Brian Hursh Williams

Brian Hursh Williams transitioned from this life Dec.31, 2013. Brian was born Dec. 7, 1984 and lived in Lee’s Summit throughout his life. He graduated from Lee’s Summit High School in 2001.

As a young boy Brian enjoyed participating in gymnastics, baseball, football and skate boarding, excelling in each. As a teen he learned to box, taking a shot in a Golden Gloves event and getting a lesson in humility. He also played football in high school. He briefly attended MU in Columbia, Mo. After leaving college Brian tried his hand in several vocations from mechanics to construction.

Brian was never known as a “talker” but rather a deep thinker who seldom shared his thoughts. It was not uncommon to see him quietly sitting, with a slight smile on his face, knowing he had either seen or had done some mischief. When faced with risk and danger, he always resorted to his personal motto “it’ll be all right.” He had many friends and lost many early in life. He wasn’t much to judge another person, preferring to accept people as they were. He liked animals and adopted two stray cats “Stinkus” & “Exxon” they meant everything to him.

Brian was preceded in life by his two grandfathers Chuck Williams and Marion Hursh. He is survived by his parents Ron & Cindy Williams and a sister Sarah of Lee’s Summit. He is also survived by his two grandmothers Mary Elizabethe Ahlbrandt and Shirley Anne Hursh of Lee’s Summit, an aunt, three uncles and many cousins in the area. He is missed.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to either Kansas City Siamese Rescue or City Union Mission-Kansas City or a charity of choice. Visitation was held at Langsford Funeral Home Jan. 5 followed by a private service on Jan. 6.
