Greg was born to Danny and Joyce Williams on May 12, 1945 in Lubbock, Texas. Greg grew up in the Lakeview community and graduated from Floydada High School. He continued on to receive an engineering degree from Texas Technological College. He married Linda Sue Montgomery on September 2, 1967 in Lubbock, Texas.
Greg is survived by his loving wife of 50 years, Linda Williams; daughter, Shelley Fitzgerald and husband, Vince; son, Matthew Williams and wife, Jessica; daughter, Sarah Cuneo and husband, Ryan; four grandchildren, Brock and Bron Fitzgerald; and Emerson and Sawyer Williams; and sisters, Cynthia Chambers, Roxanne Brismee-Lloyd and Nancy Lloyd.
He was preceded in death by his adoring grandparents, Lee and Bertie Keesee; and parents, Fred and Joyce Lloyd.
Greg was an incredibly intelligent man and built a successful business, Texas Tool & Equipment, in Lubbock, Texas. His hobbies included vintage racing, metal work, softball and fishing. Greg always worked hard, never buckled under pressure and spoke deliberately. Greg was the consummate husband, father and friend. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
Greg was diagnosed with kidney cancer in December 2011. He fought an amazing battle and words cannot describe the amount of strength he displayed during his fight with cancer over the last six years. Greg’s family is comforted in the knowledge that he is healed of his pain by our Heavenly Father.
Greg will be laid to rest in a private committal service in Robert Lee, Texas.
