MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) – May the fourth be with you! On Star Wars day, a worker at St. Francis Hospital-Bartlett received a lot of attention. Meet Darth Vader Williamson.
Williamson is a surgical technician who could have been taken by the dark side. Instead, he chose a life of helping people.
Believe it or not, this Darth Vader isn’t a big Star Wars fan. He says his parents are.
Williamson says his passion is helping others. “The name is famous within itself. I’m just a carrier of the name. But you know people want to associate a face with it other than the character Darth Vader so that’s me.”
Darth Vader Williamson also works with the hospital’s robots and technology, including a new multi-dimensional imaging system called the O-Arm, the first of its kind in the Memphis area.
