Biography: John L. Williams was born on August 6, 1971. He was the only son, the 2nd born of 3 children at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in the Bronx, NY to Delores Williams and John Bellamy.
John grew up in the upper North-eastern section of the Bronx while attending
public school in lower Manhattan. In his early adult years, he moved to Kissimmee, Florida. While in Florida, he worked in construction with his Grandfather and mastered the trade at helping to lay down the foundation for Walt Disney Theme Parks and hotels. He later returned to New York, where the family would know him as “John-John,” the funny, fast-talking, fast food chewing, dancing person that everyone admired.
During his late twenties, John discovered love and shared a 20-year relationship with his close friend and spouse,– Kimberly Amodeo Williams. He was a devoted father that loved his children. He had the heart of unconditional compassion for young people needing guidance, family, and community. John coached and led several sports teams for the youth in his neighborhood. Not only was he admired by most as a dedicated coach, but many also looked at him as a father figure. He had a deep love for song writing and producing music. What started as an outlet developed into a purpose fulfilled. He became very instrumental in changing the lives of many by building a studio right in this living room for those that could not afford studio time. Today he has written and produced songs for several upcoming independent artists, earning his self-titled name “Spike Tunez.”
John understood the love of Jesus Christ, Scripture, and the power of prayer which helped him develop his own personal relationship with God, although he did not attend the church building regularly. His heart and soul were grounded in faith. On the beautiful, Sunday Afternoon of July 19, 2020, the Lord called John Williams home from natural causes.
