In 1980, Steve and Pattye Williams joined the firm and contiuned operating under the principles and values that were established: "The Funeral Home That Cares" and "Our Family Serving Yours". Steve and Pattye have been active in community affairs and have always been proud to call Newbern (Dyer County, Tennessee) their home. In 2007 Patrick Williams, Steve and Pattye's oldest son , joined the firm and the name was changed to Johnson-Williams Funeral Home. Patrick brought with him a new vision and a bright new future for the business. In 2009, Steven Williams (Steve and Pattye's youngest son) received his funeral directors license.
