Folsom Mourns the Loss of a Legend

Posted on: July 4, 2014

Jim ‘Digger’ Williams, a Folsom icon, has passed away.

Jim and his lovely wife Sharon came to Folsom in 1960, and over time became true community leaders.

Jim worked at the local funeral home, earning the nickname ‘Digger’, and was fond of telling people he’d meet, ‘I’ll be the last one to let you down’, and he never let us down.

He was a volunteer coach for Folsom High school football, baseball and wrestling.  He hosted the Folsom Concerts in the Park for many years.
