David was a successful businessman and owned and operated David Williams Paint and Body Shop for over 25 years.  David was inducted into the Shuffleboard Hall of Fame in December 2002 as a professional shuffleboard player and was well known throughout the U.S. as one of the most honored and respected players ever to compete.  He was passionate about sports and enjoyed coaching his children and later attending all of his grandchildren’s games and events.

David had a huge impact on my life. I met him through my recently deceased mother, Linda Earl Miles (4/26/19) who was a faithful customer of his. David supported me and my mom while I played AAU basketball in the early 90s. Because of his generosity, I committed to always making sure he was on speed dial whenever I or any of my friends and family needed body work. Dave was there to save the day! I'm sure you the William's family is proud! What a pleasure knowing a man like him. Thanks to the Williams family for sharing such a wonderful man.
