My son, John Isaac Williams, and his father, Sammie L. Williams, of Rochester Hills MI were killed in an automobile accident. Isaac and his Dad were traveling through Canada while en route to Buffalo, New York to participate in the USA Track & Field Junior Olympics national competition. In the spirit of Isaac’s caring and giving nature, his organs were donated and have given the gift of life to four other individuals in Canada.
Isaac would have been a senior at Rochester Adams High School, where he was a member of the track team. Isaac was also the only member of his school track team to join a summer track club (Maximum Output Track Club) and continued to enhance his abilities, qualifying for the 4 x 100 relay at the Junior Olympics national competition in Buffalo. Isaac was quite an athlete, and in addition to his love of track, he also played basketball, football, and enjoyed roller blading.
Isaac did not achieve his dreams, or the dreams that we had for him, but he is still running the race through his memorial scholarship track fund. The purpose of the memorial scholarship fund is to honor John Isaac Williams and his love of track by assisting deserving young men and women to excel and reach their highest potential in the sport. Scholarship recipients will possess the qualities that exemplify academic and athletic achievement, in addition to possessing a caring nature.
