Meca J. Williams

The mysterious angel of death has visited our family again and taken from our midst Meca Ja'von Williams on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013.

Born 38 years ago to the late Mrs. Betty Jean Williams and Mr. Johnny Robinson, he became a Christian and began his work in Christ's kingdom at Elizabeth Baptist Church in Florence, S.C.

He was educated in the Florence County School system, obtaining his diploma from West Florence High School in 1993. In November 1993, Meca enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps as a radio operator. He rose to the rank of master sergeant on March 1, 2013, and assumed the job of communications chief for 3rd Battalion 12th Marines at Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan.

He exemplified the Marine Corps Motto of Semper Fidelis, Always Faithful, not only to the Marine Corps but also to his family and friends. During his time in the Marine Corps, he had the opportunity to expand his horizons and work with several Marines whom he considered his brothers and sisters of the corps.

While stationed in Okinawa in 1998, he met the love of his life, Shawn Tamille Hagans. They were united in holy matrimony on Feb. 27, 2000. To this union two beautiful sons were born, Jalen Ja'von and Devin Jaden.

He was an avid Washington Redskins football fan and a computer whiz. He had an infectious smile and laugh. He loved his family, and that love was reciprocated.

Cherishing loving memories are his devoted wife of 13 years, Shawn; two sons; father Johnny Robinson; three brothers, Varick Williams (Judy), Kevin Robinson and Johnny Robinson II (Michelle); two sisters, Quavia Smith (Roy) and Krystal Johnson; mother-in-law Christine Rooks Walker; father-in-law S. Lee Hagans; brother-in-law Eric Hagans; sisters-in-law Adia Paige (Kevin), Krista Evans (Daryl); and a host of nephews, nieces, uncles, aunts, other relatives and friends.

A service will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, at Marine Corps Base Quantico Chapel. A graveside service will be held at 1:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, at Quantico National Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Meca J. Williams Memorial Fund, Box 165, Quantico, VA 22134-0165, or at any Marine Federal Credit Union branch.
