Chad was one of the best teammates I've ever played with. We played on the same team for some years. He was even keeled in times of stress and crucial moments, he was skilled, he was honest and hussled hard. He played clean and he played well. He came out after the games and sometimes had a funny angle on things at the bar/restaurant. He was a good man and his passing shocks me... I learned a few things from Chad even though at first I didn't think I would. Sometimes people teach you something with their consistency... Chad was consistently good and decent. His passing pains me as he was a good fellow struck down early.

To his family I want to say Chad was a good man, and he's not forgotten, even though we weren't deep friends we were teammates for a long time and I saw him meet adversity with great maturity and perseverance. He never lashed out, he worked hard, he made the games, he just kept it real.... a Good Man. God Bless him and I wish the bereaved.. well, Chad was Champion at Heart and I'm saddened by his early departure from this world.

Chad was such an amazing friend through high school. So many fond memories of playing D&D and having sleepovers at his place while his cat kept jumping on us while we tried to sleep. If I recall correctly he had this tiny mop of a dog and I want to say her name was Mandy? I remember working at McDs with him and so many fun adventures around town. He was a really good friend and he will be missed. I'm sorry I lost touch over the years but my sincerest condolences to his family.

Chad grew up near our home on Yates Avenue in Cornwall. He was a dedicated student, loved to play ball hockey and all manner of games.

He would pick me up for the walk to school by walking in the backdoor of our house and promptly plunking himself in front of the TV.

I wish I would have had more time with him in his adult years. Rest in peace Chad - you were a great friend.
