Book Details

You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. James 4:14 NIV

After being asked to speak at a memorial and realizing that many of the newer attorneys in the Southside community do not know the older attorneys who have been so influential, Ronald W. Williams knew he had to share his memories and personal reflections while he was still capable of doing so. These memories are priceless.

 

About the Author

Ronald W. Williams

A native of Danville, Virginia, some might call Ronald W. Williams a living local legend. From being a highly successful attorney for more than fifty years to serving as mayor of Danville, Mr. Williams has lived a life of service to his community. He has given of his time in so many civic and political capacities, far too numerous to name. He is currently the oldest actively-practicing member of the area bar associations. Ronald W. Williams was married to Lurae Baker Williams who died in an automobile accident in 1994. They had five children who have gone on to do great things. Mr. Williams now has eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Mr. Williams later married his current wife, Hazel M. Kennedy Williams from Staunton, Virginia who had three children, one deceased, plus two grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. They have maintained two residences, one in Williamsburg, Virginia and the other in Brosville, Virginia. For a long period of time, they traveled the world together, usually with the senior lawyers division of the American Bar Association. Mr. Williams is now in a wheelchair after a failed back operation, but continues to go into the office to practice personal injury law. They feel very blessed to have an extended family in their later years. God has been good.
