Mario Williams born August 13, 1982 to Veronica Jones and Harold Williams Jr. There wasn’t anything unlucky about this number 13. Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he hit the ground running, rather by rolling from walkers and Big Wheels to “borrowed” cars; he stayed on the move, legal or illegal.
Mario is the biological father to both, Bre’Aijah Evans-Williams, and Brandyn Evans-Williams. He is also a father to Ka’Nasia, Kaiya, Ka’Neysa, and Ke’Arah whom he shared a home with, along with his wife, Ayana Baggett-Williams. Mario and Ayana were married on June 20, 2016. He is also a grandfather, believe it or not, to Lailanni and A’Moura.
Mario is preceded in death by his mother, Veronica Jean Jones; his maternal grandparents, Robert Edmerson and Bessie Edmerson; and paternal grandparents, Harold Williams Sr., and Ola Jean Williams. He leaves behind to cherish his memories, Karla Kenny (Jones) nee, Octavius Kenny, and D’Andre Williams; nephews, Elijah, Malcolm, Reign, and D’Andre Jr.; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, not to mention his Parktown and West End family.
