Ralph David Williams, 87, passed away in Lake Havasu City Feb. 7, 2018 after a brief illness with his wife and family members at his side.

David was born in San Diego. His parents were Ralph D. Williams and Jewyl G. (Stoddard) Williams, who preceded him in death. Also preceding him in death was his brother Byron (Patricia) of New Orleans.

David is survived by his wife Gilina of Lake Havasu City; his three daughters Joni Williams (Mark) and Shari Byrd (David) of Polk City, Florida, and Dee of San Francisco; two brothers, Roger (Margie) of Ontario, Oregon, and Owen (Jani) of Lake Havasu City; and three granddaughters.

David was a loving family man; he was outgoing and energetic. He had a generous nature and made friends easily wherever he lived and worked.

David’s exuberant personality will be sorely missed by his family and those who knew and loved him.

A celebration of David’s life will be planned at a later date.
