In Memory of
Harold R. Williams
December 12, 2015
I am writing to inform you of the passing of my dad,
Harold R. Williams. He worked for the Port Authority of
NY and NJ for over 35 years and he LOVED his job.
He retired in 1994 and continued to spread joy and his
immeasurable love of all things Port Authority until he
passed away on December 12, 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.
Harold Williams was born in New York, NY and later went
on to serve proudly in the US Army fighting in the
Korean War before returning to NY to work for The Port
Authority of NY and NJ. . He is survived by his wife of
55 years, Loyce Williams, four sons, Harold Jr., Hugh,
Lloyd and Leon, his sister Alberta Thomas, two
granddaughters and a brand new great grandson.
One of my absolute favorite memories of my dad was when
we were kids and we would drive over any bridge or
through any tunnel in and around New York and New Jersey
and he would quiz everyone in the car to make sure we
always knew exactly which bridge we were on. What a
great memory to have whenever entering a tunnel or
bridge. A great man with an incredible work ethic and a
booming baritone voice that would make even the iciest
of women swoon.
