They called Evanston home until 1972, when they relocated to Cheyenne.  
Joe retired from working for the Union Pacific Railroad, and post retirement he  worked as a skilled lapidary, enjoying rock-hounding, making jewelry and knives.  As a proud Wyoming Native, he was an avid outdoorsman and loved fishing, hunting, camping, watching wildlife, and the Wyoming Cowboys.

Survived by his loving wife Elaine, sister Bonnie Louise Tousley, son Dale Wesley Williams, daughter and caregiver Kathy Williams-Meyers, 10 grandchildren, and 30 great-grandchildren.

I am so grateful for my Uncle Joe. I cant imagine my life without him. Nor can I imagine what kind of person I would be without his example, his kind humor and love. Families are forever so until we meet again.

Much love
