WILLIAMS, HAROLD  
HAROLD WILLIAMS Harold H. Williams, a 33-year resident of Boulder City, passed away July 17, 2016, at home, at the age of 94. Harold was born Dec. 21, 1921, to George and Bertha Williams, in Judsonia, Ark. He was raised during the Great Depression when life was difficult at best. He traveled to El Dorado, Ark., at an early age with his parents, where his father was employed in the oil fields and then they moved to Damascus, Ark., where his parents attempted to scratch out a living farming. Harold attended school at Damascus and South Side until the 11th grade when he had to drop out to help support the growing family. He joined a Depression created organization called, "Civilian Conservation Corps, which was patterned somewhat like the Army with roughly 200 members (later referred to as enrollees). He graduated from high school in Paron, Ark. during this time by attending night school. In the two and one-half years there, he attained the status of senior leader a position roughly the equivalent to first sergeant in the Army. He then worked for a couple of railroad companies for the next four years. During the period with the CCC, he married and largely because of a breakup of that marriage, Harold took a job with the Air Force in Japan which lasted for five years. In this job, he was in charge of a transportation unit which handled all inbound and outbound supplies for an Air Force headquarters as well as handling the personal property of military and civilian personnel who had their families join them. Upon returning home he was offered a similar job with a substantial promotion in an Air Force depot being constructed in French Morocco, he accepted. In this job he was the civilian deputy to a military director and together they were responsible for managing military freight airport, a motor pool with approximately 1,000 vehicles and Base railroad with three engines and approximately 50 mostly petroleum freight cars. He spent another five years at this, when returned to the US, where he joined a logistics group supporting the Air Force missile program at Vandenberg AFB. Harold moved from this job to the Federal Aviation Administration spending most of his time at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center (since renamed) where he eventually reached the position of executive officer. In this capacity, he was in charge of all administrative functions. During this period, he spent one year in Washington, D.C., working mostly on organizing the newly authorized Department of Transportation. During his work for both the Air Force and Federal Aviation Administration, Harold received numerous performance awards and citations for outstanding service. Also during this period he met and married his wife, Vera. He retired from civil service after 30 years and then worked a few years in the casino industry where he served as director of administration and director of security. Harold suffered many late life health problems also but none as debilitating as the COPD that took Vera's life. His worst nightmare happened Aug. 11, 2011, when he lost his loving wife, of 39 years, to COPD. Vera was not only his wife, but his best friend, his buddy, partner and confidant. Although he tried it seemed he just could not recover from this loss. After moving to Boulder City, Harold and Vera lived what appeared to be an ideal (at least for them) retirement life. They made daily visits to the lake, parks and casino's entertaining numerous friends, relatives and former co-workers. Both liked Bingo, the many casino shows and the casino video poker machines. They lived life to the fullest until deteriorating health took over. He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Bertha Williams; spouse, Vera P. Williams; and siblings, Ernest Williams, George Williams, Dorthea Hancock and Carl Williams. Surviving family members are brother, Chester Doyle Williams (Barbara); sister, Carolyn (H.R.) Hartsfield; children, Curtis (Delores) Williams, Henry (Raquel) Clarke, Graham (Dee Rae) Clarke and Bonita Clarke; grandchildren, Lyn Morris (Rob), Sacha Del Valle (Robert), Jordan Anderson (Derek), Taylor Clarke, Gordon Clarke, Monique Clarke and Vera Anne Clarke; great-granddaughters, Danielle Helbig and Dakota Anderson; along with many other nieces, nephews and cousins. The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors that treated our dad at Desert Springs Hospital and the care given by Serenity Hospice. Viewing will be 9-10:30 a.m. Friday, July 22, with service following, both at Boulder City Family Mortuary, at 833 Nevada Highway, Suite 1, Boulder City, NV 89005. Burial will be follow at 11:15 a.m. at Boulder City Cemetery, 501 Admas Blvd. Family and friends can sign an online memorial guestbook at www.bouldercityfamilymortuary.com
