Trummy Earl Williams, 63, of Battle Creek, Michigan, transitioned to his eternal home on Friday morning, September 7, 2018 at home after a long illness. He was born in Detroit, MI, on June 7, 1955, the son of Earnest and Elizabeth (Sharp) Williams.
He graduated from Battle Creek Central High School in 1974. In November of 1974 Trummy enlisted in the United States Army and was stationed in Fort Lee, Virginia.
