SEAGRAVES -- Joe Edd Williams, 78 of Seagraves, crossed the bridge into heaven on November 3, 2020. Joe Edd was born to Joe and Dora Rogers Williams on January 11, 1942 in Gaines County. He married the love of his life Mary Roberson on January 15, 1960 in Lovington, New Mexico. He owned and operated Williams Dirt Work from 1960 to 1988 working alongside his father, wife and all their children. In 2000 he and his sons purchased a ranch in Crossroads, New Mexico and he loved going to help them with the cattle as well as farming and raising hay for the ranch. He was a member of Seagraves Masonic Lodge and the First Baptist Church of Seagraves. His hard work and dedication to doing things right he passed to his children and grandchildren and it is what he was the proudest of. He would never ask anyone to do anything he wouldn’t do himself. He had a big heart and his family was everything to him. He never met a stranger and had many friends he loved to visit with. He loved playing hully gull at coffee with many of those friends. You could always see him at events his children and grandchildren we’re participating in, he was their biggest supporter and was so proud of his grandchildren and how their lives were developing.
