Stephen Bart Williams was born on July 2, 1982. He was taken from us far too soon, on November 16, 2020.
Left to grieve his passing are devoted wife and exemplary caregiver, Karen (Certo) Williams; parents Bart and Mary Ann Williams; sisters and brother-in-laws Kristen (Chris) Bragg, Lindsy (Ross) Golub; nephews and niece, Brady, James, Ali and Eli, and many aunts, uncles and close cousins.
Steve attended Ellet High School and The University of Akron. He was employed for many years at Sam's Club. Throughout those years he made some truly incredible friendships.
Steve was a loving husband, son, brother and adoring uncle, known as "Uncle Beve". He was caring, honest and fiercely independent. He had a great sense of humor and always entertained us with his quick, dry wit. Steve left a lasting impression on anyone who knew him. He will be sorely missed by both his immediate and extended Williams, Oreskovich and Certo families.
The family would like to thank the staff at Akron General McDowell Cancer Center, as well as Cleveland Clinic Hospice nurses, Mandy and Kellie.
What Cancer Cannot Do
Cancer is so limited
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirit
Due to the current health crisis, a celebration of life will be held at a later date. Rest in peace, Steve. We love you so much.
