Louis T. Williams, April 5, 1936 to Nov. 26, 2010 passed away November 26th, after a brave battle with lung cancer. Louie was known for his kindness and generosity and will be missed by all who knew him. He was born in San Diego. After spending his childhood in Maine, he joined the United States Marine Corps and served his country proudly. Later in life he returned to San Diego, finally settling in Ocean Beach. He is survived by his wife Kathi (a longtime O.B. resident), daughter Simone and son-in-law Mike, grandchildren Yvette, Ricky and Phillip, six great grandchildren, sister Ronnie and brother in-law Cecil, brother Russ and sister-in-law Vicky, in addition to a large extended family, almost everyone in OB. Louie will always be remembered by the Ocean Beach community for his love of yard sales, antiques, playing pool and the beautiful “Hidden” garden, that was featured at a Ocean Beach Historical Program and at the end of the Historical walks over the last few years. He and his garden were featured on Wonderland, had won awards, and enchanted all that visited his Hidden Garden.”

A celebration of Louie’s life was held December 1st at Beardsley-Mitchell Funeral Home, where tears met smiles in the many fond and humorous memories of Louis. The thoughts of his flowers will forever be in our hearts
