Bradly Ray Williams, 67, of Kanarraville, UT, passed away on June 3, 2021 in Cedar City, UT from complications of vascular dementia.\nBrad was born August 3, 1953 in Cedar City to Ronald Ray & Joan Norman Williams. He was an only child.\nHe spent the first 6 years of his life in a sheep camp, a life that he dearly loved. When the family wasn’t herding sheep, they were in Kanarraville with Brad’s great-grandma, Pheobe Davies, his beloved grandmother Silva Davies and his great aunts and uncles. He said being raised by old people made his life rich in many ways. This accounts for some of his speech and actions, he had some “old ways” about him.\nHe graduated from Cedar High in 1971 and took off looking for adventure, whether it was herding sheep or working on a big cattle ranch in Montana or landscaping, he always worked hard and liked making money.\nHe discovered he loved landscaping and started his own business; Sun & Earth Landscape and he was very successful at it, earning awards at home shows and in Landscape Architectural Digest. Natural rocks, brush, flowers and trees were his ambience and he created beautiful scenes for many homes and businesses. He found he had trouble getting the stock that he wanted, no one in Southern Utah sold trees that were big enough for his jobs, so he used his property that he inherited from his grandmother and built “Big Trees Nursery” with his bare hands, from the ground up. He also decided with his spare time he would start a wholesale tree farm, where he raised big fruit trees and other sought-after trees. He started the slogan “Grown here to live here” for the harsh growing elements of Southern Utah. Thanks to Kassie and Lonnie Pebworth, the nursery and tree farms are still thriving in Kanarraville.\nDuring the off season at the nursery and tree farm, he absolutely loved hunting, fishing and trapping. It was a true passion.\nIn 1981, Brad married Michelle Dolan and together they had a son, Dolan Bradly Williams, whom Brad loved with all his heart. They later divorced.\nJanuary 29, 2005, Brad married Darla Hulet Reber and together the two of them built a great life, working and playing together, traveling and just enjoying life together. They were thankful for each other and appreciated each other very much.\nBrad was preceded in death by his parents, his mother-in-law Revoe Hulet and step-daughter Kacee Lee Reber. He is survived by his wife Darla, Kanarraville, his son Dolan, Portland, OR., step-children Cara (Will Fureigh) West Haven, Shawn (Stacie) Reber NewCastle, Cam (Shari) Reber Cedar City, Jeri (Shad Terry) St. George, Randi (Warren Platt) Woodruff, Shae (Kristin) Reber Enoch, also 22 grandkids and 4 great grandkids, whom he thought the world of.\nA celebration of life will be held on Monday, June 7th @ 7:00 pm at the home he loved in the yard that he created.
