He was preceded in death by his two grandfathers.

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.
