Douglas Darrell Williamson

Douglas Darrell Williamson, 68 years old, went to be with the Lord on August 27th, 2021. He was born in Houston, Texas on May 22nd 1953.

Mr. Williamson graduated from Milby High School in 1971 after being transferred from Ross Sterling High School following his junior year due to school zoning. He was always a Sterling Raider at heart.

He attended San Jacinto College where he received his Associate of Arts degree in 1973. He also attended the University of Houston where he would go on to achieve his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in 1976.

He was a proud South Belt/Ellington area resident since 1979. Mr. Williamson was a current deacon at South Main Baptist Church where he became a member in 1992.

Darrell was an avid Astros fan, a season ticket holder for many years, and he was proud to have attended the very first National League game in Houston (Colt 45’s) with his father and brothers in 1962. His love for his Astros would most definitely continue throughout his life. He would later go on to coach youth baseball for Sagemont Beverly Hills Little League, as well as coach youth basketball for Upward Sports, in which he loved doing dearly.

Mr. Williamson joined the Boy Scouts of America in the mid-1980’s as an Assistant Scout leader and mentor for many children, in which he stayed dedicated to for nearly 25 years.

He loved books, especially Texas History, Civil War History, U.S. History, and Maritime History.


Although he loved these things dearly…. Nothing surpasses the love he had for his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


Darrell was preceded in death by his father; Charles Douglas Williamson and mother; Louise Grimes Williamson. He is survived by his brothers: Wendell Williamson and Darwin Williamson; Nephews: Nathan Williamson and Noah Williamson; Nieces: Annalena Williamson and Danielle Faith Williamson; Sister-in- law: Stephanie Williamson (Wendell’s wife), as well as numerous cousins and other relatives.


Blended Family: Richard, Nancy, Debra, Richard Jr., and Edward Holt. Sandra, Ricky, Rose, Dave, Stacy, Abby, Savannah, Leah, Maddie, Thor, Ireland, Keegan, Kyler, Connor, Luke, Rosa, and Richard Gomez.


A Memorial service will be held Wednesday September 8th, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. in the sanctuary at South Main Baptist Church in Pasadena; 4300 E. Sam Houston Pkwy S.


The family wishes to thank all of the doctors and nursing staff at Southeast Memorial Hospital who cared for Darrell during his illness. Special thanks to the South Main Baptist Church family for all of the prayers and support during this time.

  6. Darrell will be greatly missed by all of us. I know holidays will not be the same without him. He was always happy to bake his delicious pies to share with us all. I am saddened by his loss, but understand he’s gained his wings to be by God’s side. There’s no more suffering for him as he is in peace now.

  7. Sending my most heartfelt condolences on the loss of Darrell. He was truly an amazing man who selflessly helped those he loved. His immeasurable knowlegde on so many subjects will surely be missed. I will always admire how strong his conviction was when it came to his faith and his church and I feel at peace knowing that he is with the Lord.

    “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
    Romans 8:35, 37- 39ñ
