In Loving Memory of Ezekiel Rashawn Williams 

Erwin, North Carolina, and the hearts of all who knew him, mourn the untimely passing of a beloved son, friend, and cherished soul, Ezekiel Rashawn Williams. Born on February 23, 1995, Ray's radiant light was tragically extinguished on August 10, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of kindness, joy, and love.

Ray's life was a testament to the beauty of family and friendship. His warm smile and gentle spirit touched the lives of everyone fortunate enough to cross his path. A true embodiment of compassion, Ray's heart overflowed with love for his family and friends. He found joy in their company, and his presence alone could brighten the darkest of days.

A special bond existed between Ray and his mother—a connection that words could scarcely capture. Their unbreakable tie was a testament to the depth of their love and the strength of their relationship. Through life's ups and downs, their unwavering support for one another was a beacon of hope and an inspiration to all.

Ray had a unique fascination with butterflies—a symbol of transformation, beauty, and the delicate nature of life. In these graceful creatures, he found a reflection of his own spirit—a soul that embraced change and appreciated life's fleeting moments. His affinity for butterflies became a source of inspiration for those who knew him, a reminder to cherish every fluttering heartbeat.

Ray knew how to have a good time like no other. He reveled in the simple joys of life, relishing each laughter-filled moment with his loved ones. Whether it was a gathering with friends or a family celebration, Ray's vibrant energy and infectious laughter could turn any occasion into a cherished memory.
