Harold Williams

March 18, 1965 ~ March 23, 2018 (age 53)

Harold Williams Jr. was born on March 18, 1965 in Brooklyn, New York to Edna Lloyd Green and Harold Williams but he would be raised by his mother Chrysanthius Spann Williams. His grandmother, Reverend Mary Spann named him “Lucky” but it was easy to see that we were the lucky ones. Even as a baby, he always wore a beautiful smile and laughed so easily at everything happening around him.

 

Lucky attended the NYC Public School System and he was in the College Bound program @ Franklin K. Lane High School. He later went into the NYC Job Corp program where he learned the skill of plaster and painting. After securing a job with a private Sanitation Company, Lucky went right to work & helped his family and friends get jobs there too. He loved looking out for everyone. Although he was raised in St. Timothy, he made his own choice to join the church in his early teens. He loved watching his Uncle Larry play the drums and before he was even old enough to sit on the Drum stool himself, Larry would hold him on his lap as he taught him how to play the drums. Lucky's face would light up every time he saw those drums and he would turn every pot and pan in the house into drums where he’d sit for hours on end playing, using wooden spoons for drumsticks. Sometimes, his Uncle Larry would get to the church only to find that Lucky was trying to steal his job. He really loved playing for church services and especially for the Children's Choir and he also played for various groups and churches.

 

Lucky also had the gift of creation… he loved designing custom drum kits and he saw to it that all of his cousins that played, had beautiful drum sets of their own. He has an astonishing collection of Custom Drums that he designed. Lucky said that one of his greatest accomplishments was joining the Musicians Union because it was then that he attained his musical accolades.

 

He would often call his Mom “Sissy” to tell her that he was sending her pictures of his latest drum creations to put on her Facebook page. He told her that they had to be on her page!

 

In everything he did, Lucky was always looking out for his family and he loved being around them to share his knowledge about life. He also loved seniors and taking care of them. For a long time, Lucky live with his grandmother and found great peace caring for her. They would spend hours on end talking… her sharing wisdom and him accepting those life lessons. He was very dependable and true to his word when he gave it.

 

Lucky was the oldest of 9 siblings. His younger brother Troy preceded him in death. He was a great father to his only son Da’Sean and his sister Dashana Wilkinson whom he helped raise. He had so much love for his granddaughters Imani and Imayah and he loved spending time with them.

 

Lucky was truly devoted to his partner, Esther Bartling as well as helping Esther care for her disabled mother for the past 20 years. He couldn't get enough words into the air about Esther. His love for her always put a light in his eyes, a smile on his face and the flame in his heart.
