Brent Williams’ 63rd birthday became exceptionally special after receiving the Service Above Self Award from the Rotary Club of Gainesville. On Tuesday, Williams was recognized at a luncheon for his work spanning decades throughout the country in areas ranging from hurricane relief to youth leadership.

In 2013, Williams was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, but his daughter said, “He hasn’t let it slow down his passion.”

Williams had a career at WUFT News for 34 years.
