On November 3rd, 1951 in South Bend, Indiana a son was born to Mr. Everett and Mrs. Elsie Lee Williams. They lovingly named him Andrew although, he was affectionally known as Lee. He was one of six children. As a youth in South Bend, Lee accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior at Grace Zion AME Church.
As a youth in South Bend, Lee attended public schools Oliver Elementary and Stuberbaker Middle School, before graduating from Riley High School.
Lee was a kind soul that would give you the shirt off his back. He moved to Houston at the age of 23 where he met and married Shirley Faye Love in 1979. To this union one child was born.
He was employed as tucker driver with JB Hunt for many years before he began working as an independent Carpenter Contractor later in life.
Lee is preceded in death by both parents, Everett and Elsie Williams; two brothers, Dellie Johnson and Everett Williams, Jr.
He leaves to cherish his memory his loving and devoted wife of 41 years, Shirley Williams.

Miss seeing my friend when I come to Texas to visit Marcus and my babies Alesha and my sweetheart Madison Williams and my dear friend Shirley Williams. I last saw Lee on Mother’s Day while I was visiting from Alabama. He was in good spirits and he was going to do my deck when they came to Alabama(Tuscaloosa)to visit .I’m glad to have know Lee and I know he’s at peace now with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sleep on dear friend till we meet again Lillie Cannon and Family
