Chandler Reid Willingham, age 26 of Grovetown, entered peacefully into rest Wednesday, November 9th, 2022.
Today, our hearts are broken as we mourn the loss of our beloved Chandler. Chandler was a devoted father, son, and brother who will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was witty and charming and could light up a room. Not too many people got to know the true Chandler, though his infectious smile could win over any heart. People who were fortunate enough to get to know the real Chandler knew that he had a very kind and loving heart, full of compassion and empathy. He was incredibly intelligent. Chandler was blessed with a goofy and silly sense of humor that could make anyone belly laugh. Chandler always embraced with warm hugs and was sensitive to the needs of others. Above all, he loved his family, and he was fiercely protective of them.
His pride and joy was his precious daughter, Ava. Even before her arrival he was ecstatic about being her Daddy. He loved her with all his being and was so very proud of her. She was the source of much of his happiness and the best parts of Chandler will live on in her.
Those left to cherish his memory include his beloved daughter: Ava Elisabeth Willingham; mother: Kim Reid Willingham; sister: Savannah Ann Seabolt; brother-in-law: Andrew Durham Seabolt; father: James Alexander Willingham; half-brother: Patrick Willingham; uncles; Jess Reid and Frank Hester; and aunts: Casey Reid, Jan Reid, Marsha Willingham, and Tara Hester and countless other loved ones.
In Chandler's memory and in lieu of flowers, we would love donations to be made to The Hale House, a place where Chandler bloomed. The significance of their work and their mission is a necessary component for our community.
