Condolences to the Williams Family: Many of you probably don't know me, my name is George Dave and I live in Louisville, Kentucky.
I grew up on Long Street with all the Williams family under the supervision of Mr Charlie and Ms Roxie at Union Hill Baptist Church. We were family. I loved all those guys and miss now tremendously. Everybody had a nick name, Hammer, Donut, Chili, Wee Wee, Boo Boo, Kookie ,etc. that's the way it was. Chili was a good person, very giving and caring. I assure you that not only will he be missed by the immediate family, but by all of those that he touched in his life.

I remember Chili from when I attended Chattanooga State 20 years ago. He was the type of guy you couldnโ€™t help but smile every time you said his name. He was a funny guy for sure; I liked listening to his rants. Prayers to the family. Chili will not be forgotten.

Chili was my only daddy. I formed a bond with my biological father when I was 20. Chili will always be my daddy. My grandmother Nanny loved Chili. For the people who knew Nanny knew that she always spoke her mind. THANK YOU FOR LOVING ME WALTER WILLIAMS! I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU!
