I had the pleasure of being his wife’s student while I was in jr high. My dad used to be their Schwans man, where I got my first job at his greenhouse, I loved every moment while I was working for him. Thanks for giving me my first job and may you Rest In Peace with your lovely wife!

Mr. Williams was my Jr. High science teacher who let me help him in the greenhouse. He would give me some flowers and said take these home to your mom. He was really nice.

My condolences, prayers of comfort for your family. He was a very respected & great teacher, he truly inspired my love of reading, plants and all things Science.
Dorothy Criswell left a message on September 26, 2022:
A great teacher, one I always respected. He always let me get away with reading novels in his class as long as I could answer his questions correctly in class and pass his tests. And those tests! Who could forget the Peanut Butter And Jelly tests! He seriously made science fun and interesting, quite the challenge considering the age group he taught! I hope he's resting easy and pain free in his favorite brown chair. A legend at Paradise Perry, for certain!

Today, before I knew Mr. Williams had passed, I was thinking of the time he took me fir a ride in his cesna airplane. He give alit if kids opportunities to work. In school and at the greenhouse, he expected us to do our best.

My deepest condolences. I started working in his greenhouse at the age of 13. Hated it- but my parents thought it was a good idea. I now have a huge garden and I start most of my plants indoors. Thanks, Mr Williams! :) You were a wonderful teacher and mentor.
