In Memory of

  Army Cadet Kurt L. Williams 

1980 - 2004 


The unit was notified today of the death of Cadet Kurt L. Williams, age 23. According to a family member, Kurt was killed in a boating accident on Lake of the Ozarks, Saturday, July 31, 2004.

Cadet Williams had been a member of the 414th Military Police Company since joining the military in Spring 2002. Williams learned quickly and within a short time of being promoted to Specialist made an early career decision to become an Army Officer.

Kurt had graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor's of Science in Criminal Justice from Southwest Baptist University and anxiously awaited the completion of one final class needed to accomplish his commissioning goal. He was a member of First Baptist Church of Houstonia. He worked for Home Court Advantage, a juvenile care and group home facility in Bolivar, where he was a support staff counselor, assisting residents with anger management and teaching them daily living skills.

He had already shown outstanding leadership abilities and had assumed an active role as Platoon Leader in the 414th here at home, while a portion of the unit was deployed to Afghanistan. His knowledge and willingness to accomplish any mission will be greatly missed.

Those who have served with Cadet Williams will remember him as an energetic, fun-loving, young man always ready and willing to do whatever was required of him. His presence has been a valuable asset to his leaders and his peers.

Cadet William's funeral was at 2:00pm August 03, 2004 at the First Baptist Church in Sedalia, MO.

Survivors include his parents, of the home; three sisters, Neena Williams, of Jefferson City, Shelley Williams of Sedalia, and Loretta Williams of the home; his paternal grandparents, Harold and Marilyn Williams of Hughesville; and his maternal grandfather Francis Worsham, of Rogersville, Missouri. He was preceeded in death by his maternal grandmother, Helen Worsham.
