Born March 9, 1948, Cincinnati, died February 1, 2012, Seattle.
Preceded in death by his father, Nathaniel Williams, Sr., and older brother, Freddy.
Survivors are his companion for life Bill Mallow, his son Nathaniel Mcilvane Williams III, and wife Fiona, his mother Wilhelmina Bowman Williams, and siblings Phillip, Robert, Mia, and T.J., all of San Francisco, and siblings Patricia of Eufaula, AL, and Michelle of Las Vegas, NE. Also numerous aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews beyond number.
He loved to cook. Or more to the point, he loved to cook for people.
He loved to sing, anything, anytime, anywhere.
He was a member of the Seattle Opera Chorus Auxiliary and sang in La Forza del Destino, Aida, Othello, Billy Budd, and others I forget (but he would not have forgotten, not a note).
He was a member of the Seattle Symphony Chorale, and sang Beethoven's Ninth as well as Handel's Messiah, Mozart's Requiem, and Verdi's Requiem.
Before his death, we were able to go to New York to attend a reunion of the Light Opera of Manhattan.
He had a wonderful time talking, singing, and joking with people who obviously admired his voice, his stage sense, and his timing. He was really and truly loved.
His life was full of music.
