Allen Clifton Williams Jr departed this life on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, at his home in Port Sulphur, La. He was 84 years old and a native and lifelong resident of Plaquemines Parish, La. He was born on August 31, 1936, to the union of Allen and Margaret Parker Williams Sr. He was one of ten children. Allen accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior early in life. As time passed, though he grew weak physically he remained strong in his faith.
Allen, “Uncle Boy” or, “LP&L Man” as he was affectionately known was one of the first African American men to be employed by LP&L, known today as Energy. In the early 1950s, he worked as a mechanic at Kirby’s Gas Station which is in Port Sulphur, La. Later in life he worked as the Meter Reader with Entergy until he retired in 2000 after 33 years of dedicated service.
He was a man of many strengths, talents, and trades. He could repair and build boat motors, and perform car maintenance. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and farming. He always had a yard full of animals such as rabbits, raccoons, sheep and goats. No matter the time of the day, you could catch him in the yard knitting a trolling net. You would know when Uncle Boy was in the neighborhood when you see all the children scatter because he would chase them with his dentures. He enjoyed going to casinos and when it was time for him to step out, he would be well dressed with his Kangol Hat. He never had much to give but he always had a stick of spearmint gum for anyone so that he could show his love and affection.
Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Pamela Phillips Williams, his children Dale Williams, and Pamela Williams. His two sisters, Doris Mackey and Agnes Encalade. 9 grandchildren, Dale and Giana Phillips, Tremaine, Jasmine, O’leya Williams, Dayshar, and Calvin Mackey. Triana Ancar, and Harmoine Tinson. He was the father figure to Fabiola Morris, Christiana Mackey, Herbert Ancar Jr, Tomeika St. Cyr, and Tiffany Hart. He is also survived by 3 godchildren, Ernest Mackey, Tasha Robinson, and Torandus Morris. Allen is also survived by 20 great grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Allen and Margaret Parker Williams Sr., 8 siblings, Audrey Encalade, Wilbert Williams, Mary Jane Gibson, Irene, Corine, Felix, and John Williams. 1 step – child, Contina Phillips, 2 godchildren, Dan Ragas and Matilda Encalade, and 1 great grandchild, Oriana Duplessis.
