Glenn S. Williams, 95, of Collis Lane, passed away peacefully in the early morning of Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022.
Glenn was born to Richard and Mable (Fiske) Williams in Greenfield on June 18, 1927. On August 3, 1957, he married Vivian A. (Roberts) Williams and has lived
in Colrain for the last 64 years. He worked as a salesman for Lodge Tire in Greenfield for 35 years before retiring. Glenn also served as a member and platoon
leader of the Massachusetts National Guard for seven years.
Glenn enjoyed traveling and loved the outdoors. He especially enjoyed fishing and hunting with his beloved beagles and his son, Mark. Much of his time was spent at the family camp located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. He often reminisced and laughed about the ridiculous antics of the ‘guys up North’. He also spent countless hours watching wildlife around his home, particularly his songbirds. And he kept beautiful flower gardens. Glenn was known for his brambling rose bushes and bright blossoms.
He leaves behind the fond memories of his famous dilly beans and fierce skills at the card table, a legacy that will one day be passed down to his great grandchildren.
Glenn was kindhearted, thoughtful, and was always the first to crack a joke. Above all, Glenn loved his family. In recent years, there was nothing he adored more
than cruising around in his golf cart with his great grandchildren, watching the latest generation of fish in his pond, and simply sharing his time in good company with a fresh lit cigar.
Among those survived by Glenn are his wife Vivian, his sister June, his son Mark, his two granddaughters Berry and Rosie, and his three great grandchildren
Jack, Isla and Leo.
A graveside service will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, at 11:00 am in North River Cemetery in Colrain. There are no calling hours.
