Dec. 13, 1930 – Dec. 22, 2019
The world lost an old school gentleman, and goodness personified with the passing of Elwood Henry Williams, 89. Elwood was the eldest son of Freda (Foss) and Joseph Williams, both of Pasadena, and co-owned the popular Caldwell Tire shop on Colorado Boulevard in Pasadena. He and his wife Pat (Patricia Burke), who pre-deceased him in 1998, made their home in Altadena and Sierra Madre, Calif., raising four children (Kerry, Kathleen, Colleen and Matt) and attending First Baptist Church of Pasadena. In 2007, Elwood married Joyce Downey of Illinois, for the past five years they lived in Monrovia, Calif. In addition to Joyce and his children, Elwood is survived by his siblings — Freda, George, Bill and Kathe — and by his grandchildren: Lauren, Shannon and Bryan. A Memorial Service will be held at noon on Sat., Jan. 25 at Douglass and Zook Mortuary in Monrovia. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to your charity of choice.
