David Norman Williams, 66, of Valley Mills, Texas passed away Wednesday, October 19, 2022 at Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in Temple, surrounded by his family. Funeral service will be 11AM, Friday, October 28, 2022 at First Methodist Church of Waco's Main Campus at 4901 Cobbs Drive with Rev. Gaylan Turner and Pastor Ryan Barnett officiating under the direction of Grace Gardens Funeral Home. Interment will be held at a later date in Madison, South Dakota.
David was born November 29, 1955, in Madison, South Dakota, to Raymond and Lavonne Williams, and grew up on the family farm. He graduated from Madison High School. In the early 80's, while his oldest brother, Bob, was attending Baylor University, David made a trip to come visit him and decided to stay in Waco. He then attended TSTC where he learned computer programming. It was while working as a programmer for Waco Communications that he met his love, Carol. They married and eventually put down roots building their family home in Valley Mills and raising 2 sons. This past September, they celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.
While working at Waco Communications, the owner opened a kite shop inside and David managed it, as well, and became a kite enthusiast; attending many local kite festivals and events. Because of his knowledge of computers, people would bring their computers to him for repairs. After he left Waco Communications, he worked for Valley Mills ISD as Tech Coordinator for 10 years. He then worked for Esquire Fire and Safety until January 2019. David also served as a Boy Scout Master in Valley Mills for several years. On weekends, he enjoyed watching tv and some football games with their dog, Pepper, in his lap. He enjoyed traveling with his wife to Colorado, New Mexico and trips back to South Dakota to visit family.
David was preceded in death by his parents, Raymond and Lavonne Williasms; his son, Jonathan Williams; a brother, Don Williams and sister-in-law Katherine; sister-in-law, Frances Williams; and two nieces, Melinda Sogaard and Teresa Bennett.
He is survived by his wife, Carol; son, Caleb Seith and wife, Stacey, of Robinson; grandchildren, Zoey Hillis and husband, Matthew; Austin Seith and Harper Rose; brother, Bob, of Missouri; sister, Barb Sogaard and husband, Tom, of South Dakota; sister, Dorine Bennett and husband, Danny, of South Dakota; sister, Carol Smith of South Dakota; father-in-law, George Knight of Robinson; sister-in-law, Linda Van Slycke of Waco; sister-in law, Cindy Colley and husband, Mike of Waco; sister-in-law, Vickie Blassingame and husband, Roger of Clifton and a host of nieces and nephews in Texas, South Dakota, Montana, Nebraska and Missouri.
