TAMPA, FLA. – Chandler Williams III, a former NFL, CFL and Arena Football League athlete, tragically passed away, from an apparent report of cardiac arrest, on January 5, 2013 while playing what he so dearly loved, “Football.”  He leaves behind to mourn a beautiful nineteen month old daughter, Tori Summer-Rose Williams, fiancé Vaniti Harrigan, parents Karen Dawson and Chandler Williams and six siblings.


Chandler’s death was sudden and tragic, which left few available resources to care for his daughter.  The Williams family has established the Chandler Williams Memorial Fund to aid with the care of his daughter Tori.  The family would greatly appreciate generous contributions, whether big or small, and thanks those that are able to contribute.  The Williams family asks people to keep their family in their prayers.


The Tampa Bay Storm along with other organizations such as the NFL Players Association have made pledges to contribute funeral costs and seed the fund for the future of his young daughter Tori.
