Leon Williams, Jr. Obituary

Leon Williams, age 92, of Providence Point, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, November 30, 2023. He was born in Pittsburgh to the late Leon and Estelle Williams, and was the loving husband for 69 years of Betty “Bee” Williams. He graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School and Penn State University. His family included daughter, Bebe Tonks who preceded him in death last year, sons Leon "Tres" and wife Karen, of Hickory, North Carolina and Nathaniel and wife, Kendra, of Auburn, California; grandchildren, Alicia Tonks, Noelle Tonks Nuzzo (Daniel); Corynn Williams, Kate Ott (Tyler), Cassandra Williams; Wyatt, Savanah and Teselah Williams; great-grandchildren, Max, Colt, and Duke Johnson; Gianna Nuzzo, Veda Ott and the late Jacob Johnson; sisters, Gwynne Williams (John Grose) and the late Joyce Wrobel (Theodore, surviving), and his many  nieces and nephews. His long career with Babb Inc. enabled him to use his God-given gifts of love and encouragement as he specialized in service to the disability community. As an over 55- year member of Mt. Lebanon Evangelical Presbyterian Church, he served on many boards; was a Sunday School teacher and mentor; Stephen Ministry “listening ear;” and a faithful member of the choir. Sports were also important to him – tennis, golf, hiking and skiing- as well as being handyman to his growing family. Viewing hours have been omitted. His Memorial Service in Mt. Lebanon Evangelical Presbyterian Church will be held in the spring. Gifts in memory of Leon can be made to MLEPC, 255 Washington Road, Pittsburgh, PA 15216 or to  Providence Point Benevolence Fund, 500 Providence Point Blvd., Pittsburgh, PA 15243.
