Milton Leon Williams Obituary

Oakland, CA native Milton Leon Williams was the only son and youngest of four children born to the late Milton Eugene Williams and Leona Edna Mae (Whitley) Williams on September 4, 1954.  He was Christen at McGee Avenue Baptist Church, Berkeley, CA under the leadership of Reverend Syphers.

Milton, affectionately known as “Brother” lived his life exactly the way he wanted to, and with his mother’s blessing. To his parents and grandparents, the late William Leon and Nanearl Eleanor (Fleming) Whitley, Jr. Brother was the KING!

Brother was an avid reader, enjoyed watching movies, and listening to music.  He especially loved listening to Bootsy Collins, George Clinton, and the Parliament-Funkadelics. 

Brother was his own man. A man to himself. Yet, he was very kind and welcoming to those who came to the family home. His nieces would say that they could always count on Brother greeting them with a big smile on his face. He was a fearless guardian of his nieces, nephews, and the kids in the neighborhood.

Brother was preceded in death by his parents, sister Coralee Williams Willis-Malone, and precious other relatives. He is survived in loving memory by his sisters: Nanearl F. Williams Toussaint-Touson (Jessea) and Melvia N. Williams Gray-Smith; brother-in-law: Sanders E. Willis, Jr.; nephews: Jeffrey A. Gray (Patricia), Michael A. Willis (Nakisha), and Philip W. Toussaint-Touson (Kristima); nieces: Michele C. Gray-Samuel and Stacey E. Toussaint-Touson; great-nieces and nephews: Robert Boyd, William and Jonathan Gray, Alexander and Brianna Samuel, Xavier and Aliyah Willis, Cynthia and Cecilei Kelley, Ayinda Evans, Leon Cob, Nanearl, Jessea, and Mario Toussaint-Touson, and a host of other loving relatives and friends. He will be missed by those who loved him.
