We are sorry to report that Art Williams, a long time employee for Ithaca College Mail Services passed away on June 8, 2020.

Art started working at IC in 1988 following a distinguished 25 year career in the United States Army.

As a member of the campus Mail Services team, Art was a welcome and familiar figure all around campus for students, faculty and staff.

Services will be private due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Art was a beloved member of the campus community!
Is there any word if we can send any kind of support be it
commemorations, photos, or sending love to his family?

A Message From Marvin and Denise: We are sincerely thankful
and grateful for all of the many condolences and kind gestures
as we mourn the loss of our beloved ‘Pop’ and ‘Daddy\'. He was
special to many but most of all he was the best Father we
could have ever hoped for. Unfortunately, we were not able to
meet any of his beloved Ithaca College family. Please accept
our gratitude and sincere thanks for embracing our Father as
one of your own. A special thanks to Julie in HR for all your
help and coworker Cheryl for always showing concern. In lieu
of flowers, contributions in Art’s memory may be made to the
Ithaca College Scholarship Fund, 953 Danby Road, Ithaca, NY
14850.

Art was a master of all opinions, and they were usually funny. He never hurried to do anything, and that was a lesson I tried (and failed) to follow. How he could see out of those Coke bottle glasses, I\'ll never know. I smile when I think of him. He will be missed by many for many years to come.

I had so many wonderful conversations with Art. Art loved
talking about his family and how wonderful his
grandchildren are. He truly was an icon at Ithaca College.
He\'ll be missed.

This is indeed sad news. Art was one of the first people I got to know at Ithaca College when I started here over 12 years ago. We spoke almost every day. My duties through the years changed, and I didn't see him nearly as often these past few years, but I always made a point for a quick chat whenever I ran into him on his mail run across campus. He will be missed.

I was so saddened to learn of the passing of Art. I knew from
the moment I met Art that he was a very special person.
Being a veteran myself, I am so proud to have known him, to
learn more of his distinguished military career and his years
as a very dedicated Ithaca College employee! Everyone in the
building knew what time frame his was on each floor (down
to the second) to pick up mail and would often run down to
catch him. He was always timely, kind, funny, and very neat
about his appearance. He loved his children and grandchildren.

Please consider giving to the Ithaca College Scholarship
Fund listed in his Obituary.

He made the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of his country
and very honorably! He is our hero! RIP Art
