Byron W. Williams, 83, formerly of Rock St., Negaunee, passed away Friday afternoon, January 8, 2021 at Eastwood Nursing Center.

Byron was born November 20, 1937 in Negaunee and was raised by William and Pearl Brailey. He attended Negaunee schools and was a lifelong area resident. He worked many years as a custodian for the City of Negaunee.

Mr. Williams was a member of Calvary Baptist Church, Negaunee, where he was active in the building of the church, and served as an usher, greeter, custodian and sang in the choir for several years. Byron was also active in the Negaunee Senior Center and sang in the Negaunee Male Chorus.

In his spare time, Byron loved gardening, traveling and spending time with his family. He was an avid fan of the Negaunee Miners basketball teams and enjoyed traveling to Wisconsin to attend Milwaukee Brewers baseball games, and was a big fan of the Green Bay Packers! Go Pack!!

Surviving are his daughter, Carla (Brad) Jackson of Edina, MN; two brothers, Jack (Cookie) Bailey of Racine, WI and Paul Williams of Torrance, CA; two brothers-in-law, Albert (Marie) Carlson of Ishpeming and Bob Jacka of Negaunee; two sisters-in-law, Patricia Carlson of Mesa, AZ and Carol ‘C.J.’ Loftus of Chandler, AZ; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Darlene (Carlson) Williams on November 16, 2006; foster parents, William ‘Bill’ and Pearl Bailey; a brother, Robert Williams; and five sisters: Phyllis Jacka, Donna ‘Kathleen’ Mullins, Marlene Williams, Janet Tremethick and Mary June Williams

Public services will be held at a later date.

The family will like to thank the staff at the Eastwood Nursing Center for their incredible care and support over the years while Byron was a resident. You made a difference.
