Dave Williams, managing director of beach programs for USA Volleyball, passed away Tuesday morning at the age of 55 after a short battle with cancer.
Williams, a Hermosa Beach resident and native of Brilliant, Ohio, had family at his side when he succumbed in a Southern California hospital.
“USA Volleyball has lost a wonderful employee, a wonderful human being and a dear friend with Dave’s passing today,” stated USA Volleyball CEO Doug Beal on the association’s website. “I am having a terribly hard time digesting and accepting that Dave will not grace us with his wit, energy, passion and love of life anymore.
“Dave brought so much passion and creativity to our staff and to the sport,” Beal said.
