Michael (Mick) Ray Williams, son of Ray and Joyce Williams, was born November 11, 1952, in Princeton, Illinois. He departed this life Saturday, May 2, 2020. In the early 1960’s, Mick would vacation with his parents/family here at Lake of the Ozarks. They came yearly until the entire family decided to move down permanently. By this time Mick was newly married and was anxious to enjoy this beautiful area with his new bride Kathie (Katie). Mick was an avid fisherman and for a side job would “guide” others to help them find pockets of white bass and crappie ready for the taking. It wasn’t too long until two beautiful girls (Jessica and Amanda) completed their family. While working at his parents’ marina, Mick lived next door to his folks for a few years. It was a wonderful time for the family to be close and enjoy many fun times together. Mick eventually changed directions and went into the auction business, working with Katie to develop Greenview Auction, a thriving business for many years. Most recently Mick had worked at Lakeview Resort, filling many roles there.
Mick and Katie created many wonderful memories with their girls, creating special traditions along the way. In the early 2000’s they were blessed with a grandson (Aiden), who brought much joy!
With great love can come great sorrow. Less than 2 years ago Mick lovingly cared for Katie as she lost her battle to cancer. She went on to her eternity with Jesus and now he has joined her. Also, preceding Mick in death was his father, Ray Williams. Those surviving who will miss him greatly are his mother, Joyce Williams, his daughters Jessica Williams, Amanda Williams, and grandson Aiden Goodwin; his sisters Kris Williams and Sherrie (Ken) Browning; sister-in-law Karen (George) Shearer; brothers-in-law Fred (Mimi) Bachman, Ted (Jeanne) Bachman and Jim (Ellen) Bachman.
