OBITUARY:

Earle A. Williams passed away at his home, Sunday evening March 6th . The beloved husband of Betty Jane (Szabo) Williams, he was ninety two years of age.

Born in Buffalo, New York, Earle was the youngest of three sons of the late Arthur J. and Lily (Wolff) Williams. Raised and educated in Buffalo, Earle was a graduate of Riverside High School along with the Class of 1942. Following high school Earle enlisted in the United States Navy. While in the Navy, Earle began studying radar engineering in Chicago. During his service time his focus was on airplanes, assisting with radar components.

Following the War, Earle and his long time friend from high school Betty Jane Szabo who served in the Army during the War, decided to marry. They honeymooned in New Hampshire then travelled cross country where they both attended and graduated from the University of California at Berkley. Earle received his Engineering Degree and shortly after graduation he secured a position with Philco in Philadelphia. Several years later he went to Camden, NJ with RCA. When they opened a new office in Burlington, Earle was the Program Electrical Engineer Manager of the historic Apollo Space Program. This was just one of his many successful accomplishments as an electrical engineer.

They raised two wonderful children, to whom he was most dedicated and proud of. Many of their family summer memories were made at Cape Cod where they spent many happy hours in their boat, fishing in the Atlantic. When day was done they would go back into the harbor, returning to their cottage and join with family and friends. Cookouts, lobster bakes and festivities surrounding them, as it was always reunion time with family! When the children graduated from high school they celebrated by taking a wonderful trip to Europe, visiting twelve different countries.

Earle also enjoyed and was very proud of his vegetable garden during summer and fall. All the different kinds of tomatoes and other chosen vegetables he would masterfully produce!

Throughout his life Earle dedicated himself to each new adventure. His family was always first and foremost, taking care of, providing and protecting was his mantra. A masterful engineer he was proud of all his accomplishments. Earle lived a long, happy and successful life, as a husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. A legacy that will forever be cherished.

Sadly Earle was predeceased by his parents and brothers Glenn and Ward Williams.
