Gordon “Dale” Williams, 90, of Monclova, OH, passed away suddenly on Friday, June 5, 2020 at Otterbein Monclova SeniorLife Neighborhood after a full life. He will be greatly missed. He was born on September 7, 1929 in Indianapolis, IN to Walter and Mary (Keller) Williams, the oldest of three. Dale married Doris Elmore on June 11, 1951 and together they raised 3 daughters. They were married for over 66 years until Doris passed away in 2017.
Dale graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from DePauw University, Greencastle, IN. He was a born salesman, working for several companies over the years and involving some rather large territories of responsibility. He was an avid tennis player, bowler, and card player, particularly duplicate bridge. The Sylvania and Maumee Senior Centers were a great blessing in his later years, as well as Jim, Sally, and the caring staffs at Sunset House, Parkcliffe, and Otterbein. He enjoyed traveling, fishing, gardening, singing and listening to music, telling jokes, and reading. Dale especially enjoyed dancing with Doris in their younger years. He was very attached to Rascal, his last Shih Tzu until she passed away in 2018. He was a regular attendee of Washington Church in Toledo, OH.
Dale is survived by daughters Sherrie (David) Humphrey, Colleen (Keith) Fawcett and Rhonda (Brad) Ross; brother Kent (Shirley) Williams, sister Carole (Carl “Bill”) Matthews, sister-in-law Sandy (Roy) Elmore; grandchildren Heather (Kevin) Radzinski, Mark (Melani) and Todd (Brittany) Humphrey, Emily (Adam) Lum, Tyler (Courtney) Southard; 15 great grandchildren; and various nieces, nephews and other relatives/friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, wife Doris, brother-in-law Roy Elmore, grandson Brett Frizzell, and other cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
