Passed Away: September 2, 2021

Robert Williams, 91, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather passed away peacefully in Williamsburg, VA on September 2, 2021.

He was born on February 10, 1930 to Robert N. Williams, Sr. and Constance Gibbs Miller in Milwaukee, WI. Robert graduated from the University School in Milwaukee, Hamilton College and Stanford University. He also served as a Lieutenant in the Navy on the USS Princeton.

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.
