Stephen “Butch” Charles Williams III

“Stephen Charles Williams III, 65, of Beaver Falls, PA, transitioned peacefully in the comfort of his home in New Castle, PA, on Thursday, April 7, 2022.

Stephen was born on November 25, 1956, in East Liverpool Ohio, to Anna Elizabeth Williams and Stephen Charles Williams II. He was a student at Beaver Falls High School and worked for many years in his own car detailing business.

Stephen, affectionately known as “Butch” or “Butchie-Steve,” was an avid traveler, a world-class Air Drummer, and the life-of-the-party in any room he entered. He was a go-getter with an electric spirit that would, in his words, “Kill a brick, choke a stick, and drown a glass of water” to provide for his family. His joyous, incomparable spirit will be missed by many.

He is preceded in death by both parents, one daughter, Atalaya Williams; two siblings, Emily Joyce Smith and Daryl Williams; and one special niece, Robin Hill Owens.

He is survived by his ex-wife, Victoria Kirkland; his children, Maurice (Lori) Harris, Ashton Williams, Kyleigh Williams, Jalaya Williams, and one additional daughter; two step-children, Patrisha Lee-Rodrigguez, and Jordan Kirkland; nine grandchildren, Nevaeh Harris, Maurice Harris II (Moe Moe,) Keenan Harris, Di’Nari Harris, Ahmari Williams, Quazamir Lee, Jordan Kirkland II, Jospeh Kirkland, and Nathaniel Kirkland; three siblings, Richard Williams, Candace Davis-Williams, and Toni Foster; a devoted friend, Laura Dale; and a host of beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

A viewing honoring his life will be held from 2pm-4pm on Wednesday, April 13, 2022, at Washington Funeral Home, 1411 6th Avenue, Beaver Falls, PA 15010. A funeral service will follow for family and close friends.”
