Oscar Gene Williams, 84, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 23, 2020 at his home in Mesa, Arizona. Gene was born to Roy A. Williams and Lola Nichols on April 9, 1935 in Lehi, Arizona. He was a life long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He and his family moved to California in 1950 where he graduated from Colton High School. He served a mission for his church in the Western Canada Mission. He served honorably in the U.S. Army from 1958-1960.  He married Jacquelyn Pace in the Mesa, Arizona Temple on December 29, 1960. They have celebrated over 59 years together. They have four children: Rebecca (Becky), Kevin, Kurt, and Christianna, all born in Fontana, California. Gene worked at Valley City Supplies for 27 years. He worked for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a Physical Maintenance manager. Gene had O type blood and was a regular donor for many years. He retired from Church employment in 2000 and moved to Mesa, Arizona. After moving to Arizona Gene and Jackie bought a small cabin in Heber, AZ where they enjoyed escaping from the valley heat during the summer. He served in varying positions in his Church, including (but not limited to) Bishop, Ward and Stake missionary, Ward and Stake clerk, Ward librarian, and faithful home teacher/ministering brother.  Gene enjoyed wood working, coin collecting, puzzles, and traveling. Gene and Jackie participated in the Mesa Temple Easter Pageant four years.  They also served at the Bishop’s storehouse for three years as service missionaries. Gene was preceded in death by his parents Roy and Lola Williams, and all his siblings and their respective spouses, John Williams, Andy Williams (Dorene), Lawrence Williams (Charlene), and sister Shirley Riley (George). He is survived by their four children Rebecca Gibson (Scott), of Mesa, AZ,; Kevin Williams (Sherry), of Upland, CA.; Kurt Williams (Jana), of Mesa, AZ.; and Christi Williams, of Mesa, AZ.

    Uncle Gene and I almost went to see the original Mummy movie With Karloff but it would have given a kid like me night mares. We helped him roof his shop and he helped us build our Ashfork road he always gave more than he got. His is the greater reward now. Love ya Uncle Gene. Keep in touch AuntJackie and give more hugs 😂
