Tony Williams born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 24, 1962, to Amos Lee Williams, Sr. (who preceded him in death) and Marlene Williams. Tony was a member of Powell Chapel United Methodist Church, LaFayette, Alabama. This is where he was baptized and accepted Christ as his personal savior at an early age. Tony received his education at Southside Elementary and LaFayette High School in LaFayette, Alabama. Tony had many jobs over the years. He really enjoyed working at Ampex and Kardoes Rubber Company. BUT! The greatest job of all was being a loving and caring father to his children. In 1993 Tony relocated to Atlanta, Georgia where he made it his home. Tony was somewhat a quiet man with a big heart. He loved reading his Bible because he had a special relationship with God. He also loved playing his guitar, working out and listening to music. His favorite band was the SOS Band (Tell me if you still care). Tony really loved caring for others, especially his mother and he really had special love for his nieces and nephews.
