Louis Dentison (L.D.) Williams, 68, left us to be with the Lord on November 23, 2018. He was surrounded by family. Born February 19, 1950 in Little Rock Arkansas to the late Louis Edward Williams and Essie Marie (Counts) Williams. He is also preceded in death by his sister, Pat Brown. The youngest of 3 siblings, he was always an artistic and musical spirit. Beginning at the age of 5, he played in a gospel band on the radio with his mom and sisters and even at such a young age, commanded an audience with his energy and charisma. He met the love of his life, his wife Gail (Bakalekos) Williams at the age of 18. Together, they had two beautiful daughters and embarked on 50 years of marriage. He was a very special man with a bright spirit that celebrated life, God, his family and friends. He touched so many people through his talent, love for life, and music. L.D. never met a stranger and always knew the right moment to lighten the room with his sense of humor.
