Vernon C. Williams, 94, passed away on February 8, 2019. He was born on November 16, 1924 to Joseph and Ada Williams in Evansville, Indiana.

Vernon was a World War II veteran serving in the U.S. Army with the 75th Infantry Division and fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He was also a member of the VFW 1114. Following his military service, he worked as an engineer at Whirlpool where he retired in 1984. Vernon’s passion in life was golf. He played up until the age of 92 and loved to play with his friends.
