Michael Williams


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Michael John Williams, of River Ryan, Nova Scotia on January 14th, 2024 at the age of 64 after a short battle with cancer surrounded by family and friends in Hospice Cape Breton. 

Michael was born in New Waterford and was the son of the late Michael and Edith Williams (Francis). Michael is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Anne (MacDonald) Williams; daughter Melissa (Blaise) McNeil; son Mitchell Williams; grandchildren Blaise, Ainslee, Charlie, Nathan and Nicholas. 

Michael was an avid electric guitar player and had an ear for music. Music was a large part of Michael's life. He loved to show off his guitar collection and would play a song for all that would listen. He was always known for keeping up on the best technology that was available and helping those in the community that wanted to learn about new gadgets and technology. 

Michael's family meant everything to him.
Michael made frequent trips to visit his grandchildren who he loved very much. He called his grandchildren his "little heart beats" because that's what kept him going. He loved them so much and if he wasn't spending time with them physically he would be face timing them for hours at a time which they absolutely adored.  

Michael is also survived by his 6 siblings, sisters; Margaret (Eli), Darlena, Tasha (Rob); brothers Allen (Patsy), Vernon, Roger (Rose Marie); brother in laws Cyril (Saleha) and John (Karel); sister in law Donna (Robert). He is also survived by many nephews and nieces who held a special place in his heart and loved to spend time with him. Last but certainly not least Michael will be missed by his two pet cockatiel birds, Mozart and Yoshi who he spoiled daily with love and special treats. 

The family would like to thank the Hospice Cape Breton Centre for their exceptional care they have provided Michael in his time of need. 
In keeping with Michael’s wishes, cremation has taken place under the care and direction of McLellan Funeral Home, New Waterford NS. (902)-862-7500. A Celebration of Life may take place at a later date. You may share photos and express your words of comfort and condolence directly to the family by signing
