Stanley Eugene Williams, Sr. went to be with his Lord on Friday September 20, 2019 at Genesis Morrison House in Zanesville Ohio.
Stan was born on August 30th, 1930 to the late John and Louise (Bussey) Williams. He grew up in Glenford Ohio and graduated from Glenford High School. He grew up on his family farm and was very proud of his farming heritage. He retired from McGraw-Edison and also worked as a custodian for the Lemon Bay School District in Englewood Florida. He faithfully attended Meadow Farm Church. Stan loved watching sporting events, especially the Maysville Panthers, Lemon Bay Manta Rays, the Cincinnati Reds and the Ohio State Buckeyes. Coaching was another passion of his as he loved coaching young people in not only a sport, but on how to be a better person. He loved spending the winter months in Englewood Florida.
He is survived by his wife of 35 years, Elizabeth “Betty”(Clossman) Williams, two sons, Jeffrey (Mary) Williams of Columbus and Stanley Williams Jr. of Zanesville; two daughters, Dianna (John) Finnigan of Kettering Ohio and Gale Williams-Thompson of Marysville Ohio; two step-sons Pat (Candie) Gill and Jay (Karen) Gill of Zanesville, and two step-daughters, Bethany (Rick) Campbell and Dianne Gill of Zanesville. He has numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well.
