Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. Let us remember with thanksgiving what God has done through His servant Charles Lowell Williams.

Charles Lowell Williams of Hardin was born at home near Boyd, Montana on Sept. 13, 1930 to parents John Williams and Anna (Lorash) Williams. He graduated from Joliet High School and went on to a technical college in Chicago, where he received his education in electronics. He then was drafted into the U.S. Navy, where he served his country during the Korean War. After being honorably discharged from the Navy, he entered civilian life with AT&T, where he worked for several years before retiring in 1984.

He was united in holy marriage to Nannie Matchett on June 11, 1957 and blessed with 41 years of marriage until her death in 1998. God also blessed them with the gift of a child, Karen Ann Williams.

On Nov. 17, 2018, God called Charles home to heaven. He is survived by sisters Viola and Patricia; brothers Vern, Ronald, William and Melvin; daughter Karen (David) Chepulis; grandchildren Mark (Amy) Chepulis, Lori (Cory) Parker and Sara (Matthew) Thompson; and greatgrandchildren Katherine, Eli, Caleb, “Baby Chepulis,” Avigail, Alexis, Ezekiel, Robyn and Ophelia. He is preceded in death by his parents; his wife Nannie; sister Laura; and brothers John, Ray, Donald and Elmer. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord. We give thanks to God our Father through Jesus Christ, our Lord, for our brother, Charles Lowell Williams.

Funeral services were held Wednesday at the Redeemer Lutheran Church. Interment with military honors followed in the Hardin Fairview Cemetery. Bullis Mortuary was entrusted with the arrangements.
