AVIS DE DÉCÈS

Chad Alan Bonner

15 novembre 197616 mai 2020
Visionner la présentation hommage

Chad Alan Bonner, 43, of Austin, TX passed away May 16th, 2020.

He was born in Austin, TX on November 15th, 1976 to Robert and Shirley Bonner. A loving son, and brother to Brett Bonner; he was always up for an adventure. Exploring the fields behind their home, setting the back yard on fire, playing rough as boys do; Chad and Brett kept their parents on their toes.

Chad graduated from Bowie High School in 1994; and pursued Information Technology studies at Southwest Texas University in San Marcos, TX.

Chad was married to Joyce Blanchard on January 24, 2009 at the Salt Lick in Driftwood, TX; and kept her laughing for 11 years.

Chad had a career in Electronic Data Security for multiple companies: Renew Data Inc, and Cloud Imperium Games included.

To know Chad was to know true friendship, and his "Bonner hugs" were always in high demand. He was always ready to help anyone with their computer challenges with his usual smile and joking manner. He loved his family dearly; and his friends were considered part of the family. He enjoyed playing Dungeons and Dragons with groups of friends as well as computer games; and there was not a Marvel movie that he did not know by heart.

Chad is survived by his wife, Joyce, his father, Robert, nieces: Heather Bonner, Madeline, Lillian, and Isabelle Blanchard. He is preceded in death by his mother, Shirley; and his brother, Brett, as well as grandparents.

Funeral Services will be held at 10:30am, Friday, May 22nd at Cook-Walden/Forest Oaks.

We will be live streaming the service for those who do not feel comfortable or cannot attend on Facebook Live: https://www.facebook.com/CookWaldenForestOaks.

If you have a small trinket that you would like to leave with Chad, please feel free to bring those to the service; he would love to be surrounded by things that gave you joy.

We had just about given up hope that Joyce would ever find her true love. Then I had a dream and was told not to worry, that Joyce would soon find a fella who would have blue eyes, auburn brown hair and would be a big guy who would love her very much.. About a month later, Joyce came home for a visit and said she had met a wonderful man and was looking forward to getting to know him better. So Chad was welcomed into our family and we came to love him as much as Joyce did!
He was a sweet son in law, who was always happy to help us with our computers and endless tech questions. We often laughed at some of his funny jokes and quirky observations. And his bear hugs, they were the best! We will miss him so much, but take comfort in knowing that he is now with his mom Shirley and brother Brett.
Rest In Peace, sweet boy...

The Ballentine family met you when you were 15 years old. Chad you had it all, you could play with our toddlers and you were comfortable hanging out with the adults. You continued to impress as you became a man in friendship. We spent many late nights laughing with friends around the gaming table and going on great adventures and quests. I’ll never forget the times we went to the Texas Renaissance Fair and the memories we made. We will miss you.
Bruce, Renay and the girls

Chad will be missed although we didn’t get to see the family very often. We knew that we were there for each other. I have fond memories of Chad and our trip years earlier. We were going to the Longhorn Cavern and Chad was sitting in the back seat. He thought a mailbox was a little to close and never rode again with his Uncle Watson. We would always laugh about that trip. Then the laughs when Andrea talked about Chad’s antics . You will be missed Chad and we will love you forever in our hearts. Your Aunt Janice Jones

Words cannot describe how much Chad meant to me and many others. Chad was the most amazing and wonderful friend. No matter what was going on, he could always bring light, joy and a laugh. He recently wrote me of his excitement at being able to plan a birthday surprise for Joyce. She is the other of half his soul that made him shine even brighter and he never shied away from sharing that. I am so proud and blessed to call him my friend. Working with him each day and talking with him outside of work was a blessing. Chad and Joyce thank you for sharing your light to everyone. I miss and love you.
