Later the church group under Al’s leadership, the group became many members! Al, so many laughs and good times, what a fabulous friend, overall great person!

  7. Condolences to the entire family. Brother was my cousin (Al) and was a great loving person. He will be missed . Sending prayers to all .

  8. Al and I became good friends while living in Florida. Every Wednesday at noon ( not a minute earlier or a minute later) if you knew Al,we would go for a couple beers with a group of friends. He became know as 2 o’clock Al because he always reminded us that he needed to be home by 2 because Gail was cooking lunch. We had so many laughs and always looked forward to those outings. Al was just a great person full of joy to be around. You will be missed my friend.

  9. to the Williams family,
    My husband, (Bob Perry) and Al were childhood friends from the Sabin Point area and grew up together. In our teen years, we often double-dated, and Al served as an usher at our wedding. He was one of my favorites among Bobby’s friends. Bobby will always think of him as “Brother” Williams. Rest in peace brother until we meet again!

    Bob and Valerie Perry

  10. To Buddy, Heidi and Susan and the rest of the Williams family, my thoughts are with you all as you mourn your Dad. I affectionally called him Pop which is what we decided would be a good name for him. He was quite the jokester. He pulled the “pull my finger” trick on me the first time I met him and of course I fell for it. Him and Gail were like my second set of parents. Always treating me like as part of their family. I will always be grateful for the time I spent with them. I’ll miss you Pop. Love Wendy
