"Laurie Rohan Williams" was a West Indian cricket team/West Indian cricketer. Williams was just 33 years old when he died, a car he was driving crashed into an oncoming bus.

He made his first-class debut in February 1990 against England, opening the bowling for Jamaica. He bowled medium pacers, concentrating more on seam and swing as oppose to being fast.

Also handy with the bat, he made three first-class hundreds including a career best 135 for Jamaica against the Windwards Islands. That innings helped him to become the second-highest runmaker in the 1999–2000 Busta Cup.

Williams played 15 One Day Internationals for West Indies, the large bulk of them coming in

the 2000–01 Carlton Series in Australia. His best ODI bowling performance was perhaps his 3 for 16 against New Zealand in his just his second match.

At the time of his death he had 58 first class matches to his name for West Indies A and Jamaica. He scored 2,002 runs at 24.71 and took 170 wickets at 23.17. His best first-class bowling figures were 6 for 26, made in 1996–97.
