Gerry was born on August 19, 1944 to Russell and Violet Kathleen (Thomas) Williams in Duncan, OK. He graduated from the University of Texas El Paso with a bachelor’s degree.

Gerry worked for John Morrell Meat Company and transferred to Lubbock from Phoenix in August 1988 and worked eleven more years before retiring in 1999. He enjoyed traveling, and old western movies. There was not a crossword puzzle that he could not do. His sense of humor was a force to be reckoned with and he will be missed.

Survivors include his wife, Verlene Williams; daughters, Sherry Kaye Stephens and husband, Billy Dale of Lubbock; Lisa Michelle Schindele and husband; Roger of Cape Girardeau, MO; grandchildren, Stephanie (Jonathan) Rector, Benjamin (Keely) Stephens, Christopher (Lindsey) Schindele, Josh (Deanna) Schindele, and Emily Stephens; 5 great-grandchildren; sister, Kaye Collins and husband, Lane; along with two nephews and one niece.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and an infant sister, Lisa.


The family of Gerry M. Williams would appreciate contributions to be given to the Upland Mission (a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church), in his memory.

    verlene we are so sorry for your loss. Gerry was a mess but one of my favorite cousins. I can just hear him joking around and laughing. Wish so much I could be there today. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Take pictures for me. Would so much like to see Kaye. Haven’t seen her in so long . Give her a hug for me. Love you Verlene.

  11. This is James Hitt and just sick of the news that you lost Gary this week. You only knew us as his yard boys, but what a joy to get to know and just to visit with him each time we came to your house. Such a smart and funny man with a huge personality. He will be missed by the Hitt boys that mowed his yard. Let us know if you need anything in time of loss. Praying for your healing. James, Lisa and sons.
