ANDERSON -- God’s master plan was fulfilled in the life of Clayton Williams on June 20, 2014, at St. Vincent Hospital, Indianapolis. He transitioned home to be with the Lord after a sudden illness.

Clayton was born in Montgomery County, Ala., to the late Rushus Williams Sr. and Willie Bell Ford-Boose. Clayton was a graduate of Dunbar High School. He extended his education by taking courses at Anderson University.

Clayton was a member of the United Auto Workers Local 662 and he was employed for 35 years with General Motors before his retirement.

Clayton’s prize possession was loving and educating his children, grandchildren and many others. He also took great pleasure from vacationing with his grandchildren. Clayton was a devoted runner and health fanatic. He also loved driving the school bus No. 418 for Highland Jr. High and Erskine Elementary and learning different skills.

Survivors include his loving wife of 38 years, Lucinda (Wright) Williams; three daughters, Kathi Denise and Candice Genese Williams of Anderson and Tari Wilkins of Indianapolis; two sons, Brian Collier Sr. of Decatur, Ala., and Darryl Williams of Atlanta, Ga.; eight grandchildren, Brian Jr., Da’Twaon Tayron Collier, Sullie Livingston of Anderson, Tobias Collier of Decatur, Ala., Darryl Jr., Joshua and Nicholas Williams of Atlanta, Ga.; brothers Henry (Peggy) Williams of Marietta, Ga., Willie Boose, Rudy (Imma) Williams Jr., and Donald Jones, all of Anderson, and Robert (Linda) Jones of Jacksonville, Fla.; two sisters, Dorothy (John) Fletcher and Annie (Lovell) Wilkerson of Anderson; stepmother Albertine Williams of Chicago, Ill.; brothers-in-law, Roosevelt (Mae) Wright and Charles Parks, all of Anderson; along with a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, church family and friends.
