James Otis Williams was born February 2, 1953 to the late Buster and Lovie Mae Williams in Tuskegee AL. He transitioned into eternal rest on Wednesday, December 30, 2015 at Baptist Medical Center South in Montgomery, AL.

At an early age Otis confessed Christ and joined Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church. In later years, Otis returned to Union Springs, AL and united with Mount Coney Baptist Church. He was a faithful and dedication member until health problems limited his ability to serve. Otis returned to his home church, Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church where he served as much as his health allowed.

Otis served in the United States Army for eight years. He returned to Union Springs, AL and worked several locations: Bullock County Hospital, Union Spring Police Department and as a ambulance driver. He also was employed with the Veteran Administration (VAMC) until he retired.

Otis was a sweet loving and caring individual, who always sought peace. He loved his family and friends dearly. All of his nieces and nephews had a very special place in his heart. He had a way of making each one feel they were very special to him.

Otis leaves to cherish his loving memories, four sisters: Juanita (Elwood) Stokes of Battle Creek, MI, Evelyn Patterson of Detroit, MI, Bessie (Stanley) Jones of Huntsville, AL, and Edna Hazzard of Union Springs, AL; three brothers: Henry James, Larrie Keith (Annie), and David Lewis Williams all of Union Springs, AL; two aunts: Mrs. Novella Ivery of Akron, OH and Mrs. Bythina Ivery of Union Springs, AL; one uncle: Dock Ivery of Union Springs, AL; and a host of special relatives and friends who will truly miss him.
Otis will truly be missed by all who knew him.
