Jack Morris Williams passed away unexpectedly/peacefully at home on December 27, 2019 in Missouri City, Texas at the age of 78.

He graduated from Gridley Kansas High School in 1959, attended KSTC for 2 years, enlisted in the USMC for 3 years (1961-1964), then went back to college and graduated from KSTC in 1967.

I remember Jack joining Schlumberger and working with him on what was probably his first project, “Heave Compensated Pit Monitoring”. We both learned a lot from each other as he was new to the oilfield and I knew little of software. It was Jack that encouraged me to learn about programming and attend the HCC to get a proper grounding in software. I owe him a lot as I spent the last 12 years or so of my career as a software developer and I have fond memories of working with him on many other projects including Advisor and Ideal. Jack was famous around Sugarland for his laugh, you could always tell that he was in the building. We had one of our bi-annual get togethers of some old timers from Schlumberger this week and raised our glasses to Jack who will be missed by all.

Jack to me represented the qualities of hard work, integrity, and close attention to the field’s needs. He was truly a Schlumberger legend in the real time drilling software arena.

I will miss you buddy.

Uncle Jack your passing was so sudden I never had a chance to say goodbye! You were always there for my family when I was growing up, and I have great memories of you and Donna getting together with my parents after we (kids) went to bed! Rest In Peace, I will see you on the Other Side.
