Pomfret Ctr, CT/Owensboro, KY – Tim grew up in Pomfret, CT. As a young boy, his nickname was “Big Tim,” because of his size! Tim graduated from Pomfret Community School and Putnam High School. After high school, he moved to Pine Bluff, AR to help run his Dad’s family grocery store. Realizing later that he wanted to do something different, Tim joined the Navy where he served for four years. His path later brought him to Owensboro, KY where he would become a carpenter and builder for many contractors in the area. He enjoyed fishing, riding motorcycles and listening to country music. Tim is survived by his daughter, Lyndsey (Michael) Simmons; his grandchildren, Ethan, Trey, Bentley, and Laikyn of Cave Springs, AR; his son, James Williams of New Mexico; his brothers, Jeffrey (Brenda) Cotnoir of Putnam, CT, Bruce Cotnoir of Webster, MA, Randy (Jenna) Williams of Marietta, GA. He was predeceased by his parents, the late Joyce (King) Williams of Danielson, CT and Arthur Ray Williams of Pine Bluffs, AR. Services and arrangements were private.
