Raymond "Chawee" Lewis Williams passed away peacefully in his daughter's home on Friday morning, August 4, 2017, after a courageous battle with congestive heart failure. He was 74 years old. Beloved husband of the late Ella Duncan Williams of over 42 years. Loving father of Christina Plaisance (Eric), April Stock (Steven), and Daniel Williams. Grandfather of Erica Plaisance, Christian Plaisance, Justin Stock, and Preston Stock. Son of the late Edward and Eunice Williams. Also survived by his brothers and sisters and a host of nieces and nephews. Raymond was a native of New Orleans, and has been a resident of Waggaman for over 46 years. He proudly served his country in the United States Army National Guard, and retired as a Welding Foreman after over 30 years of dedicated service from Northrop-Grumman Avondale Shipyard. He was an avid Saints fan and loved to watch boxing. His keen sense of humor always sparked laughter, and generosity will forever inspire us. He was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, and he will be greatly missed.
