Wilkes-Barre, PA

Loving son, husband, father and grandfather, Barry W. Williams, of Wilkes-Barre sadly left us on Monday, February 19, 2024 following a brief and sudden illness. He was the son of the late Florence and William Williams. He is survived by the love of his life, Jean Busch Williams. They enjoyed 59 years of marriage and were together for over six decades. Also surviving are is daughter and son-in-law, Wendy and Scott Vandegrift; son and daughter-in-law Gary and Debbie Williams; grandchildren, Wayne Kozak, Jr., Brett Dyanick, Captain Frankie Williams, US Army Reserves, Barry W. Kozak, Dylan Williams, Amanda Ditchey (who he liked to call Miss America) and her husband Brandon, Bradley Vandegrift; great granddaughter Lorelei Kozak. Also surviving is his sister, Janet Edwards and several nieces and nephews including his loving nephew Guy Williams. He will be missed by his best friend, Danny Mazur and special friend, Ron Lyons. Barry was a 1963 graduate of James M. Coughlin High School and attended many technical schools for Transco / Williams Co. As a teenager he began his career as a laborer and welders helper by working to build Transcontinental Gas Pipeline (now Williams Company) Station 515 in Buck Township. He started to work for the company on May 13, 1965 and continued to work there for 42 years as a control specialist and automation technician until his retirement in 2005. In his spare time he and his late father-in-law, Edward Kokina did taxidermy work for 35 years. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Taxidermy Association. Barry was an avid hunter and fisherman and he enjoyed building and painting cars and motorcycles with his son Gary and friend Danny. There were many nights spent playing guitar with his best friend Danny Mazur and they also took many road trips together on their Harleys. He loved to travel to other countries and go on cruises with his wife Jean. During his youth growing up in Parsons and Bear Creek he loved having many different pets. He had a monkey, sheep, pheasants, a fox, ducks, raccoons, and chickens to name a few. He especially enjoyed going to Abes’ Hot Dogs in Kingston. He was not a church going man but he said his prayers every night and blessed everyone, and this would take him over 45 minutes. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his brother, Charles Leroy Williams and his infant son, Barry Gene Williams. The family would like to thank Dr. Frank Olshemski for his many years of care. It is impossible to condense in a few paragraphs how much he meant to his family and how well he lived his life. He was the smartest, kindest, most loving, gentle, non-complaining person and will be sorely missed. The funeral will be held Saturday at 10:00 a.m. from E. Blake Collins Funeral Home, 159 George Avenue, Wilkes-Barre. Services will be conducted by Rev. K. Gene Carroll. Interment will be in Oak Lawn Cemetery, Hanover Township. Friends may call Friday from 5-8 p.m.
