Richmond Farrell Williams, 66, known to hundreds as ‘Slim’ died on Monday, September 12, 2016 at the North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo. Born March 9, 1950 in Jones County, Mississippi, he was a son of Richmond James and Freddie Mae Ray Williams and he married Judith Eubanks. As a part of what keeps America moving, he was an over-the-road truck driver for over 30 years and after his retirement he enjoyed carpentry and was a self-proclaimed jack of all trades. Proudly serving his country, he was a veteran of the U.S. Army and he was a faithful member of the Christian Chapel Church of Christ. He was known for his quick wit and his favorite pastime was sitting around an outside fire with his family and friends. His hobbies included camping, fishing, and cooking.
