J Michael Williamson (J), 44 years old of Keenesburg, Colorado, passed June 9, 2018, from a car accident. J was born September 19, 1973, in Dallas, Texas, to Keith and Dianna Williamson. Growing up in Loveland, Colorado, with his three brothers Brad, Drew and Eric, J had an adventurous spirit and lived life to the fullest. J graduated from Thompson Valley High School, in Loveland, CO. He began skiing at an early age, grew up playing high school sports, enjoyed family trips and celebrating holidays as a family of six.
J was wild and fun. As a result, J and his brothers kidnapped their dad, Keith, on his birthday. Next thing Keith knew, he was parachuting out of a plane with his four sons. He went on to earn his motorcycle mechanic certification from MMI, in Phoenix, Arizona. On October 1, 2010, in Key West, Florida, J married his best friend, Lindi. Together they built a life they loved with Tess and Jax. Some of their best times together were spent on the farm, building a family business, and of course motorcross. J was mechanically gifted. He loved to tinker in his workshop. There was nothing J couldn’t build, fix, construct or conquer. J was the natural peacemaker, and had a sincere interest in anyone he met, which made him a friend to all. But what he took the most pride in was being a husband and a father.
J is survived by his wife, Lindi, daughter Tess, son Jax; daughter Chloe (Des Moines, Iowa); Parents: Keith and Dianna Williamson (Loveland, Colorado); Brothers: Brad (wife, Nell) Williamson (Breckenridge, Colorado), Drew (wife, Grace) Williamson (Ft.
