September 24, 1954 ~ October 9, 2022

Born in: Houston, TX
Resided in: Montgomery, TX

Mike Williams, a devoted husband, dedicated father, and loving grandfather, passed away in the early hours of Sunday, October 9th, 2022. After several years battling illness and courageously fighting right up until the end, he passed away peacefully in his sleep amongst loved ones.

Mike was born to Carl and Margaret Williams on September 24th, 1954 in Houston, Texas. He grew up in Humble, Texas where he would graduate from Humble High School. He would then go on to attend Texas A&M University and graduate with a degree in Marketing as part of the class of 1977. While attending A&M, Mike would meet the love of his life, Janet. Mike would propose two months after meeting her, and they would spend 44 wonderful years together.

Mike’s career in oil and gas allowed him and Janet to live all over including stops in Texas, Alaska, Wyoming, and England. It is no surprise that Mike picked up friends all along the way. Making long-lasting friendships was something he did easily because he was genuine, dependable, and always put others first. He always did the right thing by others. Always. Even when it was not the easy thing to do. Mike always led by example and taught others how to lead from the front and was an impeccable model of integrity. Described by others as a true southern gentleman. He was honest and fair, and he worked incredibly hard to provide for his family and to ensure he gave his children every opportunity to build successful lives of their own.

He enjoyed hunting and the outdoors, coaching and watching his kids play sports, watching Aggie football, and more than anything spending time with his family and working at the MAC Ranch. It was his small slice of heaven and a place he loved dearly.

Mike was a loving and devoted husband, a patient and affectionate father, and the greatest grandfather to his three grandchildren. Affectionately known as Bump by his grandkid, they were the light of his life and one of the things he was most proud of.

Mike was proceeded in death by his mother, Margaret Williams and his father, Carl Williams. He is survived by his wife Janet Williams; his sons Cody Williams; Matt Williams and his wife Kate Williams; his daughter Amy West and her fiancé Bobby Hale; his three grandchildren Macy West and Nolan and Barrett Williams; his sister Carla Novak, and niece Ashley Sutton.

  1. Mike was a good friend, former boss and such an inspiration. He had integrity to the max. Such an inspiration to everyone he knew. I will miss him greatly. Prayers to Janet and family.

  2. Williams family, we are so sorry to hear about the loss of Mr. Williams. We are praying for you all as you navigate through the loss of someone that meant so much to you. Praying the memories will fill your heart. Sending lots of love and prayers.

  3. I have always liked this poem which has been around for some time now. Godspeed Mike . . .

    Don’t cry for me, for now I’m free,
    I’m following the path God laid out for me.
    I took His hand when I heard Him call,
    I must turn my back now and leave it all.

    I could not stay another day,
    To laugh, to love, to work or play.
    Talks left undone must stay that way,
    I found a place at the close of day.

    If my passing has left a void,
    Then fill it with a remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
    Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
    I wish you all the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life’s been full, I savored much,
    Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
    Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your heart and share with me,
    God wanted me now, He set me free.

  4. Mike was a rock to so many. He always had a good story to tell and an important lesson to be learned from most of them. He was one of the best men I have had the pleasure of knowing. He will be missed by all of us. May he rest in peace.
    My prayers and thoughts are with the family.

  5. Mike was a giant of man literally and figuratively. He will be sorely missed. I am honored to know him and his wonderful family. I can’t help but imagine him in perfect health running around heaven squaring everything away, and asking more than a couple of questions.

  6. Mike was a big man with a big heart. He will be missed by everyone that had the pleasure of knowing him.
    I am praying for Janet and the family to find some peace and comfort in this very difficult time.

  7. To me Mike had that rare quality of a natural charisma that made you feel good just to be around him. Thanks for the memories Mike. You will be dearly missed.

  8. Mike was truly a fine gentleman, so well respected with the highest integrity and I was fortunate enough to meet him and do business with him through his great friend Tom Slaughter. My sincere condolences to all the Williams’ family in their loss. Heaven has gained a true warrior.
    God Bless,
    Billy Richey
