Leroy Williams Obituary

Leroy Williams was born February 2, 1962 to Reed and Nollies Broach Williams in Mena, Arkansas.

Leroy was a loved husband, dad, papa, brother, uncle, and friend to many. He worked hard doing insulation work on power plants, traveling to different locations. When an accident in 2003 left him unable to work, he was able to enjoy watching birds flock to his feeders. He looked forward to Spring to get started gardening. He loved this, it was his passion. His gardens were full and beautiful and always bountiful enough to share quite a bit. He loved hunting and fishing too and family get togethers. He was family oriented and never hesitated if anyone needed him, he would drop what he was doing to help. He adored his two grandkids and took pride in teaching them a wide variety of handy ways to do things and his cute phrases he always said like, "papa got it." He loved and cherished his wife Tammy for every minute of their 26 years. They had the phrase, "two mules pulling the same plow" and they worked thru to the end pulling the same plow. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Leroy was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Ray Williams, JL Williams, and Grover Williams.

He is survived by his wife, Tammy; daughter, Nikki Odle; two grandkids, Ali and Jack; one brother, Joe Williams and wife Elaine; five sisters, Becky Sherrouse of Wickes, Arkansas, Mary and husband John Whitlow, Ruby and husband Edward, Billy Faye and husband John, and Betty and husband Jim Williamson. Also numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
