Robert Preston (Bobby, Bobcat) Williams
June 13, 1949 - October 17, 2020

NEWTON, N.C. - Robert Preston (Bobby, Bobcat) Williams, 71, of Newton, passed away on October 17, 2020, after a long period of declining health, at Brian Center in Hickory.

He is survived by his mother, Florene Ikerd Williams; his brother, Larry Eugene Williams (Sabrina); his sister, Janet Williams Freeman (Doug); his nephew, nieces, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Bobby was predeceased by his father, Robert Cline Williams; paternal grandparents, Charles Brantley and Pearl WilliamsL and maternal grandparents, George and Lela Ikerd.

Born June 13, 1949 Bobby led a full and enriched life with a loving family and countless friends. He graduated from NCHS, served in the US Army, and was disabled. Without a doubt, Bobby lived his life on his own terms, at full speed. He drank deeply from life, never meeting a stranger, and was loved for his special character, humility, friendly demeanor, and devotion to his family. Bobby’s gifts were immeasurable and unique. The family will always carry Bobby’s memory and love of life in their hearts.

A private service of remembrance will be held at a later time.

Bennett Funeral Service of Newton, N.C. is serving the Williams family.
