December 31, 1925 - January 25, 2020
David Lee Williams, 94, of Excelsior Springs passed away Saturday, January 25, 2020, in Richmond, MO.
Visitation will be Thursday, January 30, 2020, from 10 am-11 am at Hidden Valley Funeral Home of Excelsior Springs, followed by the funeral at 11:00 am. Burial will be at Crown Hill Cemetery.
Mr. Williams was born December 31, 1925, in Fishing River Township, MO. He is the son of the late David and the late Eunice (Tarwaters) Williams. He married Willeta May Stark on December 14, 1944 at Excelsior Springs, Missouri.
David was a quiet and shy boy until he got older. But then he always had stories to tell. He had a dry sense of humor, and would often catch you off-guard. Sometimes he was hilarious and didn’t even mean to be. His family remembers big family picnics and dinners at their house. David loved the outdoors, and always wanted to be outside where he could enjoy his favorite activities including fishing, mushroom hunting, and gardening. He would proudly talk of the big fish he caught, the amount mushrooms found, but was proudest of his carpentry and the house he had built for he and his wife. David was a hard-working, family-oriented man that provided well for his wife and family.
He is survived by his wife: Willeta May (Stark) Williams; two nieces: Linda Shoemaker, and Samantha “Sue” (Bryce) Craven; and three nephews: Roy Williams, Robert (Mariana) Williams, and Dennis (Nicole) Williams.
David was preceded in death by his three sons: David Lee Williams, Jr, John L Williams, and Glenn “Eddy” Williams; two siblings: Mary Jane Harris, and Darle R Williams; and nephew: Donald Lee Williams.
