Denny was born September 15th, 1948 to Ray and Ernestine Williams in Butler,

Missouri and lived his whole life happily in Rich Hill, Missouri.


After finishing school, Denny served in the US Army during the Vietnam War in

1968-1969 in the 509th Engineering Corps. After completing his tour in the armed

forces, Denny returned to Rich Hill, where he met Margaret Woodall. They fell in love

and in 1972 were married, and they remained so for 50 years.


Denny is a beloved father, grandfather, and husband; as well as a renown fisherman,

outdoorsman, and friend to many people in the community. He enjoyed spending his

time on the river, fishing with his friends, or in the restaurant telling stories, laughing,

and having a good time.

Brandi, Denny’s brother Jerry and his wife Tammy and their two children, Jacob and

Lisa, and their grandchildren. Denny is survived by his loving grandchildren, Darren and
