As he had moved to America at the age of seven, Williams served in the U.S. military, first as a private in the Mexican Border Campaign of 1916, in the A.E.F. from 1907-1918, and as a Lt. Commander in the U.S. Navy in WW II. He was an electrical engineer with Consolidated Edison Co. in New York City.
