Stephen Dennis Williams (Denny, Deputy Dawg) ~ March 31, 1938 - April 29, 2019. Denny went home to be with Jesus and is survived by his wife of 55 years, Donna Amason Williams, and three daughters, Rhonda Heffernan, Sabrina Risken, Julie Stoddard (Larry), and three amazing grandchildren, Stiles Stoddard, Ireland Williams, and Kellyn Heffernan.

He is also survived by his sister Geraldine Wilson, brothers Wallace, David, and Donald Williams, and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his mom and dad, David Archie Williams and Mary Alma Wooldridge, two brothers, J.D. Williams and L.C. Williams (Sugarfoot), and baby sister, Marjorie Blanche.

He always had a kind word or a silly joke to brighten someone's day. Those who knew him got a laugh out of his numerous "natural" cures for ailments. He loved his trips to Colorado, and around the state of Texas investigating his ancestry. He enjoyed anything outdoors and working in his garden. He loved his camping trips to the beach with his family. Being on the water around the Texas coast brought him peace and happiness throughout his whole life.

Denny was a lifelong shrimper and Seadrift resident, exceptional father, amazing grandfather, and faithful husband. He will be missed by all those who loved him.

Flowers are welcome, but in lieu of flowers, you may make donations in Denny's name to Friends of Aransas and Matagorda Island National Wildlife Refuge, and prayers are also welcome.

Funeral Services will by on Friday, May 3, 2019 at Grace Funeral Chapel in Port Lavaca at 2:00 pm with Barry Williams presiding. Burial will follow at Seadrift Cemetery. Pallbearers are Diane Wilson (lifelong friend), David Wilson (great nephew), Dustin Williams (great nephew), Neal Kennedy (great nephew), Jay Kennedy (great nephew), and Stiles Stoddard (grandson).

Arrangements entrusted to the personal care of Grace Funeral Chapel.
