Mr. Millard Fillmore Williams, Sr., age 88, passed away Thursday, January 7, 2021 at the Augusta University Medical Center. Private funeral services were held Tuesday, January 12, at the Chapel of Low Country Cremation and Burial with honors rendered by the US Army. Interment followed in the Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Glennville.
Mr. Williams was born in Manassas, Georgia, on December 27, 1932, to Guy Morgan and Bertha Mae Stubbs Williams. He served as a Master Sergeant in the United States Army in Korea, and after an honorable discharge, lived in Savannah before returning to Tattnall County, where he met and married the love of his life, Christine Anderson, on April 16, 1954. They were married for 67 years, and lived in Swainsboro for 50 years. Mr. Williams worked in construction and maintenance, and was employed with Husqvarna for 28 years. In his free-time, he enjoyed woodworking and yard work, but his passion was playing the bass guitar in church, which he said God taught him to play. Mr. Williams loved to praise God this way. His biggest joy came from his family.
He is survived by his wife of 67 years, Christine Anderson Williams of Swainsboro; children, Millard "Buddy" Fillmore Williams Jr. (Rita) of Sevierville, TN and Corbin Michael Williams (Lea Ann) of Swainsboro; grandchildren, Kevin (Christine) Williams of Sevierville, TN, Candace Williams Hughey (Josh) of Sevierville, TN, Brandon Williams (Sara) of Augusta, Morgan Jersey (Brittany) and Macy Fagler of Swainsboro; 7 great-grandchildren, Ty Williams, Max Williams, Evin Hughey, Ccollins Hughey, Allie Hughey, Dani Hughey, and Noah Williams; siblings, David (Richie Dean) Williams of Springfield and Dorothy Deloach of Statesboro; several nieces and nephews, and several sister-in-laws that he loved and always considered his "sisters".
