Joe "Bro. Joe" Williams Click for Condolences      Printable Version
1920 - 2006

On May 2, 1920 the chimes of time rang out the news that in the city of Forkland, Alabama Joe Williams was born, the son of the late McKinley and Tearosa Turner Williams. Brother Joe as he was affectionately called received his early education and religious training while living in Forkland. He was married to the late Maple Lee Williams, to this union two sons were born; Ronnie and Joe, Jr. In the early 1950’s he moved with his young family to Huntington, West Virginia where he united with the Calvary Baptist Church under the Pastorate of the late Reverend L.R. Walker. In 1957 he was ordained a Deacon by the Calvary Baptist Church, serving faithfully forty-nine years. Evan when his health began to fail and he was unable to attend services he always remembered his church in prayer. In addition to being a Deacon, he was the president of the Happy Harmony Chorus for twenty-five years, member of the Senior Choir and the Men’s Chorus. Although singing was his uttermost joy, he also delighted in visiting the sick and shut-in. and teaching Sunday school. He was retired from the City of Huntington and Wieler Steel. On Tuesday, morning April 11, 2006 at Cabell-Huntington Hospital the final chime rang for Brother Joe calling him to join his parents McKinley and Tearosa, his devoted wife Maple and his brother Peter Merriweather who preceded him in death. He leaves to cherish his memories: Sons Ronnie and Joe, Jr., grandson Jaun Williams of Detroit, Michigan, Sister Luewilma Merriweather of Chicago, Illinois, two brothers; Eddie (Carrie) Merriweather of Forkland, Alabama and Will (Dorothy) Merriweather of Etaw, Alabama, several nieces, nephews and a host of other relatives and friends. Services will be 1:00PM Friday, April 14, 2006 at the Calvary Baptist Church with the Reverend Franklin Murphy, Sr. officiating. Burial will follow in Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens. Friends may call from 11:00AM until the time of the service at the church.
