Our beloved "Pawsy" (B.R. Williams), 82, passed away on Thursday, December 8, 2016 at his home in Richwood, Texas surrounded by family. B.R. was born on October 22, 1934 in Flo, Texas.
He grew up in Leon County and graduated from Buffalo High School. He married his high school sweetheart,"Mawsy", Nancy Jo Stockman Williams, who remained the love of his life. They raised six children together on Moore Street in Richwood.
He was preceded in death by his wife Nancy Jo "Mawsy" Williams, his brother, Harvey, and sisters, Beulah and Moyra Jean.
He is survived by his brother Jack and wife, Eva; sister, Viola; his children Mikey Wayne, Robbie and wife, Billie, Matt and wife, Teresa, Michelle Myers, Poke and wife, LesLie, and Monty. He is also survived by his grandchildren Michael Randall Williams, Cody Williams and wife, Topaz, Khristen Williams, Ryan Williams, Heath Myers, Matthew Williams, Heather Myers, Aubrey Williams, Madison "Hatter" Williams and wife, Elyssa, Michael Evan Williams, Mason Williams, and Monty Edgar Williams, Jr. and several great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
B.R. worked at Dow Chemical for 40 years in the Mag Cells. He impacted many lives throughout his time at Dow. He also coached his sons in baseball and worked tirelessly to provide for his family. After retiring from Dow, B.R.'s "hobby" was working. He and Mawsy moved to Buffalo, Texas for a few years and were in the ranch business at the Bottom Rung Ranch. After deciding to relocate back to Richwood to be closer to his grandchildren, he found a third career working for Precinct 1, Brazoria County, followed by a short tenure at the City of Freeport. Even after "retiring" multiple times, he continued with his hobby of "working" from his home by repairing lawn mowers, weed eaters, and small engines. His motto at this point in his life was "not to let business interfere with his pleasure." He enjoyed watching his grandchildren participate in sports and other activities. He also enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, and sharing memories of his childhood and reminiscing about his own children.
Pawsy loved God and loved people and he showed that by the way he treated others. His family will miss the prayers he offered to the Lord on their behalf. He was an active member of Brazosport Baptist Temple.
A special thanks to Michelle Sharp, Racheal Miller (Harbor Hospice), and Michelle Bradley (Angels Care Home Health) for helping the family care for Pawsy.
Visitation will be Thursday, December 15 at Restwood Funeral Home from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. A celebration of his life will be on Friday, December 16 at Restwood Funeral Home at 10 a.m. Pawsy will be laid to rest at Restwood Memorial Park immediately following services.
