It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Rowland Walter Williams of Riverview on Saturday, August 26, 2023 at The Moncton Hospital. Born in Cumberland Bay, NB, he was the son of the late John and Minnie (Studley) Williams.

Rollie was a legend in his own way, known by many for his smile (grin) and the stories that he not only told but made. He retired following many years in the trucking industry working for Brunswick Petroleum Transport, Gulf Oil, and Ultramar. His greatest joy was serving the hundreds of truckers at his Ultramar Cardlock on the former trans Canada outside of Moncton. He was respected by many for the impeccable service he provided to his fellow truck drivers. This was his passion.

He will be sadly missed by his children Kevin Williams (Kimberly), Sherry Peel (John), Brenda Williams (Andrew), and Brian Williams (Krista), grandchildren J.P, Dolly, Marty, Kelsey, William, Colin, Andrew, and Emma, 4 great-grandchildren, the mother of his children Joan Williams (Strayhorn), his sister Pat Blackier (Eric), stepbrother Johnny Williams, and several nieces, nephews, and extended family members. Also his many friends of all walks of life, who he’d the give the shirt off his back for and did.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his sister Ada Antworth (Stillman).

Rollie’s family extends an invitation to friends and relatives to join them at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Road, Riverview (869-2007) on Wednesday, September 6th from 6 – 8pm for a time to share and celebrate his life. Donations made to the IWK would be appreciated by his family.
