Stone Mountain, GA

Johnny Willie Williams Jr., of Stone Mountain, GA, passed away on the 5th of February, 2024. Born on the 17 July, 1979 in Detroit, Michigan, he was a man whose smile brought everyone warmth, with his jovial spirit to all around him. Johnny will be remembered as a kind, humble, and lovable individual, his presence alone was a gift to those fortunate enough to have known him. Johnny gave his life to Christ at an early age, while attending Union Grace Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan. An alumnus of Miles College, Johnny possessed a desire for knowledge that can be compared to his passion for his favorite sports teams—the Detroit Lions and the Michigan Wolverines. Notable for his calm demeanor, you would also be invigorated by his immense enthusiastic and competitive nature while playing a good game of Spades or Bidwhist. His mother Scottie revered him as Solomon/Joseph because of his charisma, peacemaking, and forgiving heart. The most important thing in a man's life is confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of your life. ”that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.“ ??Romans? ?10?:?9? ?KJV?? You can choose to serve a God that gives you free will and if you don’t know what to do or say he has given us the Holy Ghost to lead and guide you. “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.“ ??John? ?14?:?26? ?KJV?? Johnny suffered in silence with many illnesses but he is at home with the Lord. He was truly loved and he showed love with his quiet and gentle spirit. Johnny (Jon Jon) leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories amongst his family: his loving son, Johnny Williams III; his doting step-daughter Alexandria Bryant, his devoted parents, Scottie Williams-Glass and Johnny Williams Sr., his steadfast brother & sister-in-law, Jamaine & Cheryllonna Williams; his adoring niece and nephew, Monjahla and Jamaine Williams II and his special friend Erica Davis and her family.

Raymond Willoch

location-icon

Stone Mountain, GA

Raymond Willoch, 90, passed away Friday, February 2, 2024, surrounded by family at his home in Stone Mountain, GA.Born in Norristown, PA on June 13, 1933, he was the son of the late Helge Willoch and Randi (Raaum) Willoch, both of Norway. "Ray" often reflected on the hand of Providence in his life. For example, as a boy growing up in Chattanooga, TN, he was chosen by an unidentified benefactor to receive a scholarship reserved for Boy Scouts to attend McCallie School (even though Ray was never involved in scouting.) While at McCallie, Ray's football skills earned him a scholarship to play for legendary coach Bobby Dodd and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Ray was a member of the 1952 National Championship Team and went on to play in 3 Sugar Bowls and one Cotton Bowl. The Yellow Jackets defeated UGA all 4 years Ray played for Tech, as he was fond of reminding his UGA friends. While at Georgia Tech, Ray was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity.During his senior year at Georgia Tech, an Agnes Scott College student by the name of Agnes "Mickey" Scott was attending a party at the Phi Delta Theta house with one of Ray's teammates. Upon seeing Mr. Willoch across the room, she turned to her date and asked, "Who is that?" The teammate obliged an introduction, and the following year, Mickey became Mrs. Raymond Willoch in a ceremony at Decatur Presbyterian Church.Upon graduation, Ray and Mickey moved to Panama City, FL to fulfill his ROTC commitment in the U.S. Air Force. Returning to Metropolitan Atlanta, Ray found employment at his father-in-law's company, Georgia Duck and Cordage Mill. There, he rose from salesman to eventual Chairman and CEO. Along the way, he led the transition from textile product manufacturing to becoming a vertically integrated producer of conveyor belting, and secured the first contracts with customers like UPS. In 1998, he oversaw the successful sale of the company to an international competitor.Ray was a born leader with premature silver hair and an executive demeanor. He was measured and observant, with a sharp wit, winsome charm, and generous nature. His presence offered a sense of order and stability. He was a tireless elder at his beloved Decatur Presbyterian Church where he chaired countless committees. He was a faithful President of the Decatur Rotary Club and a long-time member of Druid Hills Golf Club. Ray excelled at tennis, golf, and bridge, and he rarely missed a geography question in Trivial Pursuit.Most of all, Ray cherished family. He sponsored numerous beach trips and global excursions, each one a thinly-disguised enticement to bring family together. His final days were spent surrounded by a congregation of children, grandchildren, and extended family who exchanged memories and basked in the triumph of a life well-lived. In addition to his parents, Ray was preceded in death by his brother, Richard Willoch. Ray is survived by his beloved wife of 68 years, Mickey; children Susan Willoch Shaver of Palm Desert, CA, Raymond S. Willoch of Fort Collins, CO, and Lisa Willoch Ortlip (Ben) of Cumming, GA; grandchildren, Jennifer Penta (Fabio), Betsy Coxwell (Jesse), Scott Willoch (deceased), Bryan Willoch, Price Willoch, Ellen Stinson (Graeme), Kathryn Ortlip, Jane Ortlip, Karsten Ortlip, Rachel Ortlip, Adam Ortlip, Stefan Ortlip, and Aaron Ortlip; great-grandchildren Connor Coxwell, Ella Ray Coxwell, Brooklyn Penta, Savannah Coxwell, Noah Coxwell, and Atticus Bjorn Willoch.A private interment service is planned for 12:00 p.m., February 14, 2024 at Decatur Cemetery followed by a memorial service at 1:00 p.m., February 14, 2024 at Decatur Presbyterian Church. A reception will follow in the Church Parlor.
