My Sympathies to your family. I remember your Mom and Dad attending the Altoona Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Your dad always had the most sales of sandwiches when we had fundraisers for the building of the chapel.

Uncle Donald,
I'll never forget your tenacity, You lived your life as you wanted to, and without fear. Whatever you wanted, you worked hard
for it, and you succeeded at what you tried. You faced troubles head on. In all my memories of the Williams' famiiy, you are there. You were right, you raised a wonderful family.
I knew I would miss you.........

During my youthful years it was almost yearly that Willie and Evelyn came to visit us in Illinois.It was a time that looked forward to by all concerned. Willie brought with them his work tools and would repair our sewing machine. It meant so much to visit with all my nieces and nephews and my dear sister and ofcourse Willie. We stayed up late listening to his stories of many things as he was a wise and adventurous man. Many fond memories of he will I always cherish. I know that he now rest in that place he earned during his lifetime here with family and friends. We all have fond memories of him. I do. Goodby my friend. .......Rich Simer and family
