On Nov. 4, 2013, Larry Williams joined the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs’ staff as a physical-plant maintenance mechanic working with the Preservation-Maintenance Team, a group of trades professionals who maintain, repair and preserve the nearly 90 structures administered by the division.
An all-around tradesman and troubleshooter, Williams served a three-year apprenticeship in carpentry early in his career and has worked for Christiana Construction, the Pennsylvania Shipyard and a 20-year stint at the Sunoco oil refinery in Marcus Hook, Pa. A native of north Wilmington and graduate of Mount Pleasant High School, Williams comes from a long line of carpenters and craftspeople. He and his wife now live in a Newark, Del. house that he planned and designed and for which he completed the lion’s share of construction.
