December 15, 1960 - August 18, 2019
This past weekend our son, Franklin Dan (Danny) Williams left his earthly home to be in his forever home with his Heavenly Father. Danny was born in Lawton, OK 58 years ago. After moving to Texas, when he was three years old, he became a true Texan. He went to kindergarten at All Saints Episcopal Church where he saw the University of Texas tower and sang The Eyes of Texas most every day. Not only was he a Texan, he loved the University of Texas. Danny went to Travis Heights and Cunningham Elementary Schools, Bedichek Junior High, and Crockett High School. In his younger life, he loved all sports, especially baseball, golf, bowling, and football. As he grew older, baseball and golf were his sports of choice. After graduation from high school, he became a carpenter's helper working up to being a finishing carpenter. In his 30's he went to Texas State Technical Institution graduating as a machinist but carpenter work was what he loved. Danny was very talented with his carpentry because he enjoyed detail work. He did building projects for his parents, his sister, and friends which we cherish even today. He was kind to others and loved giving gifts to his family some of which he made. He invited Jesus into his life when he was 11 or 12 years old. Hyde Park Baptist Church was a huge part of his earlier life. He was involved in Sunday School, Sunday Evening Classes plus mission programs and choir. He especially enjoyed Camp Travis. Danny is survived by his parents, Clovis and Sue Williams, his sister, Julie, and her husband, Sam Adams, nieces and nephews, Lacy and her husband, Judah Owens, Ben, Emma, and Andrew Adams. Also, he is survived by aunts, uncles, and cousins. Danny loved his family. He loved his grandparents who are no longer living. He will be greatly missed, but his family knows he is at rest in our Heavenly Father's Hands. Should friends desire, contributions may be sent to 1) Hyde Park Baptist Church, 3901 Speedway, Austin TX 78751 with the designation of Youth Programs or Benevolence Fund or 2) Salvation Army. A memorial service for Danny will be held on Monday, August 26 at 1 pm in Christ Chapel, Hyde Park Baptist Church.
