N. Dale Williams

September 29, 1936 - May 4, 2022

Noble Dale Williams was reunited with his sweetheart, Jean Williams, on May 4th 2022, at the age of 85. Dale was born on September 29th 1936 in Hamilton, Texas to William Joseph Williams and Geneva Hyles Williams. He was one of 11 children, growing up with Gene, Mary, Jo, Robert, Roberta, Dub, John, Paul, Dixie, and Betty. He graduated from Lewisville High School in 1956. He then advanced to work at Texas Instruments as a Manufacturing Manager giving 35+ years of service.

 

Dale and Jean were married in 1961, and they shared 57 beautiful years of love and devotion until she passed away in 2019.  Their love began in friendship, trust, and laughter. Dale and Jean loved to play poker, 42, spades, and dominos with friends and family.  Together, they were blessed with 4 children - Mark, Kevin, Greg, and Alexis.

 

Dale, also fondly known as “Lefty”, was always the life of the party. His humor and vibrant personality brought joy and laughter to all those around him.  He was voted Friendliest at school in years 54-55-56.  He served as Commissioner of the Little League Baseball and won ‘Citizen of the Year’ in Allen. Dale was a hard worker who enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. An avid outdoorsman, Dale enjoyed hunting and camping. Adventurous by nature with an innovative mind, there was nothing Dale could not fix or build with his hands. Dale enjoyed supporting high school football and attending local games, he was a passionate Allen Eagles fan. He fulfilled his dream of owning a ranch in the countryside, where he spent his days tending to the land. Dale could always be found on his tractor chewing his cigar. His grandchildren often recall their time spent on the land with their grandparents as some of the happiest times of their lives.

 

Dale is survived by his children: Mark Dale Williams and his wife Helen Williams, Kevin Don Williams, Mike Greg Williams, and Alexis Debra Williams; his grandchildren: Kristi Williams Sneed and her husband Scott Sneed, Nicholas Dale Williams, Hunter Ethan Williams and his wife Rebecca Williams, Haley Ryan Kautz and her husband Andrew Kautz, and Miranda Worthington; his great grandchildren: Mackenzie Kautz, Karli Sneed, Kenna Sneed, Ava Williams, Aiden Kautz, and Jackson Williams; and numerous nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his two brothers: Gene Williams and Robert Williams; his two sisters Dixie Stewart and Betty Williams; his two brother-in-laws Bobby Stewart and Roy Stevens; and his sister-in-law Jeanie Williams. There was nothing in this world that made him happier or prouder than his family.

 

He is preceded in death by his beloved wife Jean Williams, parents, and several siblings.

 

A devoted husband to one, a wonderful father to five, a loving grandfather to eight, a fond great grandfather to six, and a friend to many.  Noble Dale Williams will be greatly missed by his family and friends. His legacy of love and memories will transcend generations.

 

God saw you getting weary. He did what He thought was best.

He put His arms around you, and took you home to rest.

 

A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m., Friday, May 13, 2022, at Ridgeview Memorial Park, 2525 Central Expressway North, Allen, TX 75013. A reception will follow the service.

You will be well remembered as a good friend. Gracie and Joe Joe Gonzales, May 12, 2022 Please accept our Sincere Condolences on the Loss of Mr. Williams. We were introduced to Him as “Grandpa “at Kristi and Scotts wedding and we were lucky enough to spend other Family occasions with him. He was always a delight to be around. We are keeping all of His Family in our Thoughts and Prayers. Sincerely, John & Vickie Sneed
Vickie Sneed, May 12, 2022 Grandpa was always so kind and loving towards me. He made it a point to always tell me that he loved me and that I married into a good family every time we saw each other. I’m grateful to have spent the past 3 years as one of his grandkids and to get to know the gem of a person he was. I will miss him so much. Until we meet again grandpa, you have fun in heaven eating strawberry blue bell ice cream with grandma! Rebecca Williams , May 9, 2022 Grandpa was a hero in my life and he will be dearly missed. I will always remember him goosing anyone who was off their guard and chatting up everyone. He was always looking for a laugh and his smile and laugh were staples of any get together. I’m happy he has reunited with grandma pray they watch over us. Hunter Williams, May 9, 2022
