I never lost a game. I just run out of time.
Kwasie Lamont Williams was born on October 2,1994 to Kwasie Baddy and Jennifer Williams at East Georgia Regional Hospital in Statesboro Georgia. Kwasie ran out of time on February 9, 2023. He was a lifelong resident of Candler County and a 2013 graduate of Metter High School. During his high school career, he was a member of the Metter High School Tiger Football Team and the Metter Tiger Baseball Team.
Kwaise attended East Georgia College in Swainsboro. In 2017 he received his commercial driver’s licenses and began driving trucks. His last employment was with Freeport Transportation, Rincon, GA.
At an early age, he joined Jones Temple Pentecostal Church of Deliverance, and he was currently affiliated with Open Door Worship Center. Kwasie was a devoted Christian. With his charming personality, extraordinary way with words and unforgettable smile, he drew many people to the Lord. Kwasie never met a stranger, he truly was a beacon of light to all who knew him.
Kwaise had a great love for music. This love began when he was just a young boy, playing drums in his family’s church. He joined the Metter Tiger Marching Band in high school, further honing his percussion skills. As an adult, he played the drums to the glory of God as often as possible.
Kwasie brought much enthusiasm and joy to the lives of his family and friends. He was outspoken, firm, loving and a very comical individual. He wrote in his senior yearbook, “You either get better or worse, but you never stay the same. Time flies and so does life, so Have Fun!”
Kwasie was preceded in death by one sister, Hope Dallas Williams.
He leaves to cherish precious memories: his father, Kwasie Baddy, Marietta, GA; his mother, Jennifer Williams, Metter, GA; two brothers, Keondre Williams and Kenodrick Henry both of Metter, GA; one sister, Karianna Williams, Metter, GA; his loving and devoted maternal grandmother known as “Moma Sarah”, Sarah Oglesby, Metter, GA; maternal grandfather, Curtis Gordon, Metter, GA; his loving and devoted paternal grandmother known as “Ma Brenda”, Brenda Baddy, Marietta, GA; paternal grandfather, Willie James Bacon, Gainesville, GA; a loving great-grandmother, Lillie Mae Smart, Buford, GA; a special "Grandma", Pastor Hattie Gordon, Stillmore, GA; three special uncles, Jeffrey Oglesby, Javis Oglesby and Barry Rutherford; cousins raised as siblings, Dina, Elijah, Emya, and Ethan; a special friend and mentor, Jim Pittman, host of uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.
