Kenneth Williams Obituary

Kenneth Williams (Kenny-Ken) was born in Dalton Georgia on January 8th, 1936, to Edwin Williams and Edna Opal (Morgan) Williams. With our crushed hearts, also knowing he is with our Lord and Savior, Ken passed away peacefully at Hospice House in Poland, on Monday October 30th 2023.  

 Ken grew up in Dalton, Georgia and moved to Ohio in 1955. Ken married Patricia (Cleary) Williams on May 18th, 1957.  They raised their three girls in Youngstown, Ohio. In March 2006, they moved to Columbiana, Ohio to be closer to their three daughters and their families.

Ken retired as a Staff Representative with the United Steelworks of America.  Ken loved to golf and to play pool.  Ken took such good care of his wife until he reluctantly could not do it anymore.

Surviving Ken are his wife, Patricia (Cleary) Williams; three daughters, Debbie McGarry, Lisa (Dave) Martin, Patricia (Terry) Brown; grandchildren; Daniel (Erin Schomer) Lundeen of Phoenix AZ, Erin (McGarry) Bosela and Jonathon “Mackie” McGarry of Columbiana, Rachel Bernard and Sarah Bernard of Youngstown and T.J. (KC) Hiznay of Columbiana, Craig (Lauren) Martin of Salem, Halee (Jay) Valliere of Winchendon, MA, Megan (Bob) Ferrall of Mogadore and Kenneth (Denise) Brown of Salem.

He is also survived by great grandchildren Deianera Dixon of Raliegh NC, Rayonna Dixon, Alex Virola, Mariah Morales all of Youngstown, Drennen Bosela of Columbiana, Evie Ferrall of Mogadore, Benjamin Lundeen and Lucy Lundeen both of Phoenix, Reese Bosela of Columbiana, Serayah James of Youngstown, Lincoln and Dennis Brown and Brynn and Cash Martin all of Salem, Tilly Valliere of Winchendon, MA; great great grandchildren, Ava and A.J. Virola of Youngstown; he also leaves brother-in-law, Lawrence Stocks of Dalton, GA; nieces Judy (Mark) Russ, Stephanie (Sam) Bennett, and nephew, Larry Stocks; as well as several nieces and nephews-in-law and  several close friends.

Ken was preceded in death by his parents, his siblings, Dolores Buches, Gerald Williams, and Judy Stocks, a nephew, Christopher Waterman and grandson-in-law Gregory Bosela.  Ken over the years lost many dear friends, too numerous to mention.

Ken was a constant source of love and support, and as best as he could he continued to live like that. Ken definitely left his mark, and we will carry that with us forever.
