Craig D. Williams. was born on December 3, 1961, at St. Michaels hospital in Newark NJ, to David Glenn Williams and JoAnn E. Williams. 

Craig graduated from East Orange High School “Class of 1979”.  After high school, Craig enlisted into the U.S Army.  Upon his return from the military, Craig became gainfully employed with General Motors. Craig held several jobs over the years. He concluded his career, as an employee of BP Gas Station. Everyone knew him for working at the BP.  Craig was able to meet and greet people; to include old friends and acquaintances.  BP Gas Station afforded Craig the opportunity to demonstrate his love for people, as he worked. 

Craig loved the Lord and excepted Him as his personal Lord and Savior.

Craig David Williams , peacefully transitioned to his heavenly home, Monday March 20, 2023. 

Craig loved people. He would talk and help all whom he could. Craig loved kick boxing, roller skating, and riding motorcycles in his youthful days. Craig had several talents and gifts such as fixing cars (that his father David taught him over the years) and carpentry type work. Craig could fix just about anything. He was indeed a handy man. He could put a bathroom or a kitchen together, which he also learned from his father. 

Craig was a genuinely loving and caring person. He would help anyone and everyone he could.  Craig loved his children, family, and friends, Craig never missed an opportunity to speak positive about his family and close friends. Craig did his best to show up and support others in every event, when notified. 

Craig never missed the opportunity to tell his family and close friends that he loved them. His favorite saying when he didn't say he loved his male friends was, “You already know”.  Craig loved to talk and never met a stranger.  If you met him as a stranger, you let as a friend.  Craig was truly loved by many.

Craig Williams was preceded in death by his mother JoAnn E. Williams and Sister: Alesia F. Williams. 

Craig leaves to cherish his memories, his loving children: His son Anwar and daughter, Nyah Williams; His father, David Glenn Williams; Four grandchildren:  Eli M.
