George Thomas Williams

Nov 24 1924 – Jun 13 2021

George Williams, 96, of Excelsior Springs, died June 13, 2021 after a long and very interesting life. He was born to George and Clara Williams in Waco, TX and was a Navy veteran of World War II, enlisting when he was 17. He married the love of his life, Dorothy Martin, in Waco in 1947 and they had 71 wonderful years together before her death in 2018.

Enjoying a challenge, George had several careers as a preacher, a police officer, an engineer at an aviation manufacturer, and communications director at Union Pacific Railroad, from which he retired in 1986. He and Dorothy moved to Excelsior Springs in retirement, bred Appaloosa horses, and established and sold two photography studios, providing wedding memories to many local couples. He also was a skilled musician, playing several instruments, and performing at church, at nursing homes, and with a local country music band.

George was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Dorothy; his daughter, Lynna; and his sister, Audrey.

He is survived by his son, Marty (Terrie) Williams; grandson, Devon (Lisa) Fulton; and great grandchildren, Alexander Fulton and Bridgette Fulton; along with many dear friends.

Arrangements in care of Bross & Spidle Funeral Home, Excelsior Springs.
