Everyone that knew him saw his love for God and the Lord Jesus. He brought laughter and smiles to all he met and never knew a stranger. Chad loved spending time with his family playing games, singing songs, and playing his "air" guitar. He was a devoted Cardinals fan and loved his favorite player Albert Pujols. He also had a strong love for his Roanoke Benson Rockets. His child-like heart will be missed by all, but he will be a wonderful addition to God's Heavenly choir.
