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.
