Jack Williams

March 11, 2020


We celebrate the life and memory of Mr. Jack Williams whose death occurred on Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at his residence under the care of Hospice Savannah, Inc.

Mr. Jack Williams was born February 16, 1927 to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Williams in Scarboro (Jenkins County), Georgia.  He was the second eldest of eight children and a joy to all who knew him.  The Williams family moved to Savannah, Georgia when Jack was a child and he was educated by the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System.

Jack married the great love of his life, Mary Lee Holmes, in 1947. They were best friends and notable servants to the community. 

Jack was a member of Tremont Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Savannah, Georgia where he attended frequently until his health began to decline.  Jack served as a model usher in his younger manhood and was known to greet congregants with warm pleasantries.  This family man was a hardworking forklift operator for Georgia Ports Authority.  He never complained about long hours or inclement weather.  Jack was never late and faithfully worked on the ports until his retirement in 1988.

Jack, affectionately known as “Diamond Jack”, adored motorcycles.  He spent years in a motorcycle club and devoted his free time to the care of his precious Harley-Davidson bike. He also loved outings around the city and enjoyed quality soul food.  At his home filled with unconditional love, Jack Williams transcended from labor to rest on March 11, 2020.  He was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved wife, and five siblings.

Jack leaves to cherish his legacy: three children, Mrs. Jacqueline W. Foard, Mr. Reggie (Donna) Curry, and Mrs. Cynthia (Anthony) Watkins; ten grandchildren, nineteen great-grandchildren, and four great-great grandchildren.  He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Melinda W. Fews; one sister-in-law, Rev. Reatha Williams;  a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives and friends.
