Obituary

ROBERT LEE WILLIAMS was born on September 20, 1945 in Washington DC. He was the son of the late Bessie Beatrice Robinson and James Edward Williams. Robert was one of five, two of which have preceded him in death; Alton Williams and Harry Williams. Diane Williams and Rudolph Smith are his remaining siblings from this family unit. Unfortunately Robert never had the opportunity to meet his Father as he was tragically killed in an accident just months before his birth.
ROBERT was educated in the Virginia School System by attending the Virginia School for Colored Deaf and Blind Children. ROBERT relocated to Pennsylvania and held many different jobs throughout his lifetime as he wanted to work and made every effort to maintain sound employment. In 1974 while residing in the Philadelphia area he was introduced to the Love of his life, Elizabeth Juanita Smith, through Gilbert and Virginia Brown who remain good friends to this day. They were married on April 19, 1975 and they were blessed with two children Roberta and Garland. ROBERT loved his wife and his family and he made sure everyone knew they belonged to him. He was so proud of them all.
ROBERT was a fun loving man who enjoyed making people laugh and was the life of any family function. He loved watching movies, dressing up and taking pictures of himself with family and friends. These pictures have been source of encouragement to our family during these difficult days.
ROBERT and Juanita attended All Souls Church for the Deaf in Philadelphia before it closed its doors.
ROBERT leaves to cherish his memory his devoted and loving wife of 44 years Juanita; two children Roberta (Kevin) Shields and Garland Williams; One Sister Diane and One Brother Rudolph; Six Grandchildren Kristen, Chase, Kevin Jr. and Noah Shields and Selest and Gianna Williams. A Father in Law, Joseph E. Smith; One Sister in law, Susan Mills and one Brother in law Joseph (Bernice) Smith. He leaves a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends whose lives he touched.
