An Oklahoma City radio and TV icon passed away Tuesday after complications from a heart attack. He was 85 years old.

Danny Williams spent more than 60 years in the business starting his career in Texas in 1947. He started on TV in Oklahoma City in 1950, and moved to radio in 1992.

Williams was one of the original 15 members of the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame. He retired in 2008.

"I was proud to be his daughter. He gave me an incredibly work ethic," said Shevaun Williams. "He was fabulous. Loved by everyone."

Williams is survived by his three daughters, six grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Oklahoma History Center.
