Oscar Lewis Williams of Atlanta, GA and formerly of Sevierville, TN, passed away peacefully in the early hours of September 6, 2018, after a struggle with failing health. Oscar was born on January 24, 1923 to Edna Kansada Williams and Oscar Lewis Williams Sr. of Sevierville, Tennessee. Oscar served as a navigator in a B17 in the 8th Air Force during WWII.

He was a devoted husband to the love of his life, Myrtle Howard, also of Sevierville, TN, who passed away in 2005. They enjoyed 60 years of marriage. He was the devoted father to four children, daughters Terri W. Goldstein, Sandra W. Gadd, Jan W. Masey and son Robin L. K.
