Steven R. Williams, Sr. was born on March 13, 1964 to proud parents Dorothy Mae Williams (nee Hicks) and Charles Allen Williams. Throughout his life, Steve attended Berkeley City College, UC Berkeley and Cosmetology school; the latter of which led him to becoming a barber/hair stylist in the Bay Area for over 30 years. He was also a mainstay at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum/Oracle Arena for many years a security guard and was very popular among his co-workers and fans alike. His other interests included coaching, bowling, photography and sports. Even with all of the things Steve was part of in his life, his family was the most important thing to him.
He departed this earthly life on October 17, 2017 in Oakland, CA. It is quite fitting that on the same day the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors were to receive their championship rings, Steve received his Heavenly crown; as he too was a champion to everyone who knew him. He is survived by his children Kimberlyn Williams and Steven R. Williams, Jr., as well as a host of relatives and friends.
There will be a viewing for Steve on Thursday, October 26, 2017 from 4:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M. and a Homegoing Celebration on Friday, October 27, 2017 at Cosmopolitan Baptist Church 988 85th Avenue, Oakland, CA 94621.
Interment will be private.
