I cannot express the loss that I feel seeing coach Williams' passing. He was one of the greatest coaches and human beings I've ever been privileged to know. He didn't allow me to hide behind excuses and made me become a better man. He led by example that it was ok to laugh at myself. He showed me that humor is more valuable than any trait in life. While I am so much better of a man becuause of him, I am so much less of one because of his passing. I will see you again with your charasmatic laugh. We will joke about how I can do more to make me better. But most of all...we will talk about how you made such a difference in so many people's lives. While we are all destined to have our judgement, I am looking forward to your smile, laughter, and challenge to me to be more than I can be on my own. I'm ashamed that I could not fully voice my admiration and appreciation of you in life...but hope that amongst those in Heaven that our paths my yet cross again. To a wonderful man, great mentor, and a silent loss to so many that you have're passing is a blessing but an overwhelming loss. I'm heartbroken...untill you make me laugh again.

Coach was a wonderful coach and man. Always on the right side of things. Made a difference in many lives. We appreciated him and the guidance he quietly provided. Love and prayers to his family. Rest In Peace Coach Williams.

I am so sad. Jim lived with my parents when I was a toddler. I remember my parents bundling me up and going to his football and basketball games. While coaching basketball in Dallas, I was asked if I knew “Cowboy Williams” from Plains. Jim told me that he would always be my step-brother. That is what I always tell people. Jim was loved by my family very much. So long and RIP Cowboy Williams. Live always, Pamela
