Dexter Femi Williams
“Those who knew Dexter, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.”
With deepest sorrow, we announce that Dexter Williams (DJ), age 15 our most beloved son, brother, family member and friend passed suddenly on Thursday, July 23, 2020 from a tragic accident.
Those who knew Dexter, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.
Dexter will be missed everyday by his parents, Dexter and Prisca Williams, brothers, Kevin, Delyn, Dione, Dominque, Caleb, little Sister Makayla, his grandparents Akouassi Tossah and Linda Anderson, his loving aunts, uncles, cousins and many, many great friends.
We know Dexter is now with his grandfather’s Koffi Tossah and Larry Williams and his uncle Kevin Williams and that he is loved here on earth as well as in heaven.
We LOVE and MISS you so much!
Build Me a Son, O Lord
Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid; one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.
Build me a son whose wishbone will not be where his backbone should be; a son who will know Thee and that to know himself is the foundation stone of knowledge. Lead him, I pray, not in the path of ease and comfort, but under the stress and spur of difficulties and challenge. Here let him learn to stand up in the storm; here let him learn compassion for those who fail.
Build me a son whose heart will be clean, whose goal will be high; a son who will master himself before he seeks to master other men; one who will learn to laugh, yet never forget how to weep; one who will reach into the future, yet never forget the past.
And after all these things are his, add, I pray, enough of a sense of humor, so that he may always be serious, yet never take himself too seriously. Give him humility, so that he may always remember the simplicity of greatness, the open mind of true wisdom, the meekness of true strength.
Then I, his father, will dare to whisper, “I have not lived in vain.” (General Douglas MacArthur)
