On Sunday, May 30, 2021, Don Golan Williams of Farmers Branch, Texas passed away peacefully at the age of 93. Don was born on March 4, 1928 in Detroit, Michigan to Golan Earnest Williams and Juanita Vogan. He proudly served in the United States Air Force as an aerial photographer and was honorably discharged in April 1949.
Don had a lifelong passion for photography, flying his yellow Piper Tri-Pacer airplane, eating crab legs with his family; and he had a sincere dislike for listening to commercials on TV.
He is survived by his children Jim Williams, Jason Williams and wife Courtney, Kim Williams and Jana Burt. He will forever be remembered by his grandchildren Haley, Chandler, Cutter, Tyler, Austin, Curtis, Casey, Christina, Corey, Lindsey, Christopher, Michael, Keri, Lara and numerous great-grandchildren; sister Sherrell Conjemi, and nieces Tammy and Karen. Don was preceded in death by his parents, his loving wife of 37 years, Nancy Umbarger Williams, and his son, Gene Williams.
Don was a true patriarch of his family and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
