Rev. Stanley Williams, Sr., son of the late Moses and Emma Blanding Williams, was born on August 26, 1951 and departed this life on Monday, August 2, 2021. He was educated in the Sumter County School System. He graduated from Ebenezer High School in 1969 and joined the United States Army. He served in Vietnam and traveled statewide and abroad during his time in the military. While serving, Stanley continued his education at several universities depending on where he was stationed. He received several degrees but the one he was most proud of was the degree in International Security. He retired from the U. S. Army with a Purple Heart and several other honorable medals as well as countless Community Awards. Stanley had accepted Christ at an early age and joined the High Hill Baptist Church, where he served faithfully until he left for the Army in 1969. No matter where the Army placed him, he always found a church where he was proud to serve. While serving in Germany, he was ordained into the Lord’s Ministry. He was indeed a very honorable role model for his family and the church family of St. Andrew M. B. Church. He was humble and diligent and always delighted in helping others. Stanley leaves to cherish his memories: his wife, Virginia Pinckney Williams; daughter, Shirley (Walter) Nash, and son, Stanley (Taryn) Williams, Jr., both of St. Louis, MO; four grandchildren; two great grandchildren; three brothers, Moses Jr. of North Carolina, Jimmy (Norina) of the Philippines, Maverick (Norma) of Sumter; one sister-in-law, Geraldine (Frank Norman); a host of aunts, nieces, nephews, extended family members and good friends.
