Worthy "Sugar Tom" Williams, 89, of Robbins went to meet the Lord on Friday, December 14, 2018.  His wife of 63 years, Carol Lee preceded him in death in 2014, and his son Garry preceded him in death in 2016.

He is survived by six children: Edwin (Ruth), Linda Kearns (Charles), Lynn (Linda), Vicky Strider (Barney), Tommy (Lisa) of Robbins and Darlene Samples (Mark) of Carthage. He is also survived by his daughter-in-law, Pat of Inman, SC.  In addition, he is survived by 12 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, two brothers; Gurney and Elwood, two sisters; Arlene Brewer and Peggy Oakley and many nieces and nephews.

He had a great love for his tractor and requested to be buried with his Red Belly Ford because he joked that he had never been in a hole that the tractor had not gotten him out of.  His pleasure and livelihood for much of his life involved cars which included racing, repairing, towing and selling. He also enjoyed a good day of hunting or fishing.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Rock Hill Friends Church, 148 Rock Hill Friends Church Road, Eagle Springs, NC 27242 or your favorite charity.

A visitation time will be held at 2PM on Sunday, December 16 with the service beginning at 3PM at Rock Hill Friends Church with Rev. David Roudabush officiating. Burial will be at Pine Rest Cemetery in Robbins.

Kennedy Funeral Home is assisting the family.
