Paul L. Williams

Paul L. Williams, 67, of Edgerton, Wis., died Sunday, July 10, 2022, at his home following a courageous battle with Huntington’s Disease.

He was born in Hillsboro, Wis., on June 2, 1955, the son of the late Robert and Emily (Bloor) Williams. He attended Brookwood High School in Ontario/ Norwalk and later graduated from Milton High School in 1973. Paul married his high school sweetheart, Roxie J. Braden, on Nov. 8, 1974, in Janesville. He worked for Oak Village Landscaping for many years. Paul loved doing his landscaping, having campfires and the serenity they offered, trout fishing and deer hunting. He would also do anything for anyone and had such great knowledge!
