Obituary for Howard George Williams

Howard George Williams passed away peacefully in the city he loved, New York City, on November 10th, 2023. He was born in Pueblo Colorado to his parents George and Maree Williams. He is predeceased by his parents and his sister Ana Williams.
Howard completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Colorado and then went on to The University of Michigan for Grad School and lived in Ann Arbor for many years, enjoying post-college life in this culturally rich community.
Howard was a gregarious, smiling, opinionated lover of books, art, architecture, and a love of urban life. He moved to New York City to be with his partner Michael Alhonte (deceased in 1995) an Opera singer for the New York City Opera and instantly became a NYC-phile. He met his husband, Todd Mick, two weeks after Todd moved to New York City in 1998 and they recently celebrated 25 yrs together this August. They enjoyed a wonderful life of culture, travel, summer with friends on Fire Island and his passion for cooking the weekly recipes in The New York Times Cooking section.
He had a successful career in Technology at DLG, Time Warner, and MFUG and worked with some amazing colleagues in the industry.
He was a huge supporter and eventually led The Second Tuesday Lecture Series at The LGBT Center in New York City, the longest running cultural program at The Center showcasing speakers representing every major cultural award including the Pulitzer Prize, Tony’s, Grammy’s and the Lambda Literary Awards. He further led the Pat Parker/Vito Russo Library Book Club at The LGBT Center and was an active member of the Stonewall Book Club in Wilton Manors, Florida, where he recently retired with his husband Todd.
