Paul Williams
Lester Lackey & Sons Funeral Home

“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course. I have kept the faith.”

2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)

Mr. Paul Williams was born on Dec. 8, 1941, to Mr. and Mrs. Richard (Lena Wyatt) Williams in Madison.

He received his early education in the Morgan County School System. He joined the work force at Restaurant Supplies and after working there a couple of years, he opened his own restaurant. He worked and cooked at Wyatt’s Diner for many years until his health failed.

He was a quiet and a gentle man who loved his family and Wallace Grove Baptist Church.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richard (Lena Wyatt) Williams; brothers Richard Williams Jr., Horace Williams, Perry Williams and Bush Williams; and sister Mary Hodges. 

He leaves to mourn his passing, two daughters, Ms. Mary (Shell) Bolden and Mrs. Janice (Joseph) Reed; sisters Mrs. Betty Marshall and Mrs. Frances (John) Avery; brothers Mr. Roosevelt Williams and Mr. Wilson Williams; two granddaughters, Ms. Tameka Bolden and Ms. Tinya Bolden; a special uncle, Mr. Oscar Wyatt; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

A homegoing service began at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, July 15, 2018, at Wallace Grove Baptist Church in Rutledge with Evangelist Edith Sandoval as the pastor and eulogist. Burial followed in the church’s cemetery, and a meal was served in the church fellowship hall.

Family and friends served as floral bearers and pallbearers.

The family of the late Mr. Paul Williams wishes to express its sincere thanks for the many condolences, flowers and other acts of kindness shown during their bereavement. May God bless each and every one of you.
