Chandler A. Innarelli, 22, of Manchester, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at Elliot Hospital.

Born in Manchester, he is the son of Frederick Scheffer and Amy Innarelli-Houle.

Chandler was a cherished son, brother, father, grandson, and friend to many. Chandler's family was paramount in his life, with an especially close bond with his older sister, Ava-Loren, while countless others considering him a brother by choice and love. Chandler was fun-loving, had a zest for life and a genuine love for kids. He had patience, encouraged their curiosity, and had an ever-watchful eye, always looking after the ones he loved. Chandler could not wait for the day would be a dad, and on November 2, 2019 his wish came true with the birth of his son. An avid sports fan, Chandler enjoyed watching and playing many sports, especially basketball. From early on, he established a love of sneakers and became a "sneakerhead". He will best be remembered for his loyalty, love of family and friends, and his huge beautiful, devilish smile.

Chandler is survived by his mother, Amy Innarelli-Houle and husband Michael of Manchester; father, Frederick Scheffer of Canterbury; sister, Ava-Loren Innarelli of Manchester; girlfriend Keona Alston and son, Jahmel Innarelli of Manchester; maternal grandparents, Kathy Kelley and husband Ly, and David Innarelli; God Parents, Dan and Maggie Palys; many cousins; aunts, uncles, and extended family and friends. He was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Raymond and Nation Scheffer.

I know we didn't grow up close but that still doesn't change the pain that we feel from loosing a family member. This is such a hard thing to swallow looking you. May you be a peace and continue on to your other journey in another life. You will always be loved but never ever forgotten. Especially that smile of yours! Rest easy and fly with the angels and be the guardian Angel in your child's life as he continues to grow into a young man. You will be missed my many Chandler.

I am sorry to hear of Chandler's passing, thinking of his friends and family during this time. And sending healing thoughts. I was Chandler's preschool teacher at Kinder Care and everyday I looked forward to his energy, brilliant smile, and affection. As a preschooler he went full in at everything he did, which could be challenging. I missed him as he moved on but some kids touch your heart forever. I have thought of him often and told many stories of that young boy whom I looked forward to seeing everyday.
