Obituary for Ricky Williams

Memorial service for Richard "Ricky" Clark Williams, 67, of Vidalia, LA will be held at Young's Funeral Home in Vidalia on Friday, April 8, 2022 at 2PM with Pastor Rick Gillespie officiating, under the direction of Young's Funeral Home.

Ricky was born on Thursday, June 24, 1954 in Natchez, MS and passed away Wednesday, April 06, 2022 in Alexandria, LA.

His family was very important to him, but his kids and grandkids were his pride and joy. Ricky loved spending time with his family and friends, especially if a good meal was involved. If the meal wasn't up to his standards he was sure to let you know "what would make it better". Ricky never missed a chance to let his family and friends know he loved them.

Ricky's best days started with a cup of coffee and story telling with his buddies. He enjoyed golfing, fishing, hunting, playing the guitar, and being a "pool shark". His greatest accomplishment was his 40 year career in law enforcement. Ricky began as a patrolman, advancing to investigator before retiring as a Police Chief.

Ricky was so loved and will dearly be missed by everyone who knew him.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Mattie Randall; adopted mother/aunt, Lucy Williams; special friend, Pam Webb; and best friend and cousin, Daryl Boles.
