With love and sadness we will remember Uncle Bobby, a genuinely kind man who loved a good cook-out and loved to share the funny stories about growing up with Nana and Papa Williams and all the brothers and sisters in Providence. With sincere condolences to aunt Ginny, cousin Nancy and John and cousin Bobby and Carolyn and all their kids. With love and condolences to his brothers Uncle Jack and Auntie Mary Williams, Uncle Junior and Auntie Margaret Williams and my mother, and uncle's sister, Virginia Skuce. Rest in Peace Uncle.

I'm sorry for your loss. He was a great Uncle that I always enjoyed talking with and listening to. I have many fond memories in my childhood when the family would get together and Uncle Bobby and his brothers would talk about their fishing trips together with Papa and when they spoke about their childhood. He was also an American Patriot who served in the United States Marine Corps and was a veteran of the Korean War. Hearing stories of his and my other Uncles military service was one of my inspirations for entering military service. You will be missed.....Semper Fi
