(Donna Sexton) Williamson of Wilsonville; 5 grandchildren, 9 great-grandchildren; and one sister, Linda Mulligan of Cottage Hills. 

He was preceded in death by a daughter, Carlene Williamson; his parents; four sisters, Maxine Garrison, Donna Jane McMonigle, Roberta “Bert” Eberhart, and Dorothy “Dot” Young.
