James (Jim) Noah Williamson, 78, of Wilmington, NC went to be with the Lord on Friday, March 2, 2018.

Jim was born in Pikeville, KY on June 1, 1939 son of the late Lonnie and Lula Williamson. He is also preceded in death by his step-mother, Trudy Williamson; and his brothers, Kermit Williamson and Garrett Williamson.

Jim was both an Awana Leader and a member of the Gideon’s for approximately 20 years. Jim was also an active member of the Baptist Church acting as a Deacon and Trustee and working as a bus driver and a mechanic.

Jim is survived by his wife of 57 years, Eleanor Williamson; sons, Randall and his wife Patty Williamson and David and his wife Michelle Williamson; grandchildren, James and his wife Kawani Williamson, Kenny Williamson, Joe Matthews and his fiancé Rieal Shoemake, Janielle Doherty and Caitlyn Williamson; great grandchildren, Lily, Jewels, Bella, Tammy, Shay, Harland, Hazel, Logan and Elijah also survived by several nieces and nephews.

It’s not every day you get the chance to know such an extraordinary man. Jim had an immeasurable faith, integrity and strength as well as an undeniable endearment. He was truly unparalleled as a husband, father and friend. He will be sorely missed.

A Memorial Service in Kentucky will be announced at a later date.

To Eleanor and all of the Family,
I remember the very first time we met. Sam Patton wanted me to talk to you about a Baptist Church prior to moving to Vinita from Chicago. I am very thankful that we met that day. Donna and I praying for you and all of the family during this great loss on this side of heaven. I shall always cherish Jim's smile , laugh, and his friendship!
