  • My deepest sympathy to the Williams Family in its entirety. Mark was a great model of kindness, dedication and commitment to others, often sacrificing his own needs. He was one of the first new friends I made in college. I counted him as one of my brothers. He will be greatly missed.

  • I was so sorry to hear that Mark Williams had passed. He was such a good, kind soul! I offer sincere sympathy to Mark’s family and to all those who knew him.

    I knew Mark years ago during his college years. He and his closest college friends were such a delight! They took care of one another, and came together to serve others, all as a matter of course. Mark and his circle tackled college life with gusto, and often with grins on their faces.

    Mark had a gentle and deliberate approach that surely served him well beyond his college years. Those qualities were likely invaluable to him and the communities he served throughout his career in police work.

    I am saddened by Mark’s passing, but I know he rests in the arms of his Savior.
