The Honorable Archie Daniel Williams, passed away tranquilly on December 11, 2014, in Montgomery Village, Maryland, with his family by his bedside. Judge Williams was born to the late William Williams and Magnolia Williams Williams on November 11, 1917, in Warren County, North Carolina, and was the fourth of their eight children.
He served his country in the United States Army during World War II, where he met and married Anna Matile King. Their loving union lasted for sixty-seven years, and God blessed them with two children, Carole P. Carter and Archie D. Williams, Jr.
After his departure from the Army, Judge Williams received his law degree and became a practicing attorney for numerous years in Baltimore, Maryland, before becoming a judge of the Orphans Court in Baltimore City. Judge Williams and Anna retired to his family home in North Carolina, for many years before his recent return to Maryland.
