November 4, 1947 - June 17, 2020
Mr. Jimmy Dillard Williams (Jim/JD), age 72, passed away Wednesday, June 17, 2020 at his residence in Grovetown, GA. He was born November 4, 1947 in Hogansville, GA to the late Emmett J. Williams, Jr. and the late Joan Williams. He was a Georgia National Guard Retiree and Navy veteran and was a member of Grove First Baptist Church of Grovetown. Before moving to Grovetown in 2015, he lived in Covington and Stone Mountain most of his adult life.
Jim was a Mason and Shriner who devoted many years to making kids smile as a Shriner Clown. He also volunteered much of his time with the Masonic Youth Organizations DeMolay and Rainbows, known to many as “Dad Williams.” He was always ready to help with meetings, teach new skills or chaperoning trips and events. He served his community as a volunteer with the American Legion. Jim enjoyed spending many weekends with his Civil War Reenactment buddies, doing reenactments, camping out and peddling leatherworks with the settlers.
He leaves behind his beautiful bride of almost 51 years, Lana Williams of Grovetown; sons and daughters in law, Jeff & Vicki Williams of Grovetown and Keith & Melanie Williams of Bristol, VA, brothers and sisters in law, Jeff & Bobbie Williams of Statesboro, GA and Doug & Shea Williams of Signal Mountain, TN, grandsons Chris Williams, Matt Williams, Liam Rutter and Jimmy McCarraher.
