A proud graduate of Titusville High School, Coach Perry returned to his alma mater in 1995 and served as coach for Titusville High School's football team until 2018. His remarkable coaching career spanned nearly two and a half decades, during which he molded young athletes into champions on and off the field.

Coach Perry's proudest moments extended beyond his coaching accolades. He cherished being a father to Erron Fayson, Lonnie Fayson, Twanda Williams, Ralph Williams, Duane Williams, and Dereck Williams, as well as a loving husband to Diane Williams, whom he married on June 3, 1981.

In addition to his remarkable career and family, Coach Perry served his country as an MP and airborne ranger from 1973 to 1977.

Coach Perry Williams is survived by his wife, Diane Williams, his children, Erron Fayson, Lonnie Fayson, Twanda Williams, Ralph Williams, Duane Williams, and Dereck Williams, his 20 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren; siblings, Catherine Williams, Earline Williams, Roosevelt Williams (Sonya); Grant Howard Jr., Arthur Williams, M.L. Howard, Priscilla Howard, Essie Jr. Evans, Robert Gordon (Marie), Betty Williams, Gloria Williams.
