John R. “Jack” Williams
“Softly, I will leave you softly.....
Long before your arms can beg me stay
For one more hour or one more day....”
Peacefully, at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Stroke Unit, Charlottetown on Sunday, July 22, 2012 of John “Jack” Williams of Wheatley River. Beloved husband of Debra Williams (Lieutenant) and father of John Williams, James Williams, Jeffrey Williams and Elizabeth Lieutenant. Brother of Gail Kovach (Jules) and Janet Dawson-Brock (David). Predeceased by his parents John and Constance (nee Richardson) Williams. Jack also leaves behind his best friend and beloved pet, Storm.

As an adult, Jack moved to Toronto and worked in the finance and automobile industries, and returned every summer to operate and eventually own Windermere. In 2008, Jack and Debra retired from Windermere and established All’s Well on Wheatley Cottages in Wheatley River.
