Mark Williams

November 15, 1932 — January 30, 2021

Mark Ray Williams was born on November 15, 1932 in Santaquin, Utah to Samuel Earl Williams and Hazel Adelene Greenhalgh. He attended school in Santaquin and Payson where he played baseball and was the captain of the football team. After high school he served in the Korean Conflict and was honorably discharged at the rank of sergeant first class.

He married Kathleen Marie Ore on August 3rd, 1956 in Santaquin, Utah. On November 19th, 2016 Mark and Kathleen were sealed in the Payson Utah Temple. They started their family in Santaquin, Utah which started with 3 children Curtis, Kelly and Morgan. That has now grown to 12 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.

Mark worked at Geneva Steel for 37 years as a boiler maker, where he made lifelong friends who continued to meet weekly for breakfast up until his death.

Kathleen and Mark split time between Santaquin and Mesquite where he loved a good game of blackjack.

He always coached his boys in baseball and taught many young men the skills of baseball. He was a volunteer firefighter for Santaquin City for many years. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved to hunt, fish and ride his four wheeler. He loved a good western movie and never met a Johny Cash song he didn’t like. His greatest joy was watching his grandkids grow up and succeed in the journey of life.

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Linda, brother Bob and wife Charlotte. Mother and father in law Fred and Lucille Ore and his two best friends Howard Armstrong and Lamar Frost.

He is survived by his wife of 64 years Kathleen Williams, their children Curtis & Rose Williams, Brian & Kelly Stevenson, Morgan & Keri Williams, as well as their 12 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.

The family would like to express their gratitude for all the kind acts of service that have been shown by our friends and neighbors. It has truly made this difficult time easier for us.
