Weldon Earl Williams of Houston born October 22, 1925. Passed away March 12, 2017.
He is preceded in death by his wife of 52 ½ years, Ellon Frances Rowden Williams and, recently, his son Richard Earl Williams.
He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law Lisa and Scott Trimm of Austin and daughter-in-law Molly Williams of Center Point. He is also survived by grandchildren April Eastberg and Logan Trimm and great-grandson Aiden Eastberg, all of Austin.
Earl was born in Roxton, Texas, the son of Pearlie Margaret Tissier and Rupert Earl Williams. From a young age he worked to help support his family and joined the Navy on his 17th birthday, October 22, 1942. Earl served for four years as a radio dispatcher on the aircraft carrier, The Prince William. After his discharge, he continued service as a civilian radio operator on Naval Airbase, Johnston Atoll. Soon after, he settled in Dallas where he worked many jobs including ice delivery, radio DJ, cab driver and city bus driver. He regularly stopped for coffee at a diner on his bus route where he met a pretty young waitress named Ellon. They married in 1948 and started their family in Dallas. Always a hard worker, Earl was a full-time mail carrier and worked several part time jobs, as well. One of those was working nights parking cars for Allright Auto Parks. The company had plans to expand to Houston and, seeing his dedication and strong work ethic, they offered Earl full time employment and a chance to build a career in Houston. In 1957, Earl resigned from the Post Office, moved his young family and settled in Houston. He quickly moved up the ranks with Allright and became a successful executive with the company until his retirement in 1983.
Earl's family would like to thank his dedicated friends for many great years of camaraderie and weekly visits during his illness. Special thanks to Renita Escobar, Sandra Dawson and Brenda Bialas for the loving care they gave to Earl. Thanks, also, to Tina Allen, and the caring staff of Encore Caregivers for looking out for Mr. Williams and Traditions Healthcare Hospice for their support.
Visitation will be held at Memorial Oaks Funeral Home Chapel on Friday, March 17, 2017 11:45a.m. followed by a Funeral Service at 12:30pm. Interment will be at Memorial Oaks Funeral Cemetery
