Mark Clinton Williams

Published 12-8-13

ENID, OK — Mark Clinton Williams, son of Evelyn (Leigh) and Stewart F. Williams, was born June 15, 1946, in Greenwich, Conn. He departed this life on Thursday, Nov. 28, 2013, for that “big drag race” in the sky.

Mark moved to Alva in 1976, and went to work for Bob Coker Motor Co.

Later he was employed by Panhandle Eastern Pipeline, where he retired in 1992.

He then went to work for BNSF Railroad in 2002, and retired in June 2012. His last really “fun” job was with the NAPA Auto Parts store in Alva.

He was a picker, car builder and kind of a “jack of all trades.” Those who knew him certainly realized he had a great gift for gab!

He will be missed by his “Napa” kids, the crew at BNSF Railroad, his car family and man friends.

Mark’s greatest passion was his love of animals, six of whom survive him.

Mark is survived by his best friend, Donna of the home; his stepchildren, Kellie Dunkin Lane of Bloomington, Ind., and Ryan Dunkin of Dallas, Texas. Also surviving are his brother, Allan, and sister-in-law Lynn of Greensboro, N.C.

... Until we meet again.

A celebration of Mark’s life will be held sometime in June 2014.

Memorial contributions in his memory may be made to SPCA or the Wounded Warriors Project.
