Anthony "Big Buck" Williams

August 6, 1975 — September 26, 2022

Anthony Brady Williams was born on August 6, 1975, in Arkadelphia, Arkansas to the union of CJ Williams-Pigg and Marion Marlow Arnold. “Big Buck” was known as a gentle giant. He was a loving, honest, kind, and caring young man who never met a stranger. He confessed his faith in Christ at a young age and was a member of Church of the Living God Pillar Ground of the Truth Temple #16 in Vaden, Arkansas.

As a young man full of life, he moved to San Marcos, Texas where he studied mechanics. He earned a Technical Diploma in Mechanics from Job Corps. While at Job Corps he met Susanna Muniz and they were married on June 19, 1999.  

Anthony was a dedicated employee of Georgia Pacific having worked there for over 25 years until his passing. He was laid back and kept to himself. He made many friends at Georgia Pacific and he was always a model employee.  

He was a hard worker and provider for his family. In his spare time, he enjoyed building and working on race cars. He spent a lot of time with friends at the Prescott Race Track. Anthony enjoyed listening to the blues and his favorite artist was Brian McKnight. Anthony was unique in his own way, never out-front and to be seen, but humble and gentle in every respect.  

Though he is no longer with us in body, his legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of those who were impacted by the wonderful life he lived. On Monday, September 26, 2022, Anthony passed peacefully into the Lord’s embrace. He was preceded in death by his father, CJ Williams Pigg; his bonus father, Enoch Arnold and an aunt Vera Marlow.  

Because love is far greater than death, his love will continue to live in the hearts of his family; the love of his life, Susanna Muniz Williams; his children, Jacinta J. Williams of Tulsa, OK, Anna M. Williams of Harlingen, TX,  Clinton J. Williams of Shaker Heights, OH and Kassandra G.
