Floyd Lee Williams, Sr, 82, of Sedalia, MO, passed away at his home on Wednesday, October 13, 2021. On June 20, 1939, he was born in Glenn Allen, MS, a son of Alex Williams and Estella (Mason) Williams, who preceded him in death.

On November 17, 1972, in Sedalia, MO, he was united in marriage to Sandra Kay Christian, who resides in the home.

Floyd became saved at a very young age and always put God first. He served honorably in the U.S. Air Force. His work history included Sedalia Ice and Cold Storage, Skagg's Drug Store, Town and Country Shoes, State Fair Community College, and Co-Owner of Downtown Lounge and Magic City Night Club.
