Dear Friends and Family, I mourn with you the loss of Dave Williams. We worked together in Consular Affairs for years. Dave made days at State go faster with his positive and caring approach to the work and the mission. I could count on Dave, as could his many colleagues. He made a difference to consular work, to the people who knew him and to the greater community. I was sorry to hear of the loss of my old friend. I have Dave and his closest family in my thoughts. With deep sympathy, Martha Sardinas

We are so sorry.
Dave was a great neighbor and friend to my father, Hugh.
When he knew my father wasn't doing well, Dave shared
his fond memories with me. He was always kindhearted
to all of us.
With heartfelt condolences,
Nancy Maples

Dave, you are the whole and only reason I started my career path in IT. You gave me the opportunity to come work for you. You became more than just a manager, but my mentor and most importantly, my friend. We both graduated from GWU in the Masters Program in Information Systems Technology. And we shared so many memories, whether it was about planes, cars, fishing, guns, and work. I was hoping for one more chance to see you. And I am saddened that we didn’t get to do that. You will be missed dearly. Until we meet again, my friend.

Rest in Glory!!

Dave I am so proud to call you my friend. And so lucky you called me your friend. I will never forget the laughs and jokes we shared and all the interesting talks we had. Jaiden will cherish your friendship with him. You where our beacon of sunshine when you walked through the door at Sam's. Your smile, kind words, and your heart of gold will surely be missed. RIP my friend.

I was lucky to have a special friend like you. You inspired so many people. You always kept us (the crew at Sam's) laughing and on our toes. Ethan (my grandson) admired you and will miss going to the barbershop with you. You always had a place in your heart for everyone. Sending love and prayers to your family at this time.

In 1994, Dave and Elaine, Shelly and Esther Rosen, Ken and Linda Alms, and I took a long-weekend trip to Bermuda. Unbeknownst to their wives, the men brought identical “ugly shirts”, and wore them the first day.

Even I haven’t had a chance working for Dave directly, however, since 2009, I worked for Harris, then, Assyst supporting CA/CST CLASS Development project, I met Dave occasionally in the meeting in CA downtown. After I came onboard working for STG Inc. on 4/12/2014, two months later, you were officially retired. You always had a sense of humor, you were one of best workplace managers/leaders, a best coach who always rallied your team to accomplishing on what you wanted for your vision, you were a true leader who always leaded by example with integrity and passion on the mission with your team. My heartfelt sympathy and prayer to your family

You were my mentor, colleague, and friend for decades. You had a vision of what you wanted accomplished and made sure it happened. I have many memories of your sense of humor, barbecues at your house, the “car care clinics” in your driveway, and of course your white German shepherds. My sympathy to your family and friends.

Thank you for taking me in and allowing me to grow into what turned out to be a life changing career. Years after your retirement we still speak fondly of your unique, charismatic flair as both a work place manager and friend. I know it wasn't always easy.
And your skills in those impromptu office quarter toss games was legendary. No one ever cheated as ingeniously as you, making us all laugh while losing our loose change…you owe me a couple quarters when we meet again :)
