Throughout his life, Mr. Williams was a prolific artist, returning from world travels with books of sketches, many of which he developed into artistic renditions using various mediums.

He is survived by his wife, Wendy Hyler Williams; his brother, Art Williams; his children, Penny Hamilton and Roben Latham; six grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
