Mr Williams will be missed. I remember him teasing me at all the sleepovers with Anita. My thoughts are with all the family.
I learned so much from him, he wasn’t just my employer, he was my friend. There is not a day goes by that I don’t think of Howard Williams and the advice he gave me. He will always be missed!!
Anita so sorry for your loss. I was in Arkansas and stopped by the office but no one was in I would like to have visited with him one last time.
He was the greatest man I had the pleasure of knowing. He had so much knowledge about slot of things that’s because he had been through a lot of things in his 91 yrs I’m most definitely a better person have knowing him and having him in my life nobody ever really takes a second look at me but he did ,I met that man at 430 in the morning 12 yrs ago and was in his office 20 mins and he hired me to work with Barry where I stayed working for him for many yrs I’m blessed for the time I got to spend with him !!
