Family members say Williams had been married for a year to his high school sweetheart Shamra Williams, and had recently started his first job.
“Our hearts are aching more than words can describe and the pain is deep. The world lost an incredible man, son, brother, friend, and devoted husband,” a family member wrote on a GoFundMe page. “… You can only imagine what (Shamra) is now up against. His mom, dad (Amanda and Travis Williams) and 7 siblings will forever have a hole in their hearts as well.”
The GoFundMe page was created to help Shamra with financial expenses following the crash. Click here to donate.
