Kerry Williams Obituary

On Thursday, February 1, 2024. Son of the late Kenneth T. and Shirley L. (Knotts) Williams. Beloved Husband of Joy (Marze) Williams. Loving Father of Devin Williams, Colin Williams and Darian (Daniel) Fitzgerald. Grandfather of Owen Fitzgerald. Brother of Kimberly A. (of the late Thomas) Fairley and the late Mathew J. (Sallie) Williams. 

A rebel by nature with an adventurous heart, Kerry left home right after high school graduation. Along with his motorcycle hooked to the back of his car, he headed west to California.   He lived there for many years based out of the Oakland/San Francisco area. After a couple of years working in California, he decided to attend The Seafarers Harry Lundeberg School of Seamanship in Piney Point Maryland.  Once he became a merchant marine, he began working in the engine room of cruise ships that sailed all over the world. He traveled to South America many times and the Ivory Coast in Africa. He left cruise life and started working at Plastocor based out of Hingham MA. another job where he traveled.  He moved back to Pittsburgh after marriage. Once Kerry had children, he left Plastocor so he could be home and became a boiler maker in Union 154.  

Kerry enjoyed the outdoors, hiking, fishing, target shooting, and even bird watching. He was an avid music lover and a dog lover. However, the most important thing to him was his family. He loved his three kids so much.  He took great pride in the adults that they had become.

Lastly, a sweet little boy named Owen made Kerry a grandfather.  Someone new to steal his heart. He took such delight in watching him grow and got a big kick out of him.       

We will miss our father, brother, uncle and friend Kerry very much.
