Donna Lyons Interviews Actor Anson Williams
Perhaps best know for his role of Potsie Weber on the hit series “Happy Days,” Anson is currently in the process of working with numerous organizations in several cities, to create an ongoing campaign to raise Drowsy Driving Awareness. As a father of five girls, he is concerned with the growing problem. Williams is taking a little-known fact that has saved his own life to the public that could do the same for other families across the country. “We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever; the goal is to create something that will,” has become a motto that has been embraced by Anson Williams, who is continuing the efforts of his famous cousin Dr. Henry Heimlich (Heimlich Maneuver), by saving lives.
As we approach National Drowsy Drivers Awareness week in November, we are hoping that you might have interest in an interview opportunity with Anson Williams (Potsie Weber / Happy Days) on the subject, in which he has been acknowledged as an expert from LAPD, CA Senate and Congress.
