Andrew was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and was raised in the historic Smoketown Neighborhood. Andrew was a 1966 graduate of Louisville Male High School, and was a member of the "drumline that changed everything." He paid his way through college and a jazz drummer, graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 1970 with a Bachelors of Political. He was a proud charter member of EKU's Omega Phi Psi, Delta Sigma chapter.
Andrew's vast professional career spanned over 40 years, as an entrepreneur, consultant, and project manager on both sides of the River. He also played a vital and selfless role in minority business development.
Andrew was a humble and active community servant. He served on the Jeffersonville City Council for 12 years, volunteered for many organizations in Kentuckiana, including the Boy Scouts of America, Jeffersonville Housing Authority, and held past memberships in the NAACP and Jeffersonville Rotary. Andrew was also a devoted and active member of Wesley United Methodist Church in Jeffersonville, Indiana.
Andrew had a warm, and infectious smile. He loved his friends and family deeply and was intentional about spending time and creating memories with them; always sharing wisdom or just a laugh. Andrew was many things to many people: a neighbor, husband, grandfather, brother, father, role model, cousin, uncle, mentor, barber, drummer, and sometimes a personal banker. But above all he was a loyal and committed friend.
He was preceded in death by his birth parents, Andrew Williams II and Mary Helen Williams; his beloved mother, Ruthann Williams; and grandparents, Vernon and Willie Mae Jackson.
He is survived by his loving wife of 13 years, Rosetta "Rose" Williams; children, Kanneil Williams (Tiffany), Andrew Williams IV, Teah Mikole Williams-Hampton (Miguel), Dominique "Nikki" Williams, Carlos Butler, and D'Adren "DJ" Hervey; two siblings, James Snoddy and Rhonda Higgins; grandchildren Andre, Andrel, Anetra, Andrew V, Antonio, Xavier, Dominik, Mireya, Camryn, Jadynn, Mantrell, Chrissy, Trinity and one great-grandchild Annalise; his lifelong friends Phillip "Fletch" Fletcher (Georgette), Hugh Armstrong and a host of other close friends and family members.
