    He was an amazing person in so many ways. I feel blessed to have known him. I’ve never met a mentally/emotionally/physically stronger person. He was the epitome of badass and one of my hero’s.

    Chad was my fraternity brother in college and my best workout partner, water skiing partner, frat party buddy and all around great guy. I feel very fortunate to have known him so well during those formitive years after high school when he was able to develop into the man he became in college and beyond. He chose a life that never had a dull moment and I was glad to see that despite all the personal tragedies he already suffered, he never gave up on doing what he loved. Rest easy brother.

Sorry, comment time is over.
