Jeffery Allan “Jeff” Williams, 62, of Edmond, Oklahoma, passed away on September 20, 2017, in Oklahoma City, surrounded by members of his loving family.
Jeff was born March 30, 1955, in Bartlesville, Oklahoma to the late James E. Williams, Sr. and Juanita Krigbaum Williams. At the age of three, he moved with his family to El Paso, TX, the place he always considered to be where he grew up. In 1968, the family returned to Oklahoma, living in the city of Bethany where Jeff attended Putnam West High School. After graduating in 1973 Jeff worked in a variety of jobs, including the Amarillo gas utility and Time Tool and Equipment Rental of Edmond, but he was always destined to be his own boss. In 1994, he co-founded Metro Property Contractors, Inc. of Edmond and was co-owner at the time of his death. Jeff married the love of his life, Tanya, on January 30, 1977 with whom he had two children, Sarah Hallmark (husband Aaron), of Edmond, OK, and Caleb Williams, Oklahoma City, OK.
He is survived by his wife, Tanya, his children, two grandchildren, AJ Hallmark and Ella Hallmark, a brother, James E. Williams, Jr. (wife Kaye), of Oklahoma City, a sister, Alice R. Tullis (husband KJ) of Yukon, OK, nieces Lisa Carr, Lori McCormack, Patricia Tullis, nephew Ryan Williams, and a host of relatives, friends, and acquaintances. Jeff was a kind, generous person who will be terribly missed by all who knew him.
Services will be 10 AM Tuesday, September 26, at Matthews Funeral Home, 601 S. Kelly Ave, Edmond, OK. Donations in his memory may be made to the Hope Center of Edmond or the University of Texas football program.
