Some say that life is a game of chess - Albert was a master of both. Albert “Knotty Pine” Alphonso Williams II affectionately known as Knotty Pine, Al, and Pudney. He was born on December 7, 1937, in Washington D.C., Albert was the eldest of 16 children to the late Albert Sr. and Louise Gant - Williams.

 

Albert was educated in the D.C. Public school system. At a young age Albert joined the workforce alongside his father in the construction industry. As Albert’s family grew so did his work experience, spanning from private investigation for D.C. Superior Court, he was a professional limousine Chauffeur. He served sev- eral years on the Southeast Board of Collaboratives with D.C.’s Mayor Vincent Gray. He became an office administrator for several medical and non-medical businesses. He also became a medical supply transporter where he picked up and delivered medical supplies for patients and several medical offices.

 

At a young age, Albert became a born again Christian and enjoyed singing with the Northwest choirs around Washington, D.C. Always known for being such a snazzy dresser - he would always dress to the nines, with his cowboy boots and his fly hats. He also enjoyed a variety of sports and other activities, but none of them were as near to his heart as chess was.

 

As the patriarch of his family - no matter where Albert’s life journey took him - he always remained optimistic for his family and those he loved. He took life head on and was one of the most genuine and family oriented people you would ever meet.

Albert’s famous motto was, “I got me a grip and I won’t let go!” However, Friday August 20, 2021 that grip loosened just a bit as God stretched forth His almighty hand and Albert was swept away into that sweet by and by.

 

In submission to God’s perfect will, Albert leaves to cherish his memory of his children: Albert “KK” III, Tiffany (Demaine Broadie), Telilia (Lamont Scott). Grandchildren: Pre’Yon, N’Via, Tadem, and Precious. Siblings: Martha Smallwood(the late- Eugene “Butch”Smallwood, Beulah Wilson(the late-Russell Paul Wilson),Thelma Price(the late- James Gilbert Price), Sister Irenese Martin, Brothers: Walter Williams, Alvin and Keith Daniel Williams.

 

He is proceeded in death by his parents Albert Sr. and LouiseWilliams, his son, Cabbanis Anderson. Brothers: Paul Gray, David Williams, Bernard Williams, Sisters: Jean Dockery, Margaret Smith, Ella Mcknight, Sharon Williams, Susan Ann Howard, and Idell Williams.
