Text size

Chad Christopher Williams was born in Neosho, Mo., July 17, 1971, and passed away June 21, 2017 after a work related accident.
He is survived by his wife, Beth Northcott Williams, his four children, Dylan, Mady, Ally, Katy, of Thompson's Station, Tenn.; and his parents, Bill and Vickie Williams, of Seneca, Mo. He is also survived by his aunts, uncles and many cousins and his teammates from Seneca and Memphis, Tenn.; and his many, many friends.
Chad was known for his sarcastic dry sense of humor. He had many one liners. Chad was known for friending new people to his Seneca High School. He wanted them to be welcome. He had such a big loving heart. Chad's son, Dylan, has his personality and good heartedness. Chad was the perfect example of Seneca's tradition, pride and class.
Chad was an avid sports fan and favored the St. Louis Cardinals, the Nashville Predators and the Green Bay Packers, as well as his Seneca football Indians and his University of Memphis football Tigers. He excelled in several sports at Seneca High School. He earned honors of all conference, all district and all state in football. He also played on the state championship team. He still holds the Seneca High School record in the shot put and the discus.
He continued his football career at Memphis State University (the University of Memphis). He was the snapper for the #1 kicking team in the nation. He was also inducted into the college football hall of fame. He graduated with honors, receiving both his BS and MBA degrees. He met his wife, Beth, while both were in graduate school.
Chad had a passion for flying and was a licensed commercial pilot. Chad attended flight school in Phoenix, Ariz. Chad professed his faith in Christ and was baptized at Bellevue Baptist Church, in Memphis. He was ordained as a deacon by Clearview Baptist Church, in Franklin, Tenn. The pride and joy of his life were his four children.
The memorial service for Chad was held at Thompson's Station Baptist Church, in the gymnasium, Saturday, June 24, at 3 p.m., visitation was from 12 until 3 p.m. There will be a memorial service for Chad at a later date in Seneca.Chad Christopher Williams was born in Neosho, Mo., July 17, 1971, and passed away June 21, 2017 after a work related accident.
