Mr. James Davis Williams

Mr. James Davis Williams was born December 8, 1939, in Rosston Arkansas. James was the second of eight children born to Mr. Dave and Mrs. Alberta Williams, both of whom preceded him in death.

Mr. Williams served faithfully in the United States Army and received an Honorable Discharge for his years of service. Mr. Williams attended and completed high school and upon being discharged from the service, he attended California State University at Sonoma, where he studied Horticulture.  After his studies in horticulture, Mr. Williams opened and operated a landscape business, which was located in San Rafael, California.
