In Loving Memory of Jack Williams

   In the early morning of March 30, 2021 Jackie Lee Williams (“Jack”), son of
the late Daniel Williams and Laura Jennings Williams of Matoaka, West Virginia born November 30, 1941 has passed from Hospice of The Piedmont, High Point, NC into Heaven
resulting from a long battle with a vicious illness.  Jack was 79 years old.  Jack is also reunited with his big brother, Robert “JC” Williams who was tragically lost in an automobile accident in Texas in 1964.  Jack is survived by his big sister Geraldine Williams Snapp of Newport News, Virginia. Jack is also survived by and was united in holy matrimony to the love of his
life Charlotte Beavers Williams of Princeton, West Virginia on November, 7 1961 in Sparta, NC.  They were blessed with 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 7
great-grandchildren. Surviving children: Chris Williams, and wife Paige of Greensboro, NC, David Williams, and wife Debbie of Laguna Nigel, California, Robert Williams, and wife Angela
of Summerfield, NC and Camille Williams Taylor, and husband Jeff of Trinity, NC.  Surviving grandchildren: Brittney Sylvester, Santana Williams, Erika Carrier, Jessica Delk, Zack Taylor, Daniel Chambers, Leslie Frazier and Brant Williams.  Surviving great grandchildren: Tyler Williams, Aurelia Chambers, Emery Taylor, Silas Taylor, Joanna Carrier, McKinlee Frazier and
Lincoln Taylor.  Jack was baptized and accepted The Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior at a young age at Rock Baptist Church in Matoaka, West Virginia and reaffirmed that
relationship and love for Jesus Christ with his granddaughter Jessica Delkin 2019 and more recently with grandson Zack Taylor on March 16,
2021. “Willie” (his nickname given by his fellow soldiers) served the  United States Army from 1961 to 1963. He was stationed at Fort Benning,
Georgia and abroad in Korea with the rank of E3.  As a young teenager, Jack had worked as a projectionist in the
local theatre in Matoaka, WV and after serving in the Army he returned to the theatre business and went on to become a manager at Skyway Drive Inn in Bluefield, WV.  ABC Theaters recruited Jack in the early 70’s and he managed Pocahontas Theatre in Welch, WV.  In 1973 he
was transferred to the Carolina Theatre in Greensboro, NC.  Jack became an automobile salesman at Traders Chevrolet in 1975 which was the beginning of a 25-year career where he rose into management with various dealerships.  Once retired from the automobile sales industry he spent another 10 years as a truck driver for O’Henry Office
Supply and Shelba D. Johnson Trucking.  Jack was a highly competitive, natural athlete that could play any sport very well.  But his true loves were billiards and basketball.  He was
an avid pool player that emptied the pockets of many through the years. As a youngster he learned how to play pool by hanging out at the local billiard establishment, peaking through the window day after day until he was finally invited in to play.  He loved the game of basketball and played
for his high school basketball team in Matoaka.  Although Jack was a devoted West Virginia Mountaineer fan he couldn’t resist the lure of ACC basketball and appreciated each team's coaching as well as the players.  He just loved watching a good game of basketball, to him it really didn’t matter who was playing.
   Jack was a devoted and loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and
great-grandfather that was also loved deeply and will truly be missed until we meet again.  A memorial service will be held in Mausoleum 1 at
2 p.m. Saturday, April 10, 2021 at Guilford Memorial Park, 6000 W. Gate City Blvd, followed by a celebration of his life with family and friends.  For safety, please wear masks and practice social distancing.
