Isaiah “Ike” Williams, son of Willie and Christine Williams, was born January 24, 1934 in Tampa, Florida. He departed this life January 16, 2021 at Capital Health-Fuld Campus.
Isaiah was educated in the Tampa school district. After graduation, he relocated to Trenton, New Jersey where he was a resident for sixty years.
In 1962, he met the love of his life Carol Brown, and in 1965 the two were joined in holy matrimony. This blessed union of 55 years gave birth to one son, Craig. Isaiah “Ike” Williams began his employment journey initially with Starr Transit. Several years later Mercer Metro became his bountiful road to endless friendships while encountering multiple Trentonians all over the city. Mercer Metro ultimately transitioned to New Jersey Transit, and after 35 years of dedicated service, he retired.
So after 35 years of early rising, and an exhaustive day of psychological counseling while completing his route ~ Ike needed an out! As the official “Mayor” of Hermitage Ave., you could usually find him in his office on the porch yelling out of the window at his constituents. If the shades were raised ~ the Mayor was in! When the political atmosphere became entirely too stressful, cruising the Seven Seas with his first mate Carol, was his favorite pastime. Once safely ashore, breakfast at McDonald’s with the crew would be his final destination.
Ike was preceded in death by his parents Willie and Christine Williams; his brother Joe Williams; sister Lizzie Bowden; nephew Timothy Bowden.
Ike’s memory will be forever remembered and cherished by his wife Carol; his son Craig. In addition, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends who will embrace his legacy; a special mention to his favorite niece, Keyonna.
Services will be 10am Tuesday, January 26, 2021 at Hughes Funeral Home, 324 Bellevue Ave., Trenton, NJ 08618. Calling hours will be 9am until the of services. Interment will be private.
