Van Clair Williams (born c. 1943; died March 10, 2015 in Birmingham) was a U.S. Pipe supervisor.

As a child, Williams walked from the Southtown Court housing project to Daniel Payne School every day. He enlisted in the army and served as a paratrooper before returning to Birmingham to work in the cast-iron pipe industry. He was promoted to supervisor at U.S. Pipe before he retired.

Williams was murdered in March 2015 in the driveway of his house on Parkview Drive.
