Condolences to the Family of Robert M. Williams

Robert Marshall Williams, 77, of Corinth, NY, passed away on February 19, 2023.

Bob was born at the family farmhouse on October 23, 1945, in Madison, NY. He was the third of seven children born to William and Evelyn Williams.

Bob loved music and was voted Best Dancer in High School. His love of music continued on with the Corinth Theater Guild for several years. It was not unusual to arrive at the farm to hear Bob singing in his finest voice. He worked as a meat cutter, dairy farmer, social worker, Sunday school teacher, entrepreneur, and racehorse owner. Bob's love for horses began at an early age and continued into adulthood having raced standardbreds at Saratoga Harness, Monticello, Vernon Downs, Yonkers Raceway, and numerous county fairs. He also had a passion and love for working with handicapped children at ARC.

Bob is survived by four children from his first marriage: Mark, Kelly, Robin, and Jeffrey; four step-children from his second marriage: AJ Heller, Christopher Heller, Alysse Heller Kasowski, and Eric Heller; several grandchildren, nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, grand-nephews, and his long-time partner Tamara DeStanko.

Bob loved his family, friends, and farm. He will be missed by all.

Funeral services will be conducted 6:30 p.m. Friday, February 24, 2023, at Brewer Funeral Home, Inc., 24 Church St., Lake Luzerne.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Bob's memory may be directed to the Estherville Animal Shelter, 100 Russell Rd., Greenfield Center, NY, 12833.
