MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - The Sunbelt Ag Expo fields were dedicated to the former Expo field manager who died of cancer in February.

Darrell Williams worked for the Expo for nearly 30 years.

He was diagnosed with cancer a year ago and died in February.

His family and co-workers came together Tuesday to dedicate the fields as the Darrell Williams Research Farm.

His son, Michael Williams, will take over as manager of the farm.

He could hardly hold back tears during the dedication.

"It's a big honor for this to be dedicated because I get to see it every day," he said.

A new sign was unveiled at the entrance to the farm plots Tuesday to honor Darrell Williams.

Co-workers say he loved his work and always put his heart and soul into research at the Expo.
