Obituary of Ronald Paul Williams Sr.
Ronald “Paul” Williams, Sr., a native of New Orleans, LA, was born on November 3, 1963 to his late parents, James Louis Williams, III and Minnie Mae Dawson Williams. He passed away due to health-related issues on September 28, 2019 at his home in Alexandria, LA. About four years ago, he established Prestige Lawn Service, which later expanded to two more entrepreneurial endeavors: Prestige Car Wash and Taste of Nola Sno Ball Stand. His desire was not to just provide a great service to his customers, but to make a positive impact on his new community. Affectionately known to many as “Unc”, he generously gave to those in need, including but not limited to, food and clothing. Wherever he saw a need, he was there to help in any way he could.
Paul accepted Christ as his Saviour and was baptized at the age of 17 and became a member of East Jerusalem Baptist Church in New Orleans for many years. Most recently, he became a proud member of Second Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church in Alexandria, LA. under the leadership of Pastor Rodney McNeal. His christianity was revealed to those outside of the four walls of his church, particularly in “the hood’’by his generosity and compassion for those in need.
He will be deeply and dearly missed by his wife, Kimberly; sons: Ronald Paul, Jr. and Kim Randy; granddaughter, Naima Williams; mother-in-law, Genevia Francis; brother, Tyrone Williams, Sr.; sisters: Sandra Pender, Shelia Lewis, and Monica Smith; brother-in-law, Melvin Francis; sister-in-law, Nicole Francis; as well as a host of uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, other relatives, friends and all those who were blessed to have known him.
