My thoughts and prayers are with you & yours during this time of bereavement.

I believe this man worked with my father at Sears Roebuck in Wooster in the early 1970s. My parents always thought of him as a friend, and our lives were richer having known him, although it was a long time ago. May his family and friends feel God's comfort and presence during this time.

My sincere sympathy to all Mr. Williams' family & friends. Booker T. & Maeretha were wonderful people and the best neighbors I've ever had. I love & will miss them both.

I worked with Booker in the striping room at Bell & Howell. He was a hard worker that loved to sing, and always had a smile on his face. My sympathy and prayers go out to his family and friends. God bless and keep on singing Booker.....

I am sincerely sorry for the loss of your father. My prayers go out to you and your family during this time. May you have peace of mind knowing that he is resting peacefully with God.

I knew Booker when he used to deliver stuff for Sears and then later on I worked with him at Bell & Howell. He was a really great guy and we had a lot of laughs together. He used to sing a lot at work. He had an amazing voice. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. May his memories be with his family and friends forever.

To Reida, Terry, Gordon and my nephew Darius, other family and close friends, I have some of the fondest memories spent with your entire family and the loss of Mr. Booker T, though difficult, is worth rejoicing and Hallelujah praise, because like Mrs. Maeretha, I know Mr. Booker T will be told "Servant, Well Done" upon his arrival in heaven. I love you guys; you ARE my family and I pray that the Lord continues to strengthen your faith and love during this sensitive time.

Booker was a very good example of what a Christian should be. I feel my life was enriched by having the pleasure to have known Booker and Maeretha as neighbors and friends. Booker was always a pleasure to talk with and I enjoyed his moments of laughter that we shared; he had a terrific smile. Never heard an unkind word. He will be truly missed by all who had the pleasure to have known him. May he rest in peace. I extend my deepest sympathy to Williams' Family. May God give you comfort and watch over you.

So sorry for your lost you all in our thoughts and prayers Booker T will be missed by all of us miss seeing him on the porch and mowing that lawn always a kind words to all
