Carl was preceded in death by his parents, his special uncle and aunt, George and Ora Mae
Potter, and brother, Terrill Wayne Williams. He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Dorothy Allen

Pioneer and worked for the Bell System and AT&T for 37 years. Carl had a love for nature,
whether hunting, fishing, golfing, or just watching animals from his porch.
