Obituary

H. Martin Williams 1935-2020
Frankfort

H. Martin Williams, “Marty” went home to heaven on January 29th with family and friends at his bedside in the Presbyterian Home in New Hartford. He was born on June 16, 1935 in Litchfield, N.Y. at the farmhouse on Berberick Rd, a son of the late Harry and Ella McDonald Williams. He left the family farm early in life and worked for The Bendix company in Utica, Oneida County Boiler Works, which he purchased, and also formed the H.M. Williams Company, where he had serviced commercial boilers across central NY for more than 50 years.
On July 17, 1954, he married Mary L. Miller at the Norwich Corners Presbyterian Church. They purchased a piece of property on Albany Road, Frankfort NY. He remodeled the small house he called, a “shack” and built the home you see there today.
Martin had a passion for not only wanting to know how machinery and equipment worked, but how to repair it. He would try his hand at any task and could perform electrical, plumbing, carpentry, and mechanical like a skilled craftsman. One of his children said, everything I learned to do right, I learned from my father, the rest, I learned the hard way.
His most treasured and heartfelt interest was that of knowing the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, being a loving husband, caring father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was a faithful parishioner of the Norwich Corners Presbyterian and Living Faith Bible Church. He loved the Lord and served on various church boards, always committed to improving the structure and mechanical facilities of the church as well as spiritual wellbeing of parishioners. He and his family would drive countless miles to bring children and adults to church services, activities and vacation bible school. In most recent years, he loved to tell people that he is a descendant of Roger Williams, the founder of Rhode Island, who was greatly persecuted for his strong faith in God. Martin would often quote the poem “God Makes A Path”, which was read to him in his final moments.
Many memories were made and shared over the years with family and friends while camping at various lakes throughout the Adirondacks and the family camp at Pine Lake.
Martin is survived by his second wife Jeannette Casimir Williams, his sister Hortense, his daughter; Shelly and George Perry of Mohawk, his three sons; David and Nancy Williams of Sauquoit, Mark and Vicki Williams of Frankfort and Dan and Marlis Williams of Cincinnati, OH., 12 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.
He was predeceased by his son Marty Williams Jr. on April 28, 2016 and his first wife of 62 years, Mary L. Williams on November 5, 2016.
Visitation will be Saturday, February 15 from 9-12 at the Smith Funeral Home, 3022 Oneida St. Sauquoit.
Martin’s Memorial and Celebration of Life service will take place immediately following the visitation at 1:00 at the Living Faith Bible Church, 2922 Oneida St., Sauquoit.
Officiants will be Pastor Dave Green, Roger Povec and Dan Williams.
