Brian Williams

May 27, 1957 — October 5, 2023

Brian C. Williams passed away on Thursday, October 5, after a long illness. He was preceded in death by his parents, Melton and Charlotte Williams, and his brother-in-law John Denney.


He is survived by his brother Steve Williams (Jackie) and sister Yvonne Denny (John) and nieces and nephews Dana Wilson (Laura), Cory Wilson, and Sheena Boran (Keith), and a large extended family.


He is remembered for his service in the U.S. Army, which took him to Runit Island in the Enewetok Atoll of the Marshall Islands to work as part of the Atomic Cleanup Mission. His name is the last one on the red and white sign that still stands on the island, honoring those who served there and warning visitors away. He loved playing his guitar and writing songs.


The family will hold a private burial at a later date.


You are invited to share a personal memory of Brian or your condolences with his family at his online memorial located at Companion Funeral Home of Cleveland and the Cody family are honored to assist the family with these arrangements.
