James Alfred Williams, affectionately known as “J.W.” was born on September 13, 1952 to Jacob and Evelyn Williams in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He passed from this life at the age of 66 on Wednesday, July 3, 2019 at home.
James, a proud serviceman of the United States Army, was strong as an ox. As a go-getter, he could do anything that he put his mind to. In his leisure time, James enjoyed spending time with his family, drinking, fixing cars, watching western movies, and riding his bike.

Joan Williams both of Fort Wayne; grandchildren, Kayla Logan, Ja’Lynn, Coreon, James, Kendall, and Jacobi Williams of Fort Wayne; and Dynasti Wyatt, and Lynzie Nelson of Indianapolis.
