Herman L. Williams

December 13, 1936 - December 26, 2017
Herman Langston Williams, age 81, went to be with his Lord and Savior on December 26, 2017. He passed peacefully in his home in Virginia Beach, VA with his daughter and her fiancé by his side.
Herman, the youngest of 10 children, served the country he loved for over 20 years and was a retiree from the United States Army. He was a loving, supportive family man and a loyal friend to many. His wonderful sense of humor brought smiles and laughter to those who were fortunate enough to cross his path.
He is predeceased by his parents Adolphus Williams and Ethel (Knox) Williams; his wife, Peggy A. Ellis-Williams; as well as several brothers and sisters. Left to cherish his memory are his daughter, Alexis Albritton; 2 sisters, Annie V. Wiggins and Bertha Smith-Elliot; 3 step-children; and a whole host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
