack was born on August 20, 1960 in Darke County, Ohio and was the only child of Joyce Catherine Williams (née Mason) and Alan Duane Williams. Jack lived his entire life in the greater Dayton area, including Brookville and Arcanum. Jack resided in Greenville for the past 20 years. He was preceded in death by his mother Joyce in 1998 and his father Al in 1978. Jack was always a joy to be around. No one was as kind, sweet, or as gentle as Jack. He was blessed with a wonderful sense of humor and he shared it always with his family, friends and even strangers. He was very fond of dogs, especially Heidi, a collie that was part of the family when Jack was growing up. He enjoyed drawing and painting, having a particular fondness of the color red. Jack showed an immense talent in these mediums, possessing a keen sense of perspective. He enjoyed watching old westerns and admired some of the superheros like Batman and Spiderman. His biggest love of all was Mickey Mouse. He loved listening to music and thus enjoyed watching a variety of musicals. He loved all kinds of food, especially McDonalds and Bob Evans, and he found it hard to resist a milkshake. Each year, Jack looked forward to trips to the Darke County Fair. It was always held around his birthday and it was the highlight of his year. Jack relished the simpler things in life and his outlook offered a valuable lesson on how to live and enjoy life, without all of the complexity and stress that often obscure joy. Jack lived this every day and his joy spread out to us all. We will forever love him, and he will be truly missed. Jack is survived by his two uncles, Ralph Mason (Rita) of Denver, CO and James Schlosser, D.V.M (Joann) of Crawfordsville, IN, as well as many, many cousins. He is equally survived by Tim Burns and his wonderful family, who generously and lovingly folded Jack into their own lovely family as truly one of their own. Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation to the Burns family for their love and kindness that so enriched Jack’s quality of life. Love and family have no boundaries. A celebration of life will be held at 11:00 AM on Tuesday May 15, 2018 at Zechar Bailey Funeral Home, Greenville, Ohio with Pastor Peter Menke officiating. Interment will follow at Blakesburg Cemetery, Fincastle, Indiana. The family will receive friends 1 hour prior to services on Tuesday at the funeral home.
