Scott White Williams


Ponte Vedra Beach, FL — Scott White Williams, 68, died in his home on September 14, 2015 after a nine month battle with cancer. He was born in Manchester, NH to Frank Howard Williams and Priscilla (White) Williams.

Scott was a member of the US Air Force and a graduate of the University of Maine. He grew up in Dover, NH and Brewer, ME and settled in Portland ME where he had all three of his children. After a stint with the phone company, and with two small children at home, he took a job with Mark Stimson Realtors. That was to become his calling card as he built his career with many clients he called friends. He became the top salesperson in the company and moved the family to Falmouth, ME in the early 1980s.

He was introduced to the love of his life, Robin, in 1993 on a blind date. They enjoyed many years of travel, golf and amazing friendships, all while growing their careers and family.

In 2000, they moved to Ponte Vedra Beach, FL where they embraced their newfound beach community. They lived life to the fullest, joined by their children who followed them to their new home. Scott took a job as Managing Broker for Ponte Vedra Club Realty, President of Gate Realty and Vice President of Stockton Real Estate, Inc.

The Williams’ were known for their unbridled hospitality and their ability to make anyone feel at home. Their friends from Maine would visit often and always had a place to call their own. Scott was the consummate “grill-meister” and Robin was the “Martha Stewart” of the beach. The distance between Maine and Florida was always a very short one in their hearts.

Scott loved many things: great friends, golf, a fine glass of wine, his New England Patriots and, most of all, his wife and family. He was a great listener and, in turn, he was a great source of advice to anyone who was willing to hear the truth. He represented the epitome of caring — especially when it came to folks who wanted to grow in career, in life and in depth of character.

Scott went peacefully in the presence of family. He is survived by his loving spouse, Robin, his mother Priscilla, his three children and their spouses Scott W. Williams, Jr. and his wife Jaclyn, his daughter Hillary Leedy and her husband Justin and his son Seth H. Williams and his wife Pamela. He is also survived by his three grandchildren Avery Rose Williams, Benjamin Paul Leedy and Sophia Williams and his brothers and sisters and their spouses Craig and Linda, Stuart and Deb, Cyndy and Al Adams, Valerie Bartnick and Kim and Jim Economos as well as many nieces and nephews.

Services: Thursday, Sept. 23, Christ Episcopal Church, 400 San Juan Drive, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, Thursday, September 24 at 1:30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Scott’s memory to Mayo Clinic Department of Development, 200 First Street SW, Rochester, MN 55905.
