Shawn D. Williams

On October 3rd, 2019, the Lord welcomed a new Angel. Shawn D. Williams lost his long battle with cancer on that day. Shawn is survived by his wife Lori, mother Sandy Hunt Satterfield (Jack), sons Timothy Williams and David Ames (Ferran), daughters Hannah and Stephanie (Christopher), grandchildren Bianca, Isabella and Rebekah as well as numerous other blended/extended family members.

Shawn was born on August 3, 1969 and grew up in San Antonio, After graduating from Roosevelt High School he attended both San Antonio College and the Univ of Texas @ San Antonio. When in his early twenties, he moved to the family farm in Choate, TX and pursued his life-lomg career in the construction business. He loved raising his cattle, hunting and fishing or bar-b-que-ing for family and friends.

Following in footsepts of his great-grandfather (C.B.Hunt) and grandfather (Wm. Cledy Hunt), Shawn became a Master Mason as a very young man. Through the years he served as the Master of his lodge several times and eventually pursued higher degrees in the Scottish Rite, Shrine and others. Masonry made a good man better–a better husband, better father, better son and better friend. He believed in and tried to live his life according to those principles.

Although not overly demonstrative, he had a deep and abiding faith in his Father in Heaven and in his Savior, Jesus Christ.

Shawn leaves behind a host of family and friends who will miss his kindness, silly antic and jokes, talents, friendship and fellowship. A quote from Jamie Anderson–“Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give but cannot. All of that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in our throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.”

Visitation will be held Monday, October  7, 2019 from 3:00p.m. to 7:00p.m. at Eckols Chapel. Graveside services to be held Tuesday, October 8, 2019 at 10:00a.m. at Choate Cemetery, Choate, TX.

One Memory Tribute for “Shawn D. Williams”

    My fondest memories with Shawn go way back to elementary school and middle school years when we used to ride the school bus together. Shawn was pretty shy back then but oh so funny. I never heard a mean word about anyone come out of his mouth, and he was definitely one of the nicest guys I would ever know. We remained friends through high school but then lost touch. I was thrilled to have tracked Shawn down when planning our 30 yr high school reunion and even happier when he decided to attend. It was wonderful reconnecting with my old friend and getting to know his beautiful wife Lori. Such a wonderful couple to serve as an example to the rest of us of what true love and devotion are all about. I will miss you Shawn <3
