  1. Chad our family is so sad & our hearts are broken. You were so loved by us and we have so many great memories to keep close to our hearts. I know god took you to heaven to be with Mom & Dad. I loved it when you came to visit or spend the night with Giovanni. Plus yours and Giovanni’s bdays were a few days apart & gramma Gail & I always tried to have a plan for us to be together and spend your’s birthdays together in January. Giovanni will be 18 in January it will not be the same without you with us. You were a fun loving special young man We love you with all our hearts Chad.Rest in Piece our sweet Chadster xoxoxo

  2. It is with our deepest sympathies the loss of Chad. Chad was a wonderful student that we got to know during the lunch hour in the Senior Cafeteria at Grant Community High School. It was a pleasure to know him. He will be missed by many.

  3. Chad and Adien were both on my School Bus for years. I have memories of them playing with their hot wheels on the bus seat. I will always remember them both. I enjoyed them both.
