ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A longtime Sunbelt Ag Expo leader is about to pass the torch to his son. Darrell Williams has been the Expo farm manager since 1980, and he planned on staying until he turned 65.

But in April Williams was diagnosed with brain cancer. His son Michael, who grew up in the fields following his dad, is set to take over at the end of the year.

He hopes to bring fresh perspective to the Expo while tackling issues that concern farmers.

"In this day and time, cost is a great factor. It is a very large factor and that is some of the things that I would like to implement. Some of the things that I would like to explore and develop through time is what factors can be applied to cut costs and get the best advantage out of it," said Associate Expo Farm Manager, Michael Williams.

Michael Williams will manage 600 acres of research farmland.
