Ron “Willie” Williams is a retired literature, composition, and history teacher with national distinction as a “Master Teacher” and the equivalent of three master’s degrees. He is addicted to “Aha” moments—forever anticipating the next one for himself and his fellow sojourners along life’s journey.

Ordained a Catholic deacon in 1994, he leads church missions, serves as clergy for prison retreats and homeless shelters, and is a spiritual director and counselor. He is a home remodeler, flower gardener, avid Chicago sports fan, and winner of Toastmasters International awards. His sanity is questionable as he is also addicted to the five-hundred-mile Camino, “The Way,” hiking it two and a half times—so far.

Employed as a corporate chaplain, Willie lives near Chicago, Illinois. He treasures his bride of forty-six years, five children, and six grandchildren whom he relishes taking on “Papa adventures.”
