HAW RIVER Surrounded by family, Aubrey Ray Williams, 68, of Haw River, passed away Sunday, January 21, 2018, in the comfort of his home. Ray is survived by Sandy Williams, his wife of 43 years; four children, Michelle Jefferson and her fiancé Richie Bare, Cassie Roberts and her husband Nile Roberts, Shea Foster and her husband Todd Foster, and Jeremiah Williams and his wife Kaela Williams; one brother, J.R. Williams, and three sisters, Nancy Henley, Kaye Murphy, Ann Pugh; eight grandchildren, Marlin Foster, Madison Foster, Lily Foster, Tori Roberts, Parker Foster, Kaitlyn Jefferson, Marrok Roberts, and Dylan Foster. He was preceded in death by his brothers Ronnie and Donnie and his parents, Buck and Mannie Williams. The beloved father of four, brother of six, "Popper" of eight, and friend to many, Ray courageously battled glioblastoma, a rare form of brain cancer, for six months prior to his passing. His courage, faith, and positivity were an inspiration to all who knew and loved him. Ray was born July 30, 1949, and grew up in Greensboro, NC. He graduated from Ben Smith High School. Ray enjoyed traveling the world and spending time with his family and friends. One of his greatest joys in life was being "Popper" to his eight grandchildren. Ray lived a very full life and touched the lives of many. Ray's favorite hobbies included fishing, golf, playing the drums, cooking, and spending time at the beach. The family would like to express their thanks and love to the incredible staff at Duke Medical Center and Hospice. Visitation will be held Tuesday from 6 until 8 p.m., at Lowe Funeral Home in Burlington, NC, and a celebration of life service will be held on Wednesday, January 24 at 11 a.m. at Lamb's Chapel in Haw River. At other times, the family will be gathering at the Williams home. Memorials may be made to any Hospice of your choice. You may sign the online register book at www.lowefuneralhome.com.

Ray is one of many friends I had during my high school days.  We as a group were very lucky to have so many friends. Condolences to his family. He will never be forgotten. Cherish his memory and remember all of the good and special things he did for you.  Barry Oakley
