Obituary for "Hal" Cecil Harold Williams
June 17, 1940 – July 9, 2017
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden unexpected death of Cecil Harold (Hal) Williams at age 77. Hal was the beloved husband of Helen (nee Currie), the cherished father of Betty (Stephan) Clark, Ian (Katia) Williams, and David (Sayaka) Williams, and the proud Grandfather of Emily, Megan, Jessica, Monika, and Kenta. His first wife, Jean, predeceased Hal and we are so thankful that he recently reconnected with their children Maria and Jim. Always humble and selfless, Hal spent many years dedicated to the Frank Ryan Park Little League. After years teaching Spanish, Hal worked as a translator for the Federal Government until retirement when he became devoted to maintaining his beautiful yard. A true gentleman and the kindest soul, we are thankful for our time with Hal, Dad, Pops, Grandpa, The Guy. Friends are invited to a Memorial Gathering at the West Chapel of Hulse, Playfair & McGarry, 150 Woodroffe Avenue (at Richmond Road) Ottawa, on Saturday, July 15th, from 3-5pm.
