No cause of death was given, but his mother, Marlyse Williams, confirmed his passing to The Tri-City News, saying the family is “absolutely devastated.” She added that it was even harder because she can't mourn with family due to COVID-19 self-isolation guidelines.
“I am not able to hug my parents, who lost their only grandchild,” Williams said.
Grant Gustin, who plays the older Barry Allen on “The Flash,” remembered Logan on Instagram.
“Just hearing the devastating news that Logan Williams has passed away suddenly,” he wrote. “I was so impressed by not only Logan's talent but his professionalism on set. My thoughts and prayers will be with him and his family during what is I'm sure an unimaginably difficult time for them. Please keep Logan and his family in your thoughts and prayers during what has been a strange and trying time for us all. Sending love to everyone.”
