Williams, Paul C., age 72, of Franklin, went home to be with the Lord on May 16, 2017.
He was born May 21, 1944 in Frenchburg, Kentucky to the late James and Gertrude “Trudy” (Wills) Williams.
Paul was a longtime employee at Logan Long Paper Mill in Franklin, Ohio. He accepted his call to the ministry later in life to go full time as Pastor and Evangelist. A big part of Paul’s life was travelling with his family as the William’s Family Singers. His recordings have blessed many lives and were a significant part of his ministry. He had a great love for all music especially Bluegrass.
Paul spent his entire life putting others’ needs before his own and freely gave of his time and energy to help others when they needed it most through benefit singings, food pantries and counseling. Paul’s non- judgmental approach to people opened many doors for him to minister to others. Paul is probably most remembered for his light hearted, joyful outlook on life. His joy and his peace were firmly rooted in his relationship with God.
In addition to his parents, Paul was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 26 years, Patti Williams. He leaves to cherish his memory his 2 sons, Todd Williams, Rodney Williams and his wife, Tracy; 4 grandsons, David Williams and his wife, Madison, Dylan Williams, Logan Williams, and Luke Williams; his 2 sisters, Virginia Neal, and Shelby Kirkpatrick, numerous nieces , nephews and special friends.
