Carroll Aubrey Williams, 93, civil engineer who enjoyed an exciting career

Carroll Aubrey Williams, 93, was born May 17, 1925, to the late Hersey and Helen Williams of Norfolk. He departed this world Friday, March 8, 2019, to join his heavenly Father.

Carroll attended Blair Junior High, Maury High School and joined the U.S. Army during the European Theater during World War II. Upon his return, he attended Virginia Tech graduating in 1950 with a B.S. Degree in Civil Engineering and started his civil service career at the Army Corps of Engineers, then the Norfolk Naval Base, next was Wallops Island NASA, and then retiring from NASA Langley.

He is survived by his loving bride of 64 years, Barbara Echols Williams; daughter, Kathleen Wyatt (Charles); son, Aubrey Williams (Tracy); grandchildren, Skylar Scott, Morgan Wyatt, Garrett Williams and Carly Williams; great-granddaughter, Audrey Scott; nephew, Robert Williams (Theresa); grand-niece, Madison; brother-in-law, Daniel Shriner (Darlene).

He was preceded in death by his brother, Richard Williams.

He enjoyed his profession of civil engineering and designed the two homes where his family resided. After retiring, he took up painting and participated in the ODU archaeological dig in Great Neck. He loved working in his yard among the azaleas, camellias and pines.

Carroll enjoyed traveling with Barbara, as well as reading about history. He took on the challenge of tracing his family roots back to Ireland. A strong family man, he was dedicated in keeping in touch with family members and friends. As a Christian, he lived his faith daily and enjoyed his church family at Virginia Beach Community Chapel.

The family would like to thank Dr. Radkar, Intrepid Hospice and Cozy Home Care for their support during these times.
