Obituary for Thomas “Crow” James Williams


Monday, May 9, 2022, Thomas “Crow” James Williams, of Oak Ridge, TN peacefully went home to glory after a hard-fought battle with liver cancer at the Diversicare Hospice in Oak Ridge, TN. Tommy was born in Oak Ridge, TN, March 23, 1961 to the Mr. Donald Avery currently of Seattle, Washington and the late Ms. Della Mae Williams.

Tommy was preceded in death by his mother, Ms. Della Mae Williams; aunt, Ms. Mary Elizabeth Williams; sisters, Ms. Mary Elizabeth Martin and Ms. Jo Ann Williams; grand niece, Shavea Unique Eddins-Anderson.

Tommy was a kind and reserved person who loved being an American. Whenever you saw him, you saw the American colors for his love of country. He was a diehard Dallas Cowboys and Alabama Crimson Tide football fan. He played football in Pee Wee league, Jefferson Junior High School and Oak Ridge High School where he graduated in 1980. But, his love was body building.

Tommy was a gentle giant who loved to workout in his younger years. He competed in bodybuilding and loved to workout, especially with his longtime friend, Jeremiah Henderson. He also loved cars, which he drove a 1970 Pontiac GTO convertible. He was also a butcher and cook for various jobs he had at Edward’s Restaurant, Ryan’s, Food City, Double Tree and Kroger.

Although Tommy was not a churchgoer, like the thief on the cross next to Jesus, he surrendered to God and gave his life to Christ, April 24, 2022 and all the angels rejoiced because surely, he will be in paradise with our Savior! This is a testament of God’s love and grace to allow us even in our final hour to repent and come to Christ. All who have spoken of him knew him as a quiet
and kind-hearted person. He will truly be missed, but never forgotten because he is with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Family will receive friends, 1:00- 1:30 p.m., Friday at Oak Ridge Memorial Park; graveside service, 1:30 p.m., Elder Darris Waters, Officiating.
