Clinton, aka "CJ", was Auburn born and raised. He graduated from Del Oro High School in 2006 where he participated in the football and wrestling programs as well as played his beloved game of rugby.

Clinton entered the U.S. Navy in the summer of 2009. He was very excited and proud of this and was extremely honored to be of service to his country.

He was first stationed aboard the USS Nassau, a Tarawa class amphibious assault ship. He was later assigned to the USS Carl Vinson, a Nimitz class supercarrier.

Clinton served as a Cryogenic Engineer and was most recently chosen to be a Facilities Liaison coordinating the numerous activities within his department.

His dedication, professionalism, integrity and natural leadership skills were highly regarded by his superiors, peers and subordinates throughout his naval service.

Clinton had the unique ability to "brighten" any space he entered. When you met him, you instantly realized that this was a man who truly loved life, his family, his friends, and would give of himself, unselfishly, whenever and wherever he could.

All those who had the opportunity to interact with Clinton were sincerely graced to have done so. He epitomized kinship, friendship, honesty, integrity and, above all, a true love and zest for life and people.

He is survived by his mother, Tina Williams-Burke; his father, Timothy Williams; their spouses Diane Williams, and Michael Burke; siblings Andrea Esp, Adrienne Clark; and many loving grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and friends.

Services will be on Thursday, October 11, 2012, at 10 a.m. at St. Teresa's Catholic Church, on Atwood Road in Auburn, CA followed by a ceremony at the Newcastle Cemetery on Taylor Road, in Newcastle, CA.

The families would then be honored if you could join them in a tribute and Celebration of Life at the Williams home.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Auburn Community Cancer Endowment Fund (ACCEF) located at 11899 Edgewood Road, Suite X, Auburn, CA 95603.
