I spent many long nights in his garage helpinng him work on our vehicles. He will always be in our hearts. We all miss you chad. My deepest condolences go to his wife and family i am sorry this happened.

    My condolences to his wife cindy and the family. Chad lit up a room with his never ending talking or asking if i wanted a popsicle his wife bout for him. Cindy and Chad were end game it wasnt supposed to turn out like this. He would want u to think on this why is donald the duck the only duck that doesnt were pants  or why does goofy walks like a human but pluto walks like an actual dog.
