Thomas Eugene Williams

Thomas Eugene Williams, 81, passed away peacefully at his home in Holden, Missouri on Saturday October 1, 2022.

Tom was born Wednesday, December 4, 1940, to Eugene Harvey Williams and Helen (Bromley) Williams in Kansas City, Kansas.

After high school Tom became a self-employed construction engineer. In 1960 he married the love of his life, Linda Peterson, and together they raised four children.

The family moved to the farm in the late 1970s where Tom found his love of farming. He was a Ford tractor fan and wouldn’t allow green or red tractors on the place.

Tom’s last day on earth was spent in the tractor doing what he loved. He was an avid supporter of the Boys Scouts of America, The Indian Nation and several worthy charities. Tom had a giving spirit and did so without hesitation or acknowledgement. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Thomas was preceded in death by his wife, Linda; parents, Eugene and Helen; stepbrother, Bill Bunte; brother, Corky Williams; sister, Judy Corklan.

He is survived by his three sons, James Williams, wife Patricia of Holden, MO, Roy Williams of Clinton, MO, David Williams, wife Cari of Howard, KS; daughter, Cathy Davolt, husband Mike of Clinton, MO; brother, Jerry Williams of Linwood, KS; 13 grandchildren; 21 great grandchildren.
