John Wesley Williams IV, 69, of Washington Court House, passed away January 26, 2024, at the Highland Oaks Health Center in McConnelsville, Ohio, following a prolonged illness.
John was born April 7, 1954, in Washington Court House, to the late John Wesley III and Mildred Ann (Kinzer) Williams. Following school John enlisted in the United States Navy, which went right along with his love of the ocean. This love continued throughout his life. John often vacationed on the ocean front to relax and recharge from the sights and sounds it afforded. Closer to home, John loved all things outdoors, Whether, it was a day of hunting, a day in the canoe fishing, tinkering around with an old car, or even mowing the lawn, He always found something to keep him outside. He had worked many years as a machine operator at Sugar Creek Packing. He also held positions with the local Cargill office and Blue-Ribbon Rentals, prior to his retirement. John had a passion for all animals but was especially fond of dogs and cats and his many aquarium friends.
John is survived by his children, John W. V (Tabitha) Williams and Johnna Williams (Kenny); grandchildren, Bradin Williams, Bethany Wilson, Brooklyn Gianera, Cassidy Cook, Cheyana Garcia, and Jonathan Cook; sisters Margaret Williams and Faye Campbell, several great grandchildren, 1 great great grandchild, and his many dear friends, including a special friend Steve Cole, and his K-9 companion Brutus.
A service is planned at 1pm on Thursday, February 1, 2024, at the Roberts Funeral Home4 in Washington Court House with Pastor Danny Dodds officiating. Burial with Military Honors will follow in the Bainbridge Cemetery. The family will receive friends on Thursday from 11am until the start of the service.
