Obituary for Richard Loran Williams

Richard “Dick” Loran Williams, age 72, of Coconut Creek, FL passed away June 27, 2017. He was born in Fort Lauderdale, FL on December 3, 1944 to Loran Oscar Williams (deceased) and Ellen Mildred Williams (deceased), also of Fort Lauderdale, FL.
He is survived by his loving wife of 49 years Sheila Lorraine Hixson Williams, daughter and son-in-law Michelle and Ernest Pappanastos, and son Timothy Williams. He is also survived by brother David Michael Williams, sister Carol Yvonne Williams Bennett and three grandchildren, Timothy Jr. and Jordyn Williams and Elsie Pappanastos. He is pre-deceased by his older brother Warren Lee Williams.
Richard was formally trained as a carpenter and craftsman and spent his entire career in this profession until his retirement in 2012. He built and renovated homes, with a special focus on creating custom woodwork and cabinetry. His masterful work can be seen at dozens of locations across a wide variety of settings throughout South Florida, including individual residences, luxury estates, yachts and commercial properties. Prior to becoming a carpenter, Richard bravely served his country in the U.S. Coast Guard.
One of Richard’s greatest passions was retreating to his waterfront residence on Grassy Lake in Lake Placid, FL and enjoying the company of friends and family. Many blissful hours were spent sitting in lawn chairs under a shade tree, with a rum and coke in hand, attempting to solve the world’s problems. In temperament, he was a calm, quiet person and his favorite pastimes included enjoying his ski boat and jet skis, barbecuing outdoors and making homemade ice cream with his lakefront neighbors, who through the years became part of the extended family.
A “Celebration of Life” memorial service is scheduled for Thursday June 29, 2017, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at All County Funeral Home, Del Lago Chapel, 131 South Lakeside Drive in Lake Worth, FL.
