Williams’ Mother Has Had to Put His Funeral on Hold

Michelle Gauvin, Logan Williams’ manager, reported that the 16-year-old had died on Thursday, April 2. Gauvin didn’t reveal the cause of death, but did say that the teen’s death comes as a “shock.”

Williams is survived by his parents, grandparents, and extended family. He was an only child.

Speaking to the media, Marlyse Williams said that the social distancing rules in effect mean that she can’t rely on her family’s support system to grieve. They can only communicate on electronic media, but Marlyse says it isn’t the same.

“I’ve had such wonderful messages on Facebook, but it’s not the same as getting to hug your friends and family because we’re all not supposed to,” she said. “We’re all in self-quarantine and — I just have no words.”
