Howard Earl Williams entered the gates of Heaven on Sunday, September 27, 2020 after a three-year battle with leukemia. He was born on May 12, 1942 to Howard & Bernice Williams. Howard was a devout Catholic and loved her Catholic Church. He graduated valedictorian from Aransas Pass High School in 1960 and Suma Cum Laude from A&I University in Kingsville. He was an accountant and the youngest person at that time to earn a CPA. Up until his death, he worked for Esenjay Petroleum in the oil and gas industry. His 38 years with Esenjay were the best years of his career. He loved all of the “other” adventures Michael Johnson got him into. He and his wife Elizabeth fulfilled a life long dream to visit the Holy Land, Isreal. It would be the last of many trips they took together.
He is preceded in death by his wife (high school sweet heart) of 53 years. Mary Elizabeth Nell Williams, an infant son Howard “Rusty” Williams and his parents.
He leaves behind to cherish his memories; sons, Mark Williams of Portland, Texas, James “Jimbo” Williams (Rebecca) of Rockport, Texas; daughter Cindy McCarty (James) of Portland Texas; brother Dennis Williams (Jerre’) of Houston, Texas; sister Karolyn Williams Rodrique of Katy, Texas: brother-in-law and sister-in-law Robert “Bob” Nell (Diane) of Conroe, Texas. Grandchildren William “Tony” Rinald, Ashley Quintanilla (Sebastien), Christopher Williams, Sabel, Keegan and Jordan, six step-grandchildren, two great-grandchildren Isabella Quintanilla & Caiden Williams, four step-greatgrandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
