Bobby Howard Williams passed away Sunday, September 16, 2018 at Los Robles Hospital in Thousand Oaks, California at age 81.
 
Bobby was born January 22, 1935 to Wayne and Charlcia Williams in Fort Worth, Texas, where his Father's side of the family settled shortly after the Civil.S. Navy in 1953 at the age of 18 where he became a Submariner, IC3 (SS), serving aboard the U.S.S. Sea Fox in the waters off Korea.
 
After his military service he returned to California where he attended college and eventually earned his electrical engineering degree which secured his career in the elevator business. He built elevators all over California but noted his work on the Bonaventure Hotel's glass elevators and the Queen Mary as special achievements. He was active in his Union, holding various offices and eventually founded the Western Elevator Company.
 
After a short retirement, he returned to work with the City of Los Angeles, supervising the construction of the Los Angeles subway system's escalators.
 
In 1960 he met his true love and lifelong companion who he still thought of as "the most beautiful girl in the room." He and Carolyn Henderson were married July 22, 1961 and resided in the San Fernando Valley raising their five children.
 
In his retirement, Bobby was an active and dedicated grandfather and great grandfather. He loved golf, his affiliation with the Parche Base Subvet organization, and he was a lifelong Mason and Shriner.
 
Bobby is survived by his wife of 57 years, Carolyn; his brother, Gene Williams; his five children, Michael, Karen (Brad), Mark (Arlene), Patti, and Dennis; his 10 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren.
