Frederick Paul Williams, Jr., suddenly went to be with the Lord on August 7, 2022. Fred was 57 and grew up in Locust Valley, New York. He moved to West Palm Beach, Florida in 1984 to start a career in the trades as a licensed plumbing contractor and to serve his country as an Army reservist. Fred is survived by his dedicated and loving wife, Karen Williams, his son Frederick Williams who is a graduate of aeronautical engineering and was mentored by his father in the plumbing trade, his mother Rose Ann Williams, sisters Donna Mistretta and Kathleen Winitsky, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
As a plumbing contractor, clients and friends knew Fred not only as an excellent craftsman of his plumbing trade and as an honest and witty business man, but as a man who lived out his faith and friendship by being ready to use his gifts to benefit others in need. Ex. 35:30 and Mt. 7:12. He could regularly be seen on his iPad early in the morning and late in the evenings providing advice to other plumbers across the United States. He regularly provided needed plumbing or building assistance to nearby neighbors, family or friends (even outside Florida), and his local church family. Those who knew him well also knew he loved his country. He was steadfast about protecting liberty and seeking justice for all people. Jer. 9:24.
Fred was also very passionate about encouraging a strong and deliberate work ethic and providing teens and young adults with the tools to learn the trades. As a result, in lieu of flowers, his family is asking you to consider donating to Put Tools In Schools at http://www.puttoolsinschools.org.
This is an organization that was dear to him.
