Frank Williams Sr. was born on October 6, 1934 to the late Eddie Williams Sr. and Rosa Dumas Williams in Garyville, Louisiana in St. John the Baptist Parish where he was raised. Frank accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior and was baptized June 1948 at the True Light Baptist Church in Garyville, LA
Frank graduated from Fifth Ward High School. He would later enlist in the United States Marine Corps, where he proudly served his country from 1956-1961.
On September 26, 1959 he married the late Gwendolyn B. Williams. From this blessed union, they had two loving heartbeats Lawanda Jenise and Frank Jr. In the mid 1960’s Frank and Gwendolyn with Lawanda in tow would become active members of Greater Bright Morning Star Baptist Church, pastored then by the late Pastor Lloyd A.

Frank and Gwendolyn would share forty-one years of marriage, before death would part them and God would call her home February 2001. To know Frank Williams, was to love, admire and adore him. He loved God, and he knew God loved and cared for him. One of his favorite songs he always longed to hear was “Order My Steps.” He was soft spoken but always the consummate communicator.

When his health began to fail he would now be in the need of care, and Brenda met each and every challenge his illness would bring until death parted them August 7th, 2018.
