Obituary for Robert Thomas "Bobby" Williams

Robert Thomas “Bobby” Williams, Sr., 72, of Chesapeake, passed away tragically, Friday, May 31, 2019, in Virginia Beach.
            Born in Norwalk, Ohio, he was the son of the late Thomas G. Williams and Martha C. Sharfenberg Williams.  He was a U.S. Navy Veteran of Vietnam having served aboard the USS America.  He graduated from Granby High School and later from Virginia Wesleyan College with a B.A. in 1975. For 41 years, Bobby worked for the City of Virginia Beach, where he was most recently a Special Projects Coordinator in Public Utilities. He was the most loving, extraordinary husband, dad, and “Pop-Pop” for which his family could ever ask. He was absolutely dedicated to his family and considered them his first priority. His was a life well lived.

Hodges and husband Rob; grandchildren, Shalie, Wesley, Audrey, and Grant; siblings, Janice Sandlin and husband Ralph, Kathy Murden, Timothy Williams and wife Tracy, Ronald Williams and wife Vanessa, as well as nieces and nephews; and “special sons” Stephen, Donnie, Phil and Jason.
