Chico High School and the Chico Community Mourns the Sudden and Unexpected Loss of Former Principal Roger Williams


The Chico community was shocked to hear of the untimely death of Former Principal and President of the Chico High School Foundation, Roger Williams.

Roger was a tireless supporter of Chico High School. Following a 22 year tenure in the administration at our alma mater, Roger, in retirement, committed himself to raising endowments to support teachers and students at and graduating from Chico High School. He was a pillar of our community, who selflessly devoted himself to the betterment of our children— to see that they had the best education and the greatest opportunities available. 

He will be sorely missed in Chico— and fondly remembered by family, friends, and the thousands of people who had the pleasure of meeting him in this life.

Upon the instruction of his family, contributions in memory of Roger Williams may be sent to:

Roger Williams Memorial Fund
c/o North Valley Community Foundation
P.O. Box 6581
Chico, CA 95927

We will miss him, dearly.
