Gifts & Memorial Donations



Robert “Wesley” Williams, an avid hunter who was passionate about the sport and loved spending time outdoors, passed away on February 10, 2024. He was a lifelong resident of Henderson County, a 1979 graduate of East Henderson High School and employed by BurntShirt Vineyards, a job he loved.

Wesley was intensely competitive and a skilled hunter in every sense of the word. It didn’t matter if he was using his rifle, muzzleloader, or his 90 lb compound bow. He was a hard worker and always willing to lend a helping hand. He had a gentle disposition and was a man of few words. Wesley also had a one-of-a-kind sense of humor that his friends and family well know.

A devoted son, father grandfather, brother and friend, Wesley is survived by his parents Bob and June Williams: his son Hunter and wife Brooke: his grandchildren Ayden and Bentley: his daughter Kaley  and his grandson Gavin. His brother Ransome and wife Christy: His sister Christy Dorn and husband Jeff.

Along with a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

He will be deeply missed, but his memory and hunting stories will live on in our hearts forever.

A private service is planned at a later date.

    My sweet cousin. I loved you so much! I have a lot of great memories with you that I will never forget and always hold dear in my heart. I remember you showing me how to catch brimm and bluegill from the back of the boat using bread and corn. You eventually showed me how to bait my hook with a worm too. That same Summer I had to get stitches in my knee the day before we left for our yearly family week at the lake. Christy and I were riding bikes and I went over the handle bars of mine. You must have felt sorry for me because I couldn't get the stitches wet and everyone else was enjoying the lake, early one morning you came and got me and took me down to the edge of the water where you had blown up a two man raft. You pointed for me to get in and you proceeded to swim, with me in tow, all the way across the cove and back. I will never forget it. I remember when you tried to show me how to use a bow. I barely had enough strength to pull it back let alone hit anywhere near the target. We quickly decided it wasn't for me. You would stay outside for hours when we were kids. You weren't afraid of anything in the woods. It was like you were born with a hunting knowledge. You could hunt anything and succeed. You told me the funniest stories about catching huge catfish with your arm and how a fish had beat one of your friends up because they didn't hold it the right way. You were laughing so hard you couldn't hardly get the story told. There are more wonderful memories that I will always hold close to my heart. I am thankful for them all. I'll see you again one day sweet cousin. I love you...Linda
