As a U.S. district judge, Glen M. Williams helped get the federal courthouse in Big Stone Gap reopened in 1978. Now, the courthouse will be the setting for a ceremony next week in memory of Judge Williams who died Nov. 4 at age 92.
Judge Williams retired in 2010 after 47 years with the federal court system. A public memorial ceremony will be held Monday, May 13, beginning at 2:30 at the Big Stone Gap courthouse.
The public is invited, according to a news release from the U.S. District Court for the Western District.
