David was one of three sons born in Hartsville, SC to the late Leslie and Lydia Warr Williams.

He proudly served in the Marine Reserves. As a faithful member of First Baptist Church, he taught Sunday School, served as a deacon, and worked tirelessly with Boy Scouts of America. After retirement, David enjoyed working with Belk Department Stores in their Sales Division, was an avid golfer, loved to work in his yard and garden - and remained a true blue USC Gamecock fan!
