Obituary

Our beloved father, grandfather and husband, Harry Williams died on May 31, 2020, just 3 days short of celebrating his sixty ninth wedding anniversary to his beloved wife Louise Pecora Williams on June 2, 2020.

A life-long Yonkers resident from his birth on Oct 28, 1922, Harry served in the US Army during the second world war from December 1942 until December 1945; seeing action in the European theater during and after the D-Day invasion. Harry was a bricklayer by trade and was a member of the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers of America, (formerly the Bricklayers, Masons and Plasterers Union of America, the oldest continuously operating trade union in North America).

After working for 35 years on many high-rise structures throughout NYC and Westchester County, Harry founded his own construction company, Hazelton Builders Inc., later renamed Hazelton Homes. Specializing in residential construction, Harry was well regarded among his peers for his honesty, perfectionism and often excessive work ethic that was marked by his constant chiding of co-workers who could not keep up with his explosive energy that lasted up to his retirement at age 68. After years of hard work, Harry surprised us all by indulging Louise in over twenty glorious cruises and annual trips to Florida.

He is survived by his wife Louise Pecora Williams, his son Christopher (Mary-Beth); his three daughters; Linda Yazurlo, Tina Williams and Louise Williams; six grandchildren, Nicole Yazurlo, Michael Yazurlo, Matthew Yazurlo, Kevin Williams, Amy Williams and Peter Boger; and Ollie Williams, his miniature dachshund.

I enjoyed watching my father's Bell & Howell 8mm home movies from the mid-50's. I think people entertained more often back then, taking turns hosting for family and friends. The guys all wore suits, overcoats, and hats. Aunt Louise always told me that Harry and Vincent Sr. were good friends. At this particular get together at my house in Homefield, Harry and Louise and all were having a great time. I was drinking beer with my father.
I see Chris mentioned the workers Harry would hire to help him with his houses. What Chris doesn't know is that Jomo and I were probably responsible for one of his houses coming in over budget. I was given the task of breaking down an small boulder with a sledge hammer; Jomo had to paint a door. Well, by lunch the boulder was about the same size and I couldn't straighten out my wrist or fingers in my right hand. Jomo didn't get to eat lunch--by 3pm he was still painting one side of the door! Harry's bark was always worse than his bite--he was great to work for--very much like Uncle Pete.
Rest in Peace, Uncle Harry. I'll miss you. Love and Condolences to Aunt Louise, Chris, Linda, Tina, and Louise and your families.
Vinny, Kwang Ja, Matt, Catie, and Maria.

My first memories of Uncle Harry were from my early childhood visits to Undercliff St, the huge Pecora family Victorian home. I remember that Uncle Harry seemed used to the houseful of Italian-American chatter, the eh?'s and aaaahhh!'s which punctuated the lively conversation. There were always joking and definitely great eating during our visits. I also remember his pride in his work and the sheer perfection of it. He was always there with Aunt Louise through thick and then. It seems like yesterday, but the years have hurdled onward. Time is so relentless. I pray for him and all his loved ones.

Harry would often hire random people to work on his construction projects. A mixed bag of his children's classmates, boyfriends, cousins, cousin's boyfriends, or just employment ad respondents were fair game. Regardless of their skill level or experience, they would be subject to a running, real-time, no-holds barred commentary on their performance. The weakest (usually on their first or second day) would not return from lunch, which could not come soon enough. Those who stuck it out learned some valuable life lessons, especially the importance of staying in school!

I’ve know Harry (better known to me as my 2nd Dad) since 1980. He was a good man. I’m going to miss him. My condolences to the family. Love you.
