Obituary- Charles ‘Chip’ Allen Williams

Memorial services will take place Thursday, Aug. 2 for Charles “Chip” Allen Williams, who died July 26, 2001, a victim of a watercraft accident on Lake Tahoe. He was 24.

Mr. Williams was born Feb. 26, 1977, at South Lake Tahoe. He graduated from South Tahoe High School in 1977 and attended Lake Tahoe Community College. During high school he worked at Grand Central Pizza. He also had been employed at Hardrock Cafe inside Harveys Resort & Casino and most recently was a waiter and bartender at Brewery at Lake Tahoe.

His free and adventurous spirit took him to exotic places to live such as Hawaii and the Fiji Islands. He enjoyed snowboarding, sailing, hiking, playing his guitar and the company of his friends. Although the void he leaves in his family is indescribable, there is comfort in knowing he now rests in the arms of his Heavenly Father. He was loved beyond words.
