Fred Williams

Fred Williams Fred Williams passed away peacefully on January 19, 2021, after a long battle with cancer and recent complications from COVID-19.

He was a warrior until the end. Fred grew up in Kansas and was a proud alumnus of Kansas State University; however, Columbia, South Carolina, was considered home. Fred loved to travel and had a passion for volunteering and charity work throughout the community. He never met a stranger and dedicated thousands of selfless service hours with his trademark smile. He genuinely engaged with every person he met, asking thoughtful questions and making you feel like the most important person in the room. Fred was preceded in death by his parents, Herman and Thelma Williams; sister, Patricia “Pat” Zarger, and brother, Roland “Rod” Williams.

He leaves behind many friends and family that loved and cared for him dearly. As he often liked to say, "Make it a Great Day and Keep Smiling”.
