Robert Stanley Williamson was born on July 22, 1927 in Merrill, Iowa to Robert George and Margaret May (McCauley) Williamson. He passed on to the next life to be with his wife Virginia on March 12, 2020. In addition to his parents and his wife, he was preceded in death by his sister Blanche Helm and his grandson Landon Biggers.
Robert attended Central High School in Sioux City, Iowa. After graduation, he enlisted in the Navy in 1945 and served on the USS Wisconsin until 1946. He graduated from the University of Iowa and the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Phoenix, Arizona.
Following his marriage to Virginia in 1954, they moved to Mexico City with General Electric. They spent 15 years there where all three of their daughters were born. He is survived by those daughters, Martha Rugeley and husband Kent of Oklahoma City, Mollie Biggers and her husband Doug of La Quinta, California, and Sarah Williamson of Madrid Spain. He is also survived by seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Bob touched many lives during his forty-three years as a friend of Bill W. This was evident with the number of visitors that came to see him in recent days. He was a wonderful friend and support to many.
Although he faced many physical challenges following a stroke in 2008, he maintained a positive attitude and a smile on his face. He especially enjoyed visits from his grandchildren and great grandchildren.
