Dalis Williams, long time resident of the Salem District, passed away with family by his side at the Portage District General Hospital on February 10, 2019 at the age of 77.

Dalis was the oldest son of the late Jim and Doreen Williams.

Dalis lived his entire life on the home farm. Early on he worked for neighbour, Tommy Charlton and that is when he began farming. Later he started working full time at Connery Riverdale Farms while continuing to farm with his father.
