Born in Barnwell County, SC, he was a son of the late Velton Williams and Aline Williamson Williams Mitchell and his adopted parents J. L. and Deloris Gleaton.

Jaybird was the coolest “Papa” that his grandchildren could have ever asked for; he loved his flowers, football, gardening and being outside enjoying God’s creation. He was a wonderful husband to Roberta, was a great provider for his family and was the strongest man his family ever knew.

He was preceded in death by his sisters Vonette “Dolly” Williams, Mary Williams and his brothers Wilton, Benny, Buster Gene, Willie, Cecil and Joseph Williams.
