Gordon Russell Williams was born Oct. 26, 1934, in Three Forks, Mont., to Lester and Beatrice Williams. On March 5, 2022, after a long and arduous battle with his health, he went to be with the Lord surrounded by those who loved him most: his wife of nearly 62 years and their children. His uncle Elwood gave him the nickname “Squirt,” which stuck with him throughout his life. He was always known fondly as “Grandpa Squirt” by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
