Richard Billy Williams, born January 17, 1936 in New Orleans, Louisiana, to the late Willie and Lucille (Campbell) Williams, died on November 3, 2012 after a long battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis. He was a long time resident of the Dixonville Community, Richard retired from Chemstrand.

He was a member of the Berrydale Baptist Church, the Dixonville Fire Department, the Red Lodge Masonic Lodge #97, The Scottish Rite, the Hadji Shrine Temple and Jay #208 Order of the Eastern Star.

His “mailbox” money went to help many good causes!

He is survived by his son, Rick; granddaughter, Ashley (Joshua) Stringer; great-granddaughter, Sophia Stringer, and great-grandson, Calleb Stringer of Groten, CN.; sister, Maxine of California; sister-in-law, Amanda (Kevin) Thorne of Tennessee, and many caring family members and friends.
