Carl O. Williams, Jr., 83, entered eternal rest on Sunday, January 29, 2017 in Corpus Christi, TX. He was born on October 18, 1933 in Missouri. He is preceded in death by his son, Joe Bob Williams; mother, Mary Hellums and brother James Williams.

He was a devoted husband to his loving wife of 60 years, Eula Mae Williams. He is also survived by his children, Billy Williams, Betty (Steve) Colbert and her children Amy, Kari, Julie and Stacie; John (Angela) Williams and their children Brittany and Lauren; and Carl V. (Natalie) Williams and his children Madeline, Carson and Logan. He also has 8 great-grandchildren whom he adored.

Carl proudly served his country in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. He later made countless lifelong friendships through his 60 plus years working in road construction. Carl was highly respected in his field and to quote him directly "hauled more dirt in the cuffs of his pants and his ears than most people see in a lifetime." A die hard race fan, he loved going to watch the races at any and all tracks. Loved by anyone he met, he will truly be missed by all who knew him.
