Obituary for David Ernest Williamson David Ernest Williamson, 57, passed away of natural causes in his home in Fairhope, Al., on June 27, 2018. Dave was born in New Orleans, La., on Feb. 3, 1961, “baby” of the family, the fourth child of E.L. “Chick” and Trudy Williamson. The Williamsons moved to the Northshore in the early ‘60s, one of the “pioneer” families of Tchefuncte Club Estates. His early years there shaped his whole life, including pastimes and hobbies His future as an avid outdoorsman, hunting and fishing whenever possible, began as a child “fishing” for crawfish in mud holes in the front yard with a piece of string, safety piece and piece of bacon. He excelled at both golf and tennis, continuing both sports as an adult. He was a member of Covington Presbyterian Church. He attended Country Day in New Orleans and graduated from St. Paul’s School. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma, with a degree in Petroleum Land Management, and friends and good memories from his time as a member of Alpha Tau Omega. Following graduation, he went to work for Fina Petroleum in its marking department. At the same time, he earned an MBA from the University of Tampa. Time with friends, including members of his tennis league in Tampa, or days spent on the water in either kayak or jet ski rounded out his days. He moved to Fairhope as he became more engaged in managing the family business. Our beloved Dave is preceded in death by his father E.L. “Chick” Williamson. He is survived by a family who loved him completely and intensely: his mother Trudy Williamson; his older brother Dick; sisters Judy and husband Steve Blaising, and Nan and her husband Herb Hamilton. Other survivors include his adoring nephew Jack Blaising and niece Meg Hamilton, and cousins, aunt and uncle. A private memorial service was held June 30, 2018 at Fielding’s in Covington.
