He was the son of the late Floyd Williams and Betty Wilder Williams, born on April 9, 1926 in Baltimore, MD.


George proudly served our country in the United States Army from 1945-1946. He was affectionately known to many as Professor. George worked hard his entire life at various places and retired from the Concord Hotel in 1998 as a manager. He enjoyed being home, watching Western movies, Matlock, reading his Bible but most importantly playing the piano. He loved to look at back at pictures and remember the good old days.
