John Williams Obituary

John Williams, 60 born in Evansville, Indiana, passed away at his home on February 14, 2024. He is survived by Janis Williams, his wife of 37 years, his daughter Janie Tifft and son-in-law Chris and granddaughter Blake and grandson Brady, his parents, Jim and Gail Williams, his brothers Mike and wife Jeanie, and Mark and wife Regina. 

He grew up in Louisville, Kentucky and moved to Jacksonville with his family in 1981 where he met the love of his life Janis.  John, Janis and Janie moved to Orlando in 1998 where they have built a circle of loving friends.  John was a longtime member of Northland Church (former elder), where he dedicated much of his time as a leader with Celebrate Recovery.  He was an active member of Forge, a men’s ministry. He had a rewarding career in various marketing executive and general manager roles from Pepsi to The Hamilton Collection ending with Sears Home Improvements.  He left his corporate life and worked in real estate that he and Janis did together as well as building several homes they enjoyed designing and building together.  In 2020, they purchased and renovated their dream home in New Smyrna Beach which they have been visiting since their dating years in college.  John loved the LORD and walked the talk by never making everyone he met no longer a stranger by the time they parted. He loved getting to know anyone he met and reaching members of the community and helping them know the LORD.  He was grateful he could retire early and spend time with his two grandchildren. 

He left this world too early, but his light will carry on in the relationships he forged.
