Jacob Alexandar “Jake” Williams, 24, of Big Island, passed away on Thursday, July 1, 2021 in Ecorse, Michigan. He was born in Bedford, VA on September 19, 1996, a son of Brandy McGinn Knighting and husband, Roy. Jake was a free spirit who enjoyed exploring and traveling the country. He loved hunting with his Poppy Price, hiking, and camping. Jake had many talents and one thing he was very good at was cooking. He made quite a mess doing it but the family always loved his creations. One of his favorite pastimes was sitting by the train tracks and watching the trains go by with his sister. Some of his mother’s fondest memories are the weeks at the beach and all the salty kisses he would give. Jake lived life to the fullest and pursued his passion for traveling. He and his Nanny used to watch Peter Pan all the time. The second star to the right shines in the night for you, Jake, and we will always know where to find you. In addition to his mother and step-father he is survived by his sister, Christina Williams; niece, Sophia Coles; grandparents, Nancy and John Price, Jan and Phil Williams; uncle, Dan Williams and wife Maureen; and several cousins. No services will be held. Arrangements by Burch-Messier Funeral Home, Bedford, 540-586-7360.
