Alfred "AL" Williams

December 21, 1931 - February 5, 2018

Alfred "AL" Williams, a longtime Camas, Washington resident, born in Neosho, Missouri, passed away Monday, February 5, 2018, at his residence in Sisters, Oregon. He is survived by his wife, Barbara "Joan" Lilley-Williams, his children, Tammy Harrison (Scott), Terri Chiodo (Robert), Rodney Williams (Christy), Randy Williams and Ricky Williams (Nancy), as well as his grandchildren, Felicia Harrison, Kristina Williams, Colton Williams, Kyler Williams, Sean Narhi, Chad Narhi, Robbie Williams, David Williams, Jr., Nova Williams, Brian Williams and Danny Williams, Angie Williams and Nicole Williams, along with many great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews, and his step­children, Shelly Lighty, Michael Lighty and Tim Lighty, step-grandchildren, Sydney Mills, Christopher Lighty, Sasha Lighty Jacobs and Sablahn Lighty. He was preceded in death by his former wife of 43 years, Ruth Elaine Williams, and his son David Williams, of Othello, Washington. He also was preceded in death by his parents, Bessie and Roy Williams and four brothers and one sister.

Al proudly served as a Sergeant in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. Boating was a passion, and Al belonged to the Vancouver Yacht Club for many years. He was a member of the 19th Bombardment Group and enjoyed travelling to many of the Reunions held in various parts of the United States, and was also a member of the VFW in Camas, Washington. He was employed at the Camas papermill for 30 years as an additive supervisor.

His real joy was being with his family, extended family and his dogs. He enjoyed bicycling, walking, motorhoming, music (all types, and especially classical music), history, dancing, gardening, watching TCM and western movies, talking about his military service, farming, building homes, meeting and visiting with his friends.

Services will be held at the Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration in Sisters, Oregon on March 10, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. and a military burial at the Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon, the date to be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the American Cancer Society.
