Obituary for Quinner Floyd Williams

March 6, 1958 - March 14, 2018
Austin, Texas | Age 60


On March 14, 2018, Quinner Floyd Williams, Jr., husband, father and brother-in-law, passed away peacefully surrounded by his wife and daughters. He had just celebrated his 60th birthday the week before. Quinner was born in Austin, Texas on March 6, 1958 to Quinner F. Williams and Margaret Merle (Henderson) Williams, both deceased. He grew up in Austin attending Lucy Read and Gullett Elementary, Burnet Junior High, Anderson High School and Austin Community College. He followed in his dad's footsteps and was a lifelong State employee.

Quinner had many interests including history and genealogy. While at Burnet Junior High, he met Janet (Hejl) Williams, the love of his life. What started out as friendship became love and so much more. They were married on December 2, 1994 and were blessed with two beautiful daughters who Quinner adored with all his heart and soul. He always made sure his wife and daughters knew how much they meant to him and they did the same for him. Quinner faced many health issues, cancer and kidney failure, but always fought them so he could be with his family. Many have their own definition of courage, but Quinner was our idea of what courage really is. In the end, those illnesses were what took him away far too soon from his family and friends.

Quinner is pre-deceased by his parents, his grandparents, Millie (Conn) Henderson and Quinner and Zula (Kelley) Williams, an infant brother and his father and mother-in-law, John Bryce and Laverne (Heine) Hejl. He will be forever lovingly remembered by his wife, Janet, daughters, Christina and Celeste Williams, sister-in-law, Diane Hejl, brothers-in-law, John Hejl, all of Austin and Bill Hejl of Apopka, Florida, aunts, Annette (Williams) Jones of Redlands , CA and Dorothy (Williams) Nolte of New Braunfels, TX, numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

We would like to thank the staff at Retirement Nursing Center, the entire staff at Waterloo Dialysis, all of his nurses at Seton IMC and ICU, especially Brian, who cared for Quinner in his last hours of life, Nurse Practitioner, Melanie Palmer for all of her care and help throughout Quinner 's stay at Seton, and Dr. Berg for his kindness and time talking and listening to Quinner. Also, Chaplains Tommy Williams and Ryan for their friendship, kindness and spiritual guidance for Quinner and Janet in this difficult time. None of you will ever be forgotten.
