He came home to a career as a barber in Cardington, then serving as a guard at Marion Correctional before his retirement. Fred served as a Lincoln Township Trustee, a member of the V.F.W., and member of the Mount Gilead Church of Christ.

This obituary does not scratch the surface of one man's ordinary and extraordinary impact on his community. Fred Williamson was a larger-than-life personality who laughed often and loud. Someone who made sure all around him also got to laugh often and loud. If you were his friend, you were his family.

He is greatly missed.
