Dear 100-square checker enthusiasts,

Herbert "Cookey" Burrell called me last night from New Orleans to inform me of the death of Warren Williams, long-time president of the New Orleans Checker Club and the American International Checkers Society (AICS). Mr. Williams lived to be 101 years old. He left New Orleans after the 2005 flood and went to live with a niece in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Williams retired from active play 20 years ago or more, but still traveled to AICS tournaments in distant states such as Delaware, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania, in his 90's, in the company of Herbert and his brother Joe Burrell.

May this remarkable man rest in peace.
A Checker Friend, JR Smith
