Michael Joseph Williamson, age 63 from Marietta, GA, passed away unexpectedly on April 11, 2018. He is survived by his beloved wife, Susan Williamson, and their 3 beautiful daughters: Michelle Williamson; Kimberly Callicoat, her husband Larry, and two grandsons, Cole and Aaron; Andrea Williamson, her husband Gabriel, and future grandchild “baby Tarzan.”

Mike was born on a military base in Asmara, Eritrea, Ethiopia. He grew up in Daytona Beach where he found his love for swimming, surfing, and lifeguarding. He attended the University of Florida where he earned his MBA and became an avid Gator fan. He began his career in finance at Barnett Bank in Florida and continued working at several banks until he retired. Mike and Susan loved welcoming family and friends into their Atlanta home on the Chattahoochee River. His hobbies included hunting, fishing, skeet shooting, and hiking. He was happiest sitting on his back porch with a cigar and bourbon surrounded by his loved ones. Mike celebrated life to the fullest and will be deeply missed by family and friends.

Mike is also survived by his sister Linda and her husband Doug; brother Steve and his wife Amy; sister-in-law Pam; brother-in-law Bill; sister-in-law Donna and her husband Bobby. In addition, he was also delighted to have several nieces and nephews across generations: Jennie, TR, Josie and Charlie Hileman; Joyce, Ruger, Brayden and Lindslie Lewis; Justin Lienau; Mitchell, Sam, Jackson and Cooper Lienau. He is preceded in death by his mother Joyce Williamson.

A Celebration of Life will be held on May 19th in Jacksonville, FL. It will be hosted by Jerry and Biggs Knauer at 1 p.m. in their home at 4141 Ortega Blvd.

When I came down from New York City to join the Barnett Bank of the Treasure Coast management team in the summer of 1989, Mike made this Yankee feel right at home and we became fast friends, sharing a perspective and sense of humor that transcended backgrounds (as well as football team allegiances). My wife Ana and I were shocked and saddened to hear this news; Mike and I had talked about getting a reunion together with the old gang and I really regret we weren't able to make that happen. Ana and I send our heartfelt condolences to Sue and the family.

For my cousin Susan, my nieces Michelle, Kim, Andrea and to our extended families, there are few words of comfort I can offer in the wake of Mike's sudden and unexpected loss. I will miss Mike's generous family holiday event gatherings, the Williamson Christmas cards, his humor and fellowship, his love of the UF Gators and his strong family patriarch role.
Susan, please contact me if there is something I can do to help.

With love,
Your cousin Mark Murray
