Floyd A. Williams, and his wife Cynthia Lopes-Holbert established the Floyd A. Williams Funeral Home, Inc., on February 28, 1974. This entity has been built on the spiritual foundation that "All things are possible through our faith in God and our constant prayer; however, prayer without work is dead.

Self-Reliance, self-respect, honesty, persistency and consistency are the building blocks to success. When asked about his innate ability to persevere under, what has been sometimes, insurmountable odds, Mr. Williams attributes it to a praying Grandmother, who raised him on the teachings of Marcus Garvey, - “If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. With confidence, you have won even before you have started.” 


Now approaching 44 years later, by only the Will of God, the Floyd A. Williams Funeral Home, Inc. has stood steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in its work to serve the Boston community with the highest level of dignity and professionalism. Floyd Williams has an impervious commitment to God, family and community which has enabled him to step out of his cultural house and into the cultural houses of his brothers and sisters of the many nationalities and religions in Boston and its surrounding areas, whether they be Christian or Muslim, from Africa, the Cape Verde Islands, the Caribbean or any one of the Latin American communities, as well as European.

I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD, the deeds for which he is to be praised, according to all the LORD has done for me— yes, the many good things he has done for me and with me, according to His compassion and many kindnesses.
