Nathan “Rick” Williamson

Nathan Richard “Rick” Williamson, age 58 of Roanoke, VA passed away on Sunday, July 18, 2021. Rick was so full of life and humor. If you were fortunate to be around Rick, you couldn’t help but laugh at most things he said. Rick loved NASCAR and UNC Basketball and enjoyed watching them as often as he could. For anyone who knew Rick, they would say he was a walking encyclopedia because he knew something about everything. He remained close with his neighborhood best friends, Jimmy and Barry Henderson, through all these years. They had countless times laughing and reliving the past. Rick was a quiet and thankful man. Rick was a praying man and prayed often. Once you were on his prayer list you never left. He would just add a new prayer request to the list. Once, he said his prayer list was so long that he had to break them down into sessions to get them completed. Over the past ten years, his relationship with his sister, Angie became stronger than ever. He would have done anything for Angie. She will always treasure their time together.
