Harvey Mack Williams

May 26, 1952 — April 13, 2023

 

Harvey Mack Williams, age 70, of Jasper, Alabama went to be with the Lord Thursday morning, April 13, 2023. 

 

Mack was born May 26, 1952 in Birmingham, Alabama.  As a child of a Methodist minister, Mack and his family moved frequently, but Tarrant, Alabama was always considered his home.  Mack was a graduate of Tarrant High School in 1970 and married Lee Ann in 1975. They shared two children, Jonathan and Joy.  His interests included gardening, woodworking, and tinkering with his tools in various projects around the house.  He loved being involved in his children’s lives. “Coach Mack” could be found at the ball park or cooking “Mack” burgers in the concession stand during those early years.  He was also known as the family videographer, capturing moments at family holidays, vacations, sporting events, and half-time shows.

 

Mack was as an infantryman in the 167th Infantry Unit with the Army National Guard in Bessemer.  He was honorably discharged in 1977 after completing 6 years of service. 

 

For 30 years, Mack worked at South Central Bell / AT&T.  His work duties ranged from a lineman in the field to private & commercial installation of telecommunication equipment, digital lines, and fiberoptics.  He then worked in general tech support at AmSouth / Regions Bank until his retirement in 2019. 

 

Mack was a devout Christian and loved the Lord.  He was an active member of Rock United Methodist Church and served in a host of leadership capacities.  One of his favorite roles was co-teaching the children’s Sunday School class with his wife for over 20 years.  They transferred to Hope Community Church, formerly Gardendale Mt Vernon UMC, in 2000.  Mack enjoyed his Sunday School class and singing with the Men’s Ensemble & church choir.  Mack and Lee Ann moved to Jasper in 2022, where he was a member of First Methodist Church of Jasper at the time of his death.

 

Diagnosed in 2011 with Multifocal Motor Neuropathy, a rare neuromuscular disorder, Mack underwent years of treatment and regular weekly therapy sessions. The family would like to give special thanks to his neurologist, Dr. John Riser, his therapy team at Alabama Neurology Associates, and his home infusion nurse, Penny Shadinger.   Their kindness, compassion, and attention to Mack during this journey will never be forgotten. 

 

Mack is survived by his wife, Lee Ann Williams; children, Jonathan (Emily) Williams, and Joy Williams; granddaughter, Claire (11) Williams; sister, Nancy (Kelly) Hill; nephew, Wesley Sloman; niece, Whitney Williams.

 

He is preceded in death by his parents, Frank Williams and Earline Williams, and his brother, DeVan Williams.

 

The family will receive visitors on Tuesday, April 18, 2023 at Hope Community Church, formerly Gardendale Mt Vernon UMC, in Gardendale, Alabama from 12:30pm – 2:00pm with the funeral immediately following.   Reverend Alan Beasley and Reverend Steve Baccus will officiate.  He will be buried at Jefferson Memorial Gardens in Trussville.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks donations be made in Mack’s honor to the mission team at Hope Community Church or a charity of your choice.
