Lawrence E. ‘Larry’ Williams

By From page A4 | November 29, 2012


Feb. 16, 1935 — Nov. 25, 2012

Larry, a resident of Fairfield, was born on Feb. 16, 1935, in White Plains, New York, to Lawrence and Amy Williams. He passed away on Nov. 25, 2012, from complications of Parkinson’s disease.

In 1957, he graduated from Cornell University with a B.S. Degree in Economics. After college, he worked for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and the California Department of Boating and Waterways. He then served as Vice President of Economic and Management Sciences for Daniel, Mann, Johnson and Mendenhall, an international consulting firm.

In 1971, he established his own consulting firm, Williams-Kuebelbeck & Associates, with his close personal friend, James L. Kuebelbeck. This firm was a real estate, economic and financial consulting firm. Larry planned numerous residential, commercial and industrial property developments in California, throughout the nation and overseas. He specialized in waterfront property development.

He is survived by his wife, Joanne of Fairfield. He is the father of three sons, Gregory, Geoffrey and Garth, all of Santa Cruz; his sister, Carol Nelson of Victorville, California; his cousins, Barbara Van Putten of Fairfield and Chip Winckler of Tonopah, Nevada.

He was a loving and devoted father to his three sons, and was cherished by stepdaughter and son-in-law, Anne and Robert Scharf, stepson and daughter-in-law, Greg and Tracee Sawyer. He was a fun-loving and treasured step-grandfather to Caitlin, Sarah and Mason Scharf, and Molly and Maryanne Sawyer.

One of Larry’s greatest pleasures was hiking with his wife in Muir Woods or at Point Reyes in Marin County. He loved being in nature, near the ocean or in any redwood forest. He was a lifelong avid reader, rarely seen without a book in his hand.

In keeping with his wishes, no service will be held. Memorials may be made to Mission Solano, 740 Travis Blvd., Fairfield, CA 94533, or donations to Point Reyes National Seashore Association, 1 Bear Valley Road, Bldg. 70, Point Reyes Station, Calif. 94956, www.ptreyes.org.
