301 Leck, at 89 years old, was the picture of health. The only time he'd ever been in the hospital was in 1955 to have his tonsils out.

He lived totally independently, drove everywhere, worked in his yard, volunteered with the hospital auxiliary and the 1st Baptist Church of Sylacauga ramp ministry.

He started having minor chest pains and a heart cath revealed one artery was 100% blocked, another 98% and a third 75%. Since his health was exceptionally good otherwise, he and his doctor elected to have bypass surgery. Ended up doing 4 bypasses in late October. The heart surgery went well and a full recovery was expected, but he developed pneumonia afterward. He had an extremely hard time shaking that and had to get a tracheostomy. He also got a kidney infection. Still, he improved enough to go to a regular room while awaiting a room in rehab. The trach was out and he was to leave in a couple of days when the kidney infection caused sepsis. Back to ICU. He had to be re-trached and the massive antibiotics for the sepsis caused C-diff.

Even with all that he was slowly improving, but on Christmas Eve, 2016, he went into tachycardia and his blood pressure plummeted. His body simply couldn't pull out of this and he slipped away from us. He had given it all he had. We all expected him to recover and resume his normal life, but God had other plans.

315 Obituary from The Daily Home, 14 April 2015:

Kenneth Charles Williams, Southside, Alabama, was born October 22, 1951 and passed away to be with God and his deceased family on April 12, 2015, at the age of 63. Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Thursday, April 16, 2015 at Collier-Butler Funeral Home and burial will be at Williams-Southside Memorial Park with Mike Williams and Greg Barnett officiating. The family will accept friends from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at the funeral home. Collier-Butler Funeral and Cremation Services is directing. Ken is survived by his loving wife Betsy; son, Ken Williams, Jr. (Megan); daughter, Erin Barnett (Greg); grandchildren, Matthew, Savannah, Meghan, Ava, and Parker. He is also survived by his brother, Mike (Barbara), Birmingham, AL; sister, Kathy Davis Suit (Larry) Atlanta, GA; and brother, Keith (Kay), Southside, AL. He was predeceased by his father, Isaac, mother, Lamurel; and sister, Patricia Palmer (Winston). He is also survived by a host of nephews and nieces. Ken was born in Sylacauga, Alabama, to Isaac and Lamurel Williams, the fourth of five children. He attended B.B. Comer School in Sylacauga. He enjoyed the outdoors as much as anyone could enjoy this planet that God allows us to live on. When he was young, he roamed every branch and creek that was available, and his collection of snakes, tadpoles, frogs, and bugs when he was young was a site to see. He could fish and collect various insects and animals in Shelton Creek for hours on end. As a matter of fact, he showed up one day from one of his adventures with a water moccasin in an oil can, and he was poking a stick at it. Our mother did a semi-circle and passed out, falling off the porch. Afterwards, he kept the snake catching to himself. Ken was an excellent marksman from an early age and could site and shoot snakes better than anyone around. This guy loved swimming and could swim in Lake Louise in Sylacauga for hours on end, until daddy picked him up from work. Ken was a hard worker and never met anyone he didn't like. These traits would follow him throughout his life. Ken was a marine and was honorably discharged. After the Marines, he started out working with GATX at various construction sites throughout the US building large storage tanks. He learned a lot about welding while working with them and afterwards began working as a salesman, selling welding supplies and equipment in Greenville, South Carolina. At this time, he was married to his first wife, Dianne, and they had two children, Kenny and Erin. He decided to go into the welding business, moved back home to Alabama with his young family, and opened Dixie Welding Supply. He worked many nights and weekends to make his business work in the beginning. Today, it is a successful business due to his entrepreneurial abilities and the desire to succeed. He has many friends and business partners that helped his succeed, and he was thankful for their business and guidance through the years. Ken met the "love of his life" Betsy Clay, and they married 19 years ago. They bought a home on the Coosa River that loved. Ken enjoyed hunting immensely and has the pictures, wall mounts, and friends' hunting stories to prove it. He could stay in the woods for hours and days doing something he loved. Ken's love of the water never left him. He loved snorkeling and scuba diving in the Caribbean as much as anyone. He, along with Betsy, made many trips to the Caribbean to enjoy the warm clear waters. Ken had a swimming pool at his and Betsy's home, and taught many children how to swim (generally by throwing them in the pool and telling them to swim or drown.) Nephews and nieces spent many days with Ken and Betsy enjoying their beautiful home. Ken was a kind and generous man and enjoyed having folks in his home. He celebrated life and events as good as anyone can. He loved having people around him, and people enjoyed being with him. We loved Ken and will miss him. Pallbearers will be Matthew Williams, Scott Clay, Keith Williams, Joseph clay, Zak Mayne, and Daniel Williams. Online condolences may be made at www.collier-butler.com

Mitchell states that Martha Ann Baggett was born 12 March 1849, but give no source of how they know the date. For now, I'll leave my records with what we know from her death certificate and headstone, simply 1849. Baggett, Martha Ann (I462)
