John C. Williams passed peacefully the early morning of July 10th surrounded by family and his loving wife by his side. He was born the second of three boys to Frank & Lucille (Zehner) Williams in Bend, OR in 1941. The family moved to Kittitas, WA in 1947 and after a move to Moses Lake, finally moved and built their family home in Quincy, WA in the early 1950’s and graduated from QHS in 1959.

Johnny started his work career with Pacific Supply in 1960 and then worked for Sun Basin Growers which eventually became Full Circle, Cenex and finally CHS. He worked as a field man for several of those years and became the general manager of the Quincy Cenex Operations in 1989. He retired from the company after 42 years of dedicated service. Cenex was like a family and he was often the first person to arrive to start the coffee and enjoy a morning chat with area farmers and other field staff.

He spent many years fishing and hunting and enjoyed the many hunting trips he took on horseback up the Entiat with his hunting buddies.

After retirement he could be found tinkering on various farm machinery and driving around the farm in the mule with a trusted lab by his side. He and his wife owned dry land wheat as well and had plenty to stay busy while also spending time at their property in Creston, WA where they pastured their herd of Highlander cattle. He also made it a priority to hit the water with his wife Bernice on many of their eventful fishing trips. He really enjoyed their time of fishing, crabbing and clamming on the coast with friends and family.

John & Bernice’s home on the hill became the center of many family holiday and harvest gatherings. He was always in charge of making stacks of hotcakes in the morning and manning the pressure cookers during tomato canning day.

John is survived by his wife of 36 years, Bernice (Roberts), brother, Daniel (Sue) Williams of Bend OR, brother in law Mel Roberts of Paraguay, Ron (Connie) Roberts of Coeur de Alene, ID, and children: Tracy Williams of Ephrata, Carla (Tony) Gonzales of Kennewick, Annette (Chris) Lupo of Moses Lake, Lisa (Gerry) Fuchs of Spokane, Tonya (Damian) Reid of Port Orchard, David (Alona) Wilson of Dallas, TX. Grandchildren: David, Jacob, Jarod, Kyle, Lauren, Frank, Henry, Elizabeth, Darian, Devin, Dylan, Tucker, Taran & Marshall and great-granddaughters, Penelope & Violet.

He is preceded in death by his father, Frank, mother Lucille and brother Jim.

There will be a service and celebration of life Sunday July 26th at 2:00 pm at John & Bernice’s home in Quincy.
