As he had since he was a youngster, he was saving money for his future -- whatever it might hold.
All that came ended Thursday night when Williams was struck by a hit-and-run driver as he took a walk.
He died Monday morning.
"He was strong. He was a beautiful soul. He is going to be missed so much," said his mother, Kim Sandate of Orland.
Cloverdale police are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the driver.
Williams left his stepfather's house at 7:35 Thursday night, Sandate said. "He got up and said 'I'm going to take a walk.' He walked just a few blocks," she said.
He was struck at about 7:50 p.m. while walking along Citrus Fair Drive under the Highway 101 overpass. He was spotted lying partially in the roadway by the driver of a passing Sonoma County Transit bus. He was taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital and never regained consciousness.
Williams, the third of seven siblings, graduated from Orland High School last June. He wrestled in high school and loved being outdoors, Sandate said.
"Fishing, golfing, anything," she said.
Cloverdale Police are asking for the public's help in identifying any suspicious vehicles that may have been in the area of Citrus Fair Drive between Cloverdale Boulevard and Asti Road at the time of the crash.
