Tyson W. Williams, fondly called T-Bone by his close friends and family, unexpectedly passed away on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, at his home at the age of 49.
He was born June 18, 1973, in Fort Wayne, to Donald and Shirley (Rhoades) Williams. On July 1, 2000, he married the love of his life, Lisa Long, in Columbia City.
Tyson graduated high school before going on to earn certifications in marine mechanics. He spent the majority of his career working at Splendor Boats in Warsaw as a marine mechanic, a job that he was greatly passionate about.
Outside work, Tyson was an avid deer hunter and fisherman who cherished being in nature’s company. He found solace in these activities and was often seen riding his motorcycle out on open country roads. Tyson’s family meant everything to him, and he loved spending time with them above all else, especially with his children, who gave him endless joy. His giving nature extended beyond his kin as he would often offer help to anyone who needed it. Tyson was a hardworking and devoted family man who will be remembered for his kindness, unique personality and the love he had for his family.
Tyson is survived by his loving wife, Lisa; children, Kyle and Kendra Williams; brother, Donald “Gabby” (Pati) Williams; sister, Kathy Kincaid; mother, Shirley Williams; two nieces and one nephew. While he will be sorely missed by all of those who loved him, Tyson is now reunited with his daughter, Brianne Williams, and his father, Donald Williams Sr. For Lisa, she has indeed lost her rock upon whom she could always depend.
