Irv was born August 12, 1934 in Arnold, NE, son of Earl and Helen (Simms)Williams.  He grew up in Arnold and attended school in Arnold until the 11th grade.  Before his senior year Irv moved to Tulsa, OK to live with his brother Fred and graduate high school.  He served his country in the US Army from 1955 to 1957.  Irv married Janet Kay Dillmon in Gothenburg on November 18, 1960 to which two children were born, Troy and Amy. In 1972 the family  moved to Gothenburg where Irv started work for Farmland Service Coop, which he did for over 30 years.

In loving memory of Uncle Irv. Though I only met him a few times and knew him mostly through fond memories of my Dad’s, I knew him as a kind man full of laughter who possessed true joy in his heart.

I met my husband's (Steven Nelson) Uncle Irv way back in 1977 on a trip to Nebraska to meet "the family".  I remember Irv as being hysterically funny and warm with a precious lighthearted spirit.  He was so kind to this "Cali-native" and even though I was a city girl he helped me feel like I belonged from the beginning.  Steve has such fond memories of his childhood because of his Uncle Irv and I am so grateful for those moments he still carries inside his heart..  Our two children only saw him a few times, but they recall laughter, laughter and more laughter...  

Thank you, Irv, for being the beacon of light for the Lord you loved so much.  Your faith carried you through to the end and now you are with your Savior.  

To Jan, Troy and Amy and family...  You are in our thoughts and prayers.  I pray the memories of your hubby, dad and grandpa will comfort you in the days and years ahead.  I know you will see him again... Love to you all...Becky
