Lloyd Williams Jr., 82 passed away peacefully at his home in Montevallo, Alabama October 2, 2020.

He was a graduate of Hanceville High School and the University of Alabama.

He was a retired geography teacher and fruit horticulturist. He spent years developing his fruit collection of apples, blueberries, peaches, persimmons, scuppernongs, plus other fruits, and vegetables and raised honeybees for a time. He loved to entertain with his “historic and geographic tidbits.”

He was a faithful husband to his wife Pauline of more than 56 years. He is survived by his daughter, Theressa Baumann; son-in-law, Kenneth Baumann; and two grandchildren: Austin Callahan and Addison Baumann.

Theressa’s fondest memories include the many road trips, vacations around the country with her dad, and their love for watching Alabama football together.

Uncle Lloyd was one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever known. Growing up, I thought he knew absolutely everything. As I grew older, I learned I was probably right. He was a scientist, a botanist, a geographer, a political analyst, an economist... a true scholar. He spoke other languages and referred to God’s creations by their scientific names. He had a gift; he could make things grow. We enjoyed many of the vegetables and fruits from Uncle Lloyd and Aunt Pauline’s vegetable garden and fruit orchard. Of course, we always looked forward to the season when the peaches became ripe. He grew several different varieties. His blueberries were so great that other family members now have blueberries growing at their homes that started off at his farm. His legacy lives on in what he taught, in what he grew, and in how he loved and cared for his family. I’ll miss you, Uncle Lloyd. Until then...

As he sat in the foyer at church I would stop and sit with him. We would frequently talk about blue berries. He frequently offered to share. Sometimes we talked about business and even the stock market. He always had something wonderful to share with me. I appreciated his kindness and his smile.
