Mr. Osborne F. Williams, age 90 and a resident of Trousdale Lane in Columbia passed away at his residence on Monday, April 30, 2012.
With military honors provided by the United States Army, Mr. Williams will be entombed beside his late wife, Adda Belle, on Friday, May 4, 2012 at 2:00 PM in North-Meadowlawn Cemetery in New Port Richey, Florida. Complete arrangements are under the direction of Heritage Funeral Home.
Mr. Williams was the youngest of twelve children of Samuel and Margaret Ryan Williams and was born May 14, 1921 in Tiltonsville, Ohio. He entered the United States Army and served near the end of World War II. His working career followed with General Motors, from which he retired as an Operations Technician at the Columbus, Ohio plant. Throughout life, he maintained his Catholic faith. He will be remembered as a “sports minded” man who loved watching any baseball or football game when televised. His personal collections of items included Emmett Kelly Clown and Goebel figurines. Some of his greatest treasures were found picking around garage sales looking for just the right item he could sell for more money at his own sales.
In addition to his parents and his wife, he was preceded in death by his eleven siblings, but is survived by his son: Doug Williams of Columbia, TN; two grandchildren: Ryan Williams of Grove City, OH and Kimberly Losurdo of Spring Hill, FL; and three great-grandchildren.
The family requests memorial donations be made in Osborne’s memory to the American Cancer Society.
