May 4, 1967 ~ July 31, 2023 (age 56) 56 Years Old


Brian Keith Williams beloved Husband, Father and Grandfather was called home to God while asleep on July 31, 2023.


Brian was born in Staten Island Hospital on May 4, 1967. He was the youngest son of Duane Williams and Yvonne Robinson, both of whom preceded him in death. As a boy he loved urban climbing, as a young man he discovered sky walking and soon joined Roofers Local Union 8.  At 31 years old he became a father through his long term union with Lisa Rios. Together they had three beautiful girls Briana, J-Lyn and Gabrielle. In 2013, he moved from New York to Virginia and reconnected with his childhood girlfriend Tonya Milliner. They married on December 16,2016 and he became a “bonus” father to Alexji Gaston. Soon after the marriage, he was injured while sky walking on the roof and had to change his career. He obtained his Commercial Driver License and drove concrete mixer trucks until his illness made this no longer possible.

Brian had the ability to make friends wherever he went. He was known for lending a helping hand, a ready smile and his banter. He loved to cook, bake, travel, fish and watch Tik Tok videos. With lasting memories , he leaves his loving and devoted wife Tonya Williams; four daughters, Briana, Alexji, J-Lyn and Gabrielle; one grandson Aiden Crawford; one granddaughter Leilani Small, three brothers, Ronvae, Curtis and Anthony (Tony); sisters-in-law, Carrie, Kimberly, Margaret, Abrielle, Tanya Dulea and Janelle; brother-in-law Jamel and many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
