Chad A. Greenenwald
Chad Anthony Greenenwald, age 17, a resident of Fox Lake passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 4th, 2023. Chad was a senior at Grant High School. Chad was an amazing young man whose heart was bigger than life and he would give anyone the shirt off his back if they asked. Family was everything to Chad, he loved and respected his Nana and Gramma. He enjoyed spending as much time as possible with family, whether on a night watching movies, family vacations, or celebrating a family milestone. He loved gaming, fishing, and exploring the mountains in Tennessee. Chad was a peace maker, always trying to diffuse any situation and with laughter and jokes. He was very soft spoken, yet his beautiful smile would light up a room and brighten anyone’s mood. Chad touched many lives in his short number of years, anyone who spent even the smallest amount of time with him came to appreciate his gentle and loving nature.
