My father was a man who cared deeply about his family especially his mother,my beloved grandmother.As a child i would even tease him about being a mommas boy which my Uncle Gary confirmed.As boys when the kids would get in trouble my dad was always golden often not being punished.He was not an overbearing father letting you be yourself no matter how outrageous.When I was a teenager a friend and I had obtained a couple hundred golf balls from the local driving range.We were in the backyard in golden acres driving them out of the yard and hitting houses and cars out of our view.My dad comes out and asked what we were doing i told him and he says give me that club im thinking im gonna be clubbed then he asks for a ball and drives one out of the yard hitting it a few house down so all three of us had a great time doing this until we thought about the cops maybe coming so we ran in the house.I have many stories like this but it just shows what a fun loving free spirit he was who will be missed immensely by family and friends

Steven always had a smile on his face and kind words for everyone. Even though I left the Williams family many years ago I still think of everyone. I even went to his shop in Fayetteville a couple times and found some cool treasures. Rest In Peace uncle Steven. God Bless your family.

My daddy...as a little girl, all I wanted to do was help Daddy work in the garage, learning to strip paint off furniture and then staining it to create something beautiful. He was a kind, loving daddy. He taught me the importance of family and acceptance and forgiveness. His laugh could turn a sour mood around in no time. His sheer, honest delight in fun and fanciful mischief. One time, we were at pick a part, off Spencer highway I think. I couldn't have been more than 7. The jack on the car failed and the bumper or something landed on his hand. Somehow he made it a game and turned my gear into belly laughs. As he clutched his wrapped, bloody hand, he pushed the car peddles and I sat on his lap stearing us to Bayshore Hospital. I never laughed and cried so much at the same time.
