Lindon, Utah — Jon Wayne Williams, beloved son, husband, brother, father, and friend to all, passed away unexpectedly, but peacefully, on August 22, 2022. Born December 9, 1957, in San Diego, California, to Wayne and Sylvia Williams, Jon grew up in Wheaton, Illinois, where he excelled in art and sports, and developed an insatiable curiosity, a great love for the outdoors, and a deep faith in the Lord. A kind and gentle man, Jon led an exemplary life of service, extending friendship and compassion to all who crossed his path.
Jon loved an adventure whether sky diving, flying small aircraft, scuba diving, sailing, skiing, camping, fishing, or traveling. Over the years, he became an accomplished gardener, cook, and animator, winning a local Emmy Award for his special effects during the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympics. Jon had an incredible work ethic. He was an entrepreneur and loved being his own boss in both the computer graphics and senior care industries. He volunteered with youth in the church, taught Sunday School, was a leader in his congregation, and never hesitated to raise his hand to offer help and support for others in need.
He loved to read, he enjoyed music and movies, was fascinated by space, and occasionally tinkered with cars. But of all his loves, none meant more to him than his wife, his children, and the Lord. He served in the Washington Seattle Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was sealed in the Los Angeles Temple to his sweetheart, Rochelle, raised his five children in the church, and remained faithful until he finished his work on the earth.
Preceded in death by his wife, Rochelle, and granddaughter, Lila, Jon is survived by his parents, Wayne and Sylvia Williams; four siblings, Diana (Garry) Pace, Brent (Debra) Williams, Christopher (Teresa) Williams, and Karen (David) Edwards; his five children, Benjamin Williams, Daniel (Elizabeth) Williams, Garret Williams, Samantha (Conner) Monks, and Kimberly (Ely) Hansgen; and six grandchildren, Maddox, Weston, Gracie, Roczen, Romee, and Ancil.
