Gregory Mark Williams
Gregory Williams, 46, of Suffolk, VA went to be with the Lord, Thursday, April 15, 2021. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Henley and Anna Mae Williams, and Frank and Doris Costen.
Greg was born April 29, 1974, to Willie and Carolyn Williams. As a child, Greg came to know the Lord as a member of Mimosa Road Bible Chapel. Greg and his family attended Nansemond River Baptist Church for many years. In 2014, they joined Liberty Live Church in Suffolk, where he served faithfully. He will be remembered fondly by the many elementary and middle school students that he taught each Sunday.
Greg was a graduate of Greenbrier Christian Academy and attended Tidewater Community College in Portsmouth, where he met Erika, to whom he was happily married to for 24 years. He was employed with Rite Aid for 25 years, but most recently was the operations manager at Coastal Industrial.
As much as he loved the Washington Redskins and his dog Pepper, there was nothing Greg loved more than his children, Matt and Riley, who will always remember his corny jokes, many pranks, and unconditional love. He will be remembered by all, for his larger than life personality and his ability to make friends wherever he went.
Greg is survived by his loving wife, Erika Williams; children, Matthew Williams and Riley Williams; his parents, Willie and Carolyn Williams; brother Chris Williams; sister, Kim Wiliams; sisters-in-law Jean Rush (Mike) and Lilian Zollars (Drew); brother-in-law, Randy Carper; nieces and nephews, Nicole, Jessica, and Monica Rush, Katelyn and Zachary Carper; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A celebration of life service will be held Monday, April 19, 2021, at 11 AM at Liberty Live Church in Harbour View officiated by Pastor Chip Dean.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made in Greg’s memory to the Portsmouth Humane Society, 4022 Seaboard Court, Portsmouth, VA 23701. Baker-Foster Funeral Home of Suffolk, VA is serving the family. Condolences may be made at RWBakerFH.com.
