Mr. Amos Williams, Jr., 74, entered eternal rest on Saturday, March 27, 2021 at his residence surrounded by his loving family under the care of Hospice Savannah.
Amos was born in Savannah, Georgia on January 11, 1947, to the late Amos Williams, Sr., and Wilhelmina Townsend Williams. Amos grew up on Darling Street in the Woodsville Community. He attended the public schools of Chatham County and was a graduate of Sophronia M. Tompkins High School. During his high school years, Amos played the French horn as a member of the Wolverine’s Marching 60’s. After graduation, he remained active with the class of 1964. Amos attended Taylor Chapel A.M.E. Church, where he accepted Christ and was an active member.
Shortly after graduating from high school, Amos became employed with National Gypsum Company of Savannah where he was a dedicated employee for over 34 years.
Amos was known as a sports enthusiast. He spent many years playing softball and coaching adult and youth sports. He coached the Woodsville A’s Softball Team, and the Woodsville A’s Midget, Pony and Colt Leagues. Amos was also the co-founder and president of the Southside Jaguars football organization. In his later years, he transitioned to bowling and became co-founder and president of TG The Original Gang bowling club. When Amos was not involved with sports, he was busy repairing things around the house, working in the yard or polishing his cars.
Amos had a wonderful sense of humor and he enjoyed reminiscing about the good ole days with family and friends. He was a hard-working man who cared for many and will be missed by all.
He leaves to cherish his memories, a loving wife, Marsha G. Williams; three daughters, Pheon (Leonard) Wells, Nicol (Robert) Thomas and Katina Hunter; one son, Jamal Williams; three grandchildren, Jalen Wells, Jarrett Wells and Ashley Hunter; one brother, Ronnie (Emma) Williams; two sisters Wilma Williams and Armethia Fields; four sisters-in-law, Eva Perry, Andrea Walker, Linda (Ben) Davie, and Gloria (Michael) Patilla; two brothers-in-law, Stanley Graham and Leonard Graham, and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
