Julian Williams

May 27, 1938 — April 14, 2022


Julian "Wes" Western Williams of Clarksville, MD, passed away peacefully on April 14, 2022, at his home
at the age of 83.​

Born on May 27, 1938, in Washington, DC, he was the son of James and Marion Williams.​

Wes was a Master Electrician for 50 years with the Local 26.  Faith was an essential part of his life.  A
devout child of the Lord, Wes was passionate about sharing the love and warmth of our savior, Jesus
Christ, with his children and as many people as possible.  Now that Wes has passed into the arms of our
Lord, we should remind ourselves that while this is the end of Wes’ physical life on Earth, it’s the
beginning of an eternal and beautiful journey for Wes.  He also enjoyed playing guitar and singing
hymns, and in his early years, singing in the church choir.  Family was the center of Wes’ life, and he
leaves behind a rapidly growing and devoted family.
He is survived by his wife, Doris, daughters Cheryl Boykin of Turkey, NC and Julie Brown of Pink Hill, NC;
stepdaughters, Debra Pritchard Jones of Brunswick, MD; Beverly Youhouse of Hyattsville, MD, Bonnie
Breeden of New Windsor, MD, Barbara Kinchen and Deborah Freaner, both of Laurel, MD.  He was the
proud grandfather of twenty-two (22) grandchildren, twenty-four (24) great-grandchildren and (2) great great-grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his parents, James Williams and Marion Williams Rithman, stepfather, Joseph
Rithman, former spouse, Annie Williams, his sister Joan Anderson, and his stepson, Robert Freaner.​

A memorial service will be held at Gasch’s Funeral Home, 4739 Baltimore Avenue, Hyattsville, MD,
20781, on Thursday, April 21 at 11 a.m., followed by an internment at the George Washington Memorial
Cemetery, 9500 Riggs Road, Adelphi, MD 20783.
