This memorial website was created in the memory of, Kenny Williamson. All visitors are welcomed and encouraged to share your memories, testimonials and photos. We [family, friends, players, colleagues] all have stories, words of wisdom to share.
"Ken was my cubemate in Danang in 1969. We had previously served together at Dover Air Force Base and George AFB. He was a great friend during that trying time. We made contact a few years before he passed but I suffered a heart attack and we couldnt get together. When a man is as good and steady a friend in combat as he was you know his character is of the finest! God rest his eternal soul!"
"2 years, you're missed."
"KCW, still missing your sage advice. Happy Birthday."
"It's been a few months now,and I miss my brother every day.I am thankful for the time we had together.R.I.P.
"Your kind and honest words will be surely missed, and I definitely appreciated your contribution to the young people of the Virgin Islands. So sad that we won't meet again at some International Competition or Final Four."
"A "friend" who indeed loved at all times!
I cannot, and shall not, forget our check-ins over the years just to see how things were going and to give extended birthday salutes! We'd catch up on excursions, experiences, and enlightenments and never part without a few belly laughs in between....
How I shall miss you, my friend!"
""From the streets of HarlemFrom court to court
We watched each other grow
You mentored most the neighborhood
Now there’s something the world should know
Your words of wisdom never failed
They touched us young and old
Our pathways you have helped to shape
Life’s journey you’d unfold
You encouraged me to be a cheerleader
I told you I was shy
You said “It’ll break you out your shell”"
"Now I speak boldly, that’s no lie
We watched each other grow
In accomplishments far and wide
I want the world to share with me
How I think of you with pride
I know you touched more than a few
With the goodness of your heart
So now I write this tribute to you
So sad to see you part"
"Kenny, RIP my Brother. I love you!!!"
"I'm from Jersey City NJ played against Eggman when
I was a kid in NYC 25 yrs later while working at a fish
Spot called Jordan's reminded him I remembered him
from Riverside he said U member that ill never forget Eggman
RIP VIP Peace"
"As I read about Mr. Williamson, its obvious that he lived a beautiful life. To your brother Gerald, we express our sympathy and will keep the family in prayer. From Kelvin Cunningham and Valiria Cunningham Willis"
"How appropriate the background song is "My Way". Memories abound, he did it his way. Every lesson taught will be remembered; every laugh and chuckle will be remembered."
"When every I spoke to my brother-in law ,he sounded like he was smiling and very soft spoken. Last year in the playoffs between the Grizzles and the thunder,( my team) I started texting my brother-in-law,Gerald said do it @ your on risk(? his brothers verable respone).We texted back and forth,@ game-end he texted good game sis,"
"Mr. Kenneth - had a heart of gold. I have known him about 5 year now. I work at the FedEx Forum, I remembered when I sung the National Anthem at the Grizzlie's Game and he came over to me and said "beautiful job, you should be sing at every game." He always made a special effort when he saw me to speak. Oh, how I loved his smile and the way he cared himself. I will miss him!"
"My most endearing memory of my father is captured in a photograph (a photograph now lost). I was a wee-one, think under 1 years old with casts on both legs coming up to my baby knees. A flower painted on the outer-side of each cast (1 tulip, 1 rose). My father holding me in his arms...talking of course, trying to get or keep my attention."
Have a suggestion for us?
