Prominent Greensboro attorney Jim Williams, whose service to Wake Forest University earned him the title “life trustee,” died Monday at 78. A first generation college student, he was a 1962 graduate of Wake Forest, where he was a standout tackle on the football team. “Jim Williams embodied the spirit of Wake Forest as well as anyone I know,” said Nathan Hatch, the University’s president. “I will always fondly remember a conversation soon after we met about how he saw his vocation as a lawyer as a moral enterprise. Indeed, his life demonstrated what it is to be a professional for the public good. His service to his family, his alma mater and his community has been exemplary in every respect, and we are grateful for his many contributions.”
