Obituary for Lawrence Edward Williams

Lawrence Edward Williams, age 83, of Batavia NY, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 30th at the Village Greens of LeRoy with his family and friends by his side.

Larry, a graduate of Batavia High School, married Beverly Williams in 1959. Larry and Beverly went on to have two daughters, and three grandsons whom he called his own. Larry, a retired worker for the City of Batavia, accomplished much in his life. His selfless character and work ethic were indomitable and would go on to shape his friends, colleagues, and the stone and motor entrance to Redfield parkway. Most notable in recent years was his role as Santa Claus. He cherished the opportunity to spread his love and laughter to the people of Genesee County during the holidays.

Larry loved to travel, camp, and create unforgettable memories with his family. Always up for adventure, a four-week nine-person cross country roadtrip in a motorhome that sleeps six was not out of the ordinary. He took fashion cues from no one, and delivered us a unique sense of style. Always quick with a joke and helping hand, Larry loved to spend time with his three grandsons. His pastimes included, but were not limited to, Yankees baseball, people watching on the porch, and sharing his sense of humor with you. While raising five children across two generations he would often call out to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, and now he has answered that call. Larry redefined the label “Dad” as a Father, Grandfather, but more so as a Best Friend. The family would like to thank the loving staff of the Village Greens for their friendship and support. Larry is survived by his two daughters: Michelle Williams and Laurie Comer, his three boys: Sean Comer, Derek Comer, and Cameron Comer, and his favorite son-in-law, Mark Moscicki.
