Timothy A. Williams Jr.
KENT — Timothy A. Williams Jr., 42, of New Preston, Conn., was taken from his family far too soon, and didn’t get the chance to say a proper goodbye on May 23, 2020, but the time they shared together will last forever.
Timothy was born Nov. 9, 1977, in New Haven, Conn., the son of Joan (Glass) and Timothy A. Williams Sr.
“T” as he was often called, was a loved son, strong partner, needed friend and a cherished father of three. He was raised in Kent and was a graduate of Oliver Wolcott Tech. He worked for 25 years as a mechanic at Connecticut Auto Repair (CARS) in New Milford, Conn., and just last year started working with his father in his landscaping business.
“T” loved sharing his favorite activities with his family and friends like fishing, hunting, shed hunting, hiking, mushroom foraging, darts, horseshoes, cornhole, gardening and so much more.
He always had a smile on his face and would give an arm and a leg for anyone in need. He was a talented mechanic, respected outdoorsman, and always worked harder than he had to.
Besides his parents, he’s survived by his fiancée, Sandra LaPlace of New Preston; his children, Gunner Williams of Newtown, Conn., Carter Williams of New Preston and Ellie Williams of Newtown; his sister, Samantha Williams and her fiancé, Matt Steves, of Fort Edward, N.Y.; his grandmother, Lois Colby of Bristol, Conn.; his nephews, Bailey Doyen and Gage Steves of Fort Edward and Joshua and Jacob Liska of Newtown; a niece, Sarah Liska of Newtown; his uncles, Earl Glass of West Virginia, Floyd Williams of Washington, Conn., Gerald Williams of Torrington and Thomas Williams of Bristol, Conn.; his aunts, Darla Bennett and her husband, Joe, of Missouri, Sharon Rosa and her husband, Vincent, of Maine and Melinda Schipul of New Milford; and his lifelong friend, who was more like a brother, Jay Ward Jr. of Torrington. Many cousins and numerous friends will also carry his legacy.
There will be a celebration of life at a later date.
