Charles ‘Chuck’ Williams III, 75, of Hometown, and formerly of Windsor Locks, CT, passed away Friday morning at St. Luke’s Hospital, Coaldale, surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Pittston, he was the son of the late Charles and Mary (Fitzsimmons) Williams Jr. and was of the Roman Catholic faith.
Chuck was a proud graduate of the University of Connecticut. Prior to retiring, he was employed in sales at LVR of Allentown.
He was a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus, Council 26 of Windsor Locks, CT, a member of the Silverbrook Rod & Gun Club Trap League and the West Penn Rod and Gun Club.
Chuck’s personality was larger than life. His deep voice and singing always preceded his entrance. He was a collector of cars, trains, guns, watches, boats and numerous pictures of animals he shot because they were wreaking havoc on his garden.
Chuck was a devoted “Pop Pop” to his grandkids and celebrated all their activities and accomplishments. He was an avid fan of UCONN Huskies Men’s and Women’s Basketball and the Baltimore Ravens.
Chuck enjoyed spending his time fishing and shooting trap. He loved cruising and vacationing in Aruba, and especially loved his beach house in Selbyville, DE, where his spirit will reside for eternity.
Surviving, are his wife of 30 years, Carol (Wisniewski) Williams, whom he claims to have fallen in love with at first sight, and stalked, until he finally convinced her.
Also surviving are his beloved daughters Lisa La Forte and husband Jason of Medfield, Mass.; Melissa Williams of Tyngsboro, Mass.; Amy Babcock and husband Eric of Chesterfield, VA; and Sandra Nester and husband David of McAdoo; his cherished grandchildren Trista, Aubree and David Nester; Cameron, Aiden and Liliana La Forte; and Teddi Jaclyn Babcock; sister Mary Margaret Montemerlo and husband Leonard of Windsor Locks, CT; brother Ryan Williams of Middlebury, CT; sisters-in-law Kathleen Williams of Windsor Locks, CT; Janie Kondash and husband Vincent of McAdoo; and Jennifer Klesh and husband Brian of McAdoo; Uncle James Fitzsimmons, 96, of Tunkhannock; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and neighbors.
A Celebration of Life Service will be announced at a later date.
