A beautiful bond in the Williams family was broken when an angel of the Lord called his beloved child, Gerald Jerome Williams home to rest on May 26, 2020 at Ochsner Medical Center in Metairie, LA. Gerald was born on June 13, 1967, the youngest child of the late Rev. Medrick Williams, Sr. and Rosalie Banks Williams of Laplace, LA.

He was reared in a Christian home, and was baptized at a very early age, by the late Bishop Joseph Warren Sr., of the Greater Morning Star Baptist Church of Laplace, LA. He was educated in the St. John the Baptist Parish School System and was a graduate of East St. John High School, Class of 1986. He also attended the River Parish Technical School in Reserve, LA., and was employed by K&S Industrial Services.

Gerald was a friendly, caring, and most of all, a giving person. He had an infectious smile and loved joking around with family and friends. His favorite hobbies were fishing, playing horseshoes, watching football (Dallas Cowboys), listening to gospel music, and most of all playing his bass.

Aside from his bass guitar, Gerald's children were his greatest joy. Gerald and the late Alana Stirgus became the proud parents of his oldest child, Armaud Stirgus. From his former marriage to Shalonda Ingram in February of 1994, Gerald was blessed with 3 children, Saisha, Jarron, and Jared. His life revolved around his children. He was a devoted father and took on many jobs and responsibilities to provide for his family.

Gerald learned music at an early age and was a member of The Gospel Hymns of Joy quartet group for many years. He played his bass for various churches and groups, whenever he was called or needed. He became a devoted member of the Rising Star Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Donald August, Sr. He served as the bass player for the music ministry. He loved his church and his tireless services of the music ministry was reflected in everything he did. His favorite song was “If I can help somebody as I travel along, if I can cheer somebody with a word or song, then my living will not be in vain.”

Gerald leaves behind a large and loving family, and many beautiful memories. Deloyd and Verna, his oldest siblings, were his second parents. They spoiled him unselfishly. To cherish these memories are his children Armaud Stirgus, Saisha, Jarron, and Jared Williams; a precious grandson, Jaxon Stirgus; brothers, Deloyd Williams, Sr. (Sharon), Lionel Williams (Cheryl), Medrick Williams, Jr. (Gwen); Sisters, Verna Warren (Benjamin), Marva Joseph (Melvin Jr.), Yvonne Smith (Juansley), Norma Dorris, Marilyn Warren (Samuel Jr.), Joyce Bush (Mike), Marlese Watkins (Rev. Irvin), Sheryl Pierre (Alexis), Brother-in-law, Rev. Edgar Zeno, Sr.; godchildren, Jaden Coleman, Bianca Warren, and Quinten Edwards, and a devoted friend, Kenya Green-Williams. His memories will live on in the heart of his many nieces and nephews, who he treasured for each of their unique personalities, so much so that he had a nickname for every one of them.

Gerald now joins his parents, Rev. Medrick Williams Sr. and Rosalie Banks Williams; sisters, Aline Zeno, Bernadine Batiste, and Rose Francois; brother-in-law, Bruce Batiste, Sr.; and nephews, Brandon Williams, and Jayson Warren.

A public viewing will be held on Saturday, June 6, 2020 from 9:00am-11:00am, at Treasures of Life Funeral Services 315 E. Airline Hwy, Gramercy, LA 70052. Entombment to follow at St.John Memorial Gardens
