On October 10, 2019, Anthony Leon "Top Chopper" Williamson, 53, resident of Myrtle, left this world the same way he came into it---in a junkyard.

Bankhead. Bro. Vic Garrison will officiate and burial, with Military Honors, will follow at Locust Grove Cemetery in Union County.
Anthony was born March 6, 1966 in Newton, MS, the son of the late Lonnie Leon and Sheila Bonifay Williamson.
A proud United Air Force Veteran, Anthony was employed with the Regal Truck Stop in New Albany.
Anthony to most, Daddy to us, Lucky Two and Paw to his favorite few. There wasn't anything he couldn't do! The expression "he would give you the shirt off his back" was the reality of who Paw was. He wouldn't pass a person in need of help without stopping and lending a helping hand.
Anthony loved his wife and children so very much and was so proud of them. Later in life he found so much joy in playing with his grandkids. He never saw them without bringing them candy and toys. He enjoyed many things from tinkering with cars, trucks and small engines to cheering for his football teams.
Anthony was a simple man with a huge heart of god! Honest and hard working until the end. He will be missed and loved always. Everything he taught and instilled in us all will live on forever. Until we meet again, Rest in Peace Paw. We love you old man.
Visitation will continueTuesday from 10 AM until service time at 2 PM at New Albany Funeral and Cremation Care. (662)539-7000.
