‘Chic’ Williams dies

Charles “Chic” Williams, who ran The Community Intervention Program for Geneva and Kane County, died Monday, Geneva School District 304 board President Mark Grosso announced at the school board meeting.

Williams ran the community intervention program, which was developed in 2001, collaborating with other community agencies to assist at-risk youths and their families.

He was known for running the Parent to Parent 2000 programs to aid parents in how to keep their children off drugs. An English teacher first, Williams became a dean of students at the high school in 1979. In the early 1990s, Williams became a certified alcohol/drug counselor, which blossomed into a lifelong passion for him.

After he retired in 2001, Williams founded Williams Intervention Consulting and continued working as the community intervention specialist in a basement office at the district’s administration building on Fourth Street, along with his wife, Linda Williams, also a certified drug and alcohol counselor.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
