Mr. Harvey S. “Pops” Williams, Jr. of Leander, TX, formerly of Harrisburg, AR, departed this life Tuesday evening, May 21, 2019, at his home, at the age of 80.
He was born October 5, 1938 in Germantown, TN, the son of the late Harvey Street Williams, Sr. and Bernice Irene Walker Williams.
Harvey was a U. S. Navy veteran having served from 1956-1960. He was the former owner and operator of H & L Trucking for 18 years.
