ATTLEBORO – Lawrence E. “Larry” Williams, 82
An amazing man went back home to his Maker peacefully at home on Friday May 5, 2017. Lawrence was the beloved husband of Constance Corkum-Williams and the former husband of the late Roberta (Logan) Williams and the late Carol (Street Williams) Pissinis.
Born on April 14, 1935 in Attleboro, he was the son of the late Lawrence D. and Nellie (Schupbach) Williams. Lawrence was a lifelong resident of Attleboro and a 1953 graduate of Attleboro High School. He later attended the University of Rhode Island and Stonehill College. He worked as a product sales manager for St. Regis/Fortifiber in Attleboro and Ivex Corporation in Newton for 36 years before retiring in 1997.
Lawrence was very proud that he was a 32nd degree Mason and Past Master of Bristol Lodge AF & AM and was Past District Deputy Grand Master of the 28th Masonic District. He was a member of the Royal Arch Chapter (York Rite) where he served as Council and Commandery. He was also a member of the Valley of Boston, Scottish Rite. He was a Past District Deputy Grand Master’s Association of Massachusetts and was a member of the O.E.S. #118 Anglestone Chapter.
In addition to his loving wife Connie, he is survived by his three children Mark Williams, Susan Bottan and David Williams, his step children Debra Guy, Kristi Patel, Jodi Meyer, Clark Grant, Kathi Meyer Sullivan, Kyle Corkum, Matthew Corkum, Cynthia Lancaster, David Corkum and all of their spouses and a brother, Warner Williams. He was a wonderful Grampa to his 28 grandchildren and his 14 great grandchildren. He was also the grandfather of late Taylor Meyer and April Williams. A legacy of love is left behind in everyone that he touched. Everyone who met Larry said he was always the gentleman. A kinder, more loving man is hard to find. He will be missed by all that loved him.
