Gary Rondo Williams
2/18/1936 – 1/6/2018
Thanks to my family and friends for sharing with me your love, time and yes, your patience.
I was born into a family of loving parents and wonderful grandparents. And I was raised in the atmosphere of classical music and all that is good and meaningful.
I’ve had three wives (not all at once), five wonderful children, four stepdaughters, a great bunch of grandchildren, a handful of great grandchildren, and a life that’s been full of love, music, sports, travel, history, geography, and a love of God and my fellow man.
As a salesman throughout my life, I’ve enjoyed meeting and communicating with the “best of what the world has to offer” – friends.
So, goodbye for now. See you later friend. I did it my way.
Gary served his Country in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He was a talented musician and was recruited to serve in the U.S. 3rd Div. military band in Seoul, Korea. Playing from 75 to 95 engagements a month, the band played for decorations presentations, reviews and field ceremonies. In addition, the band split into combos to play for evening troop recreation.
He loved playing golf, fishing, boating, and basketball. He volunteered with the U. of U. Running Utes Pep Band.
Gary is preceded in death by his mother and father, LaPriel Barney Webb and Rondo James Williams, son Don Williams, and his beautiful and loyal friend of fifteen years Sugar. He is survived by his wife Carolyn Elaine Williams and their dog Ginger Snap; brother, Victor Charles Webb, brother James M. Williams (Joan), Don’s children, Nicole and Alexander Williams; children: Mark (Susanne) Williams and their children, Sydnie (Marty) Kuhre and their children and grandchildren, Shelley (Scott) Roberts and their children, Steve (Kim) Williams and their children; and stepdaughters: Natalie (Nick Anderson) Mieremet, Melanie (Ronnie) Pirovino and their children, Carrie (Justice) Brown and their children, Kellie Mieremet.
What ever happened in his life, good or bad, he never forgot to pray and build a close relationship with his Heavenly Father.
