Gideon LaXavier Williams was born the 4th child to the union of Gerry & Gwen Williams on December 5th, 1981, in Chicago, Illinois. Gideon was a comical child and had a great sense of humor. He had an infectious smile and was very rambunctious and full of energy. He was very happy and was the protector for the women in his family. Gideon attended school #90 and Northwest High School.
Gideon cherished his relationship with his baby girl, G’Niah Marie. He was a loving father and G’Niah fondly remembers trips to the park with him and their family game nights. He would always beat her in Uno, but he couldn’t touch her in Trouble! He enjoyed taking her on family vacations, the most recent was the beach in the summer of 2021.
Gideon married the love of his life, Stephanie Danielle, on December 5th, 2018. Gideon and Stephanie were inseparable. Gideon told Stephanie she was beautiful every morning, and they enjoyed joking and laughing about everyday things. Gideon’s idea of a turn-up was good food and a line up of action movies. Gideon’s stepsons, Antwan, Terrel, and Stephan, have fond memories of him. Antwan looked forward to their time spent working on his double dribble, and Terrel enjoyed rides to the gas station with loud bangs in the car.
Gideon really loved his family and was always cheesing hard, showing his golds. He loved to dance, even though he had no rhythm- but you couldn’t tell him that! He loved going to help his mom with whatever she needed fixed or done. He would run to the rescue for his siblings when they called – biological and in-laws.
Gideon was preceded in death by his grandparents and nephew, Josiah.
