Dylan Michael Williams

December 31, 1985 ~ July 16, 2022 (age 36)


Dylan Michael Williams, age 36, of Corning, NY passed away at home on Saturday, July 16, 2022. He was born December 31, 1985, in Syracuse, NY to Clayton G. and Patricia A. Williams. Through life’s hardships, Dylan was courageous and never stopped fighting. 

Dylan was a contractor working for Bright Ideas by Martinec in Big Flats. He was fortunate to work alongside of close friends and often selflessly worked on house projects for friends and family outside of work. Indeed, Dylan had a big heart–he was always saying yes to helping others and trying to see the good in everyone. He often said that we should be kind to others because you never know what they have going on in their lives.  

He enjoyed many outdoor activities, including kayaking and camping. Every year he looked forward to celebrating the fathers in his life with an annual large family camping trip across New York State parks. Dylan was charismatic, outgoing, and had a fun-loving spirit. Above all else, though, he loved and cared deeply for his family and friends, always prioritizing spending time with them and helping them.  

In addition to camping, Dylan loved traveling with Candy and the kids. They went on several cruises and road trips, to Mexico, Chicago, Myrtle Beach, and beyond. He was always a hopeless romantic and loving husband. 

A life-long music lover, Dylan felt lyrics deeply and saw music as an expression of himself. 

Dylan is survived by his Wife, Candy Williams; Children, Cheyanne Harndon and Jerome Alston; Siblings, Ryan (Amy) Wart, Adam (Kate) Williams, Bailey (Brian) Merritt, and AJ Dehors; several Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces and Nephews; and, his beloved cat Sheba who followed him everywhere. He was a thoughtful and dedicated father, Uncle Dill, and a beloved Brother, Friend and Son who will always hold a special place in our hearts.

He was predeceased by his mother, Patricia Williams, and his grandparents, George and Norma Williams and Irene Sweatland. 

Private services will be held with the family.
