Obituary for Dwayne Williams
Dwayne Alan Williams, 45, of Salem, passed away on Monday, August 7, 2017.
Dwayne was born on Saturday, May 20, 1972, to Curtis and Priscilla Williams of Salem. All who knew Dwayne will remember his generous spirt and willingness to help friends whether it was moving furniture, offering a ride, or sharing all he had. Dwayne was also a talented musician. He enjoyed “slapping” his bass and truly loved creating music with his friends. His greatest love, however, was his daughter, Haleigh. Everyone who met Dwayne knew within moments that Haleigh was his most cherished accomplishment and source of pure joy.
Dwayne is survived by his parents; daughter, Haleigh, and her mother, Michele; brothers, Daryl, Jeff (Sue), and Tony (Cyndi); niece, Rachel; aunt, Helen (Glenwood) Martin; cousin, Steve; and uncles, Alfred (Pat) Williams and Richard (Liz) King.
