Jarom Williams

May 6, 1977 — February 7, 2021

On Sunday, February 7th, 2021 the world lost a beautiful soul and a bright light. Jarom Allen Williams

was born on May 6th, 1977 in Logan, Utah. He was a miracle baby. Despite an emergency C-section and

an umbilical cord wrapped around his neck, he took his first breath--against all odds. From the very

beginning Jarom was a fighter.

Jarom has a generous heart, and a genuine love for the overlooked and marginalized in society. It's no

surprise, therefore, that later in life he found great joy and purpose in working alongside social workers

providing for the homeless in Provo, Utah. He was constantly giving his time and financial resources to

help others. This last Christmas he asked for no gifts--insisting the money be used to help others in need.

Jarom has a divine gift that allowed him to look past the outward appearances, and to see the hearts of

others. He was a warrior for unity and goodness, and the world is a less kind place without him.

Everyone's favorite uncle is Uncle Jarom. He spent countless hours comforting, loving and playing with

his many nieces and nephews. Despite the challenges of life, he managed to never lose his childlikeness;

he found great joy in surprises, Christmas, gift giving, Halloween, games and the simple pleasure of play.

He is survived by nieces: Shaelyn and Cassidy Gates, Zelle Williams, Teegan O'Brien and Mary-Kathryn

Hervey; and nephews: Jace Gates, Luca and Jonah Hervey, Tristan O'Brien and Zeike and Zage Williams.

Jarom fought through many earthly challenges with incredible courage and perseverance. He managed

to find a path that led to recovery, redemption, forgiveness and love. His life was a miracle, from the

very beginning, to witness. We, who knew and loved him best, are so honored for our time together, for

the lessons he taught and for the man we love.

He is survived by his mother and father, Heber and Mona Williams. Siblings: Tera Williams Gates

(Gordon Gates), Trina Williams O'Brien (Tara O'Brien), Logan Williams (Samantha Williams) and Ashley

Williams Hervey (Derek Hervey).

Our family is strong because we are joined by links of love. We will be forever changed by Jarom's

legacy. He gently reminded us that we can be even stronger as we open our chain of love to freely

include our fellowmen. Thank you for your life, Jarom. We love you for eternity.
