Panthers Mourn Passing of Amateur Scout Luke Williams
SUNRISE, Fla. – The Florida Panthers organization is saddened to announce the passing of amateur scout Luke Williams. Williams, who served as a Panthers scout for the last eight seasons, was involved in a fatal car accident late last night. He is survived by his wife Lucy and three children Sandy, Jeff and John.
 
“Luke was a true professional and an exceptional human being,” said Florida Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon. “The thoughts and prayers of the entire Panthers organization and our fans are with his family during this difficult time.”

Williams also worked in the National Hockey League for the NY Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning. In addition, he served as the head scout for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds (OHL), while also working for Belleville (OHL) and London (OHL).

“Luke was the senior member of the scouting fraternity,” said Panthers Director of Scouting Scott Luce. “He was well liked and respected by all involved with our game.  He was a mentor and good friend to our entire staff and we will miss him greatly.”
 
Services Williams will be held at the John T. Donohue Funeral Home Friday and Saturday.  In lieu of flowers, a donation in Luke’s name can be made to the Oakridge Aeros Hockey Association or the London Minor Hockey Association.
 
Friday, March 18th: Visitation from 2-4 p.m. and from 7-9 p.m.
