Donald H. Williams was born March 7, 1927 in Des Moines Iowa to Perry Williams and Senila Pendleton.

Once Don returned stateside he owned and operated a gas station. He later worked for the United States Postal Service and at Kucharos Mens Clothing Store. He always liked to dress nice.

The Bible states, "Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord". Don found this in the person of Glyndoris King. To this union, five children were born.

He always had an abundance of green beans and tomatoe's and would even mow the neighbors yards. A strong man of faith, Don served as a Deacon at Shiloh Baptist Church, True Bible Baptist Church, and lastly at Corinthian Baptist Church where he served in any capacity needed.
