Mr. Williams was born September 7, 1950 in Monroe, LA and passed from this life on July 8, 2018 in Willis, TX at the age of 67. JR served his country in the Army as a combat medic during the Vietnam War. He loved the outdoors and had a passion for hunting and fishing, and that is where he said he felt at peace the most. He took his most pride in his family and his love for each and every one them. JR was the type of man that would literally give you the shirt off of his back and not expect one thing in return. He retired from being a professional truck driver for over 40 years.
He is preceded in death by grandfather, James Robert Williams; his father, James Robert Williams Jr.; his mother, Rebecca Obey; one brother, David Williams; his first wife, Cynthia, and two children, Samantha and Christopher; his late wife, Patricia; and his son at heart, John Frost.
