Brian Francis Williams, age 65 of Middleborough died unexpectedly on January 11, 2023 in Taunton. Brian was born on October 13, 1957 in Brockton and was the son of the late Marlborough (Mal) and Helen Marie (Belcher) Williams.

Brian graduated from Bridgewater-Raynham High School in Bridgewater where he was a member of the Golf Team and was very proficient in skipping school. He went on to manage Bob’s Big Boy Restaurant and Lobster Hut in Brockton before becoming one of the top sales agents for Prudential Insurance Company.
Brian is survived by two sisters to cherish his memory and his quirky sense of humor, Cheryl Aldridge and her husband Dennis of Sebring, FL and Freedom, NH and Kimberly Houghton of Somerset.
