Obituary

After a long fight with cancer, Michael Terance Williams died on June 10, 2022 in Oklahoma City, OK. He was 62. Mike leaves behind his ornery and beloved wife of 31 years, Carol Witt Williams; his children, Paul (Dani) Williams and Christina (Jarrod) Johnson; his parents, Ralph and Martha Williams of Niles, OH; his siblings Elizabeth Kelly (Russell) Brown of Henderson, TX, Jeffrey (Kelli) Williams of Lewis Center, OH, and Matthew (Mark Hollern) Williams of Grandview Heights, OH; four nieces and nephews; and five grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his sister, Christina Louise Williams.

Born on September 16, 1959 in Warren, OH, Mike was a two-month “Irish twin” to his sister, Kelly. In 1977, he graduated from Howland High School where he had been a member of the wrestling team. He joined the United States Air Force and was posted to Cheyenne, WY. After an honorable discharge, he relocated to Oklahoma City in 1981 where he met and married the love of his life, Carol. They married on August 20, 1991 and lived happily in Choctaw, OK the rest of his days.

Mike served the citizens of Oklahoma City as a police officer first with Oklahoma University Hospital Medical Police and then until retirement in 2022 with the Oklahoma City Police Department. He worked 10 years in the patrol division in the Hefner division followed by 20 years in investigations, the last 17 of them in the auto-theft unit. During his long career, he earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in criminal justice. He taught auto theft at the academy for the past several years and was a field training officer in investigations. Mike touched the lives of many Oklahoma City citizens and colleagues during his career, and the loss of his wisdom and kindness is a great loss to them all.

Boating, deer hunting, and spending time with his family were among Mike’s pastimes. He spent many days at his place on Lake Eufaula and was very involved in improving the community there. When he was home, he loved to tinker with his “toys” and work on the house. His love of Harley’s he got from his dad.

The family thanks the fourth-floor staff at OU Health—Edmond Medical Center and Dr. Ankur Mody. They took wonderful care of Mike during his illness and were especially kind.

Friends may call on his family to celebrate Mike’s life and to pay their last respects at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 17, 2022 at Bill Eisenhour Funeral Home, 8805 NE 23rd St., Oklahoma City, OK.
