It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of longtime member and RRC Past President Gary Williams, CRS. He passed away peacefully in his sleep at home last night. 

Williams started his real estate career in 1986 in in Edina, Minnesota, where it flourished. As his business grew, he continually sought better education to improve his skills as a REALTOR®, and in 1997 he became a CRS. Leadership positions within the Council started calling from there, and he always answered. Starting from his presidency of the Minnesota chapter, Williams became a regional vice president, joined the national board and then became the 2018 national president. Williams was also named CRS of the Year in 2007 and won the Medallion Award in 2013. 

He will be greatly missed and our thoughts go out to his family during this time.
