Errol Williams (Oct.30, 1951-Jul.14,2007)
This man Errol Lucian Williams was a film director, a student and a teacher, a father, a horrible stand-up comedian…But most importantly, he was my uncle.
He passed away three years ago today, from post-operative complications due to Leukemia. He was an exceptional man. He took care of my younger brother and I when we were very little, spending time growing up in New Brunswick . He made us go to the library and join the reading club. He took us to plays in the park and history museums and farmer’s markets. He blared music from the speakers in his tiny, red Hyundai Scoupe. We would sing along to songs by Bob Marley and Gregory Isaacs. He had a distinctly, deep and raspy voice and you could always hear his laugh from around the corner and know it was him. We all miss him very much.
R.I.P Uncle Errol…
