Chase Behner Billings

October 15, 1983June 30, 2019

Fremont- Chase Behner Billings, age 35, resident of Clear Lake IN, died on June 30th, 2019. Chase was born on October 15th, 1983 in Coldwater MI to Tom and Dee Billings also of Clear Lake. He was a 2002 graduate of Fremont High School. More than anything, Chase enjoyed spending time on the lake with his friends and family. Growing up on Clear Lake, he began kneeboarding at age 4, quickly moving to skiing and wakeboarding. As a teen working at the Clear Lake Marina, he made many “laker” friends that would tow him for hours, giving everyone a show of wake clearing jumps, flips and raleys. He competed in regional competitions in the sport and was a highlight in the annual ski show, he was truly a sight to see. He was an avid car enthusiast with a knack for knowing makes, models, years and values of the most obscure models. Starting at a very young age, Chase became interested in heavy-equipment machinery and excavating. After high school he became a member of the National Laborers Union, where he worked for 12 years on various road and construction projects, including working on the Notre Dame football stadium as a labor foreman. In 2015, he became an operator, finally getting to drive and operate the equipment he dreamed of as a young boy. He was most recently employed at Nucor Building Systems as a coil crane operator. He is survived by his parents, two sisters, Kelsey Frasier of Indianapolis and Alicia (Ben) Carver of Norfolk, VA, two nephews Lennon and Leo as well as a niece Amelia. Preceded in death by his maternal grandparents Don and Orabelle Densel from Clear Lake, and paternal grandparents Elroy Billings of Elgin, IL and Marilyn Billings of Fort Wayne, IN. A Celebration of Life service will be held at the Fremont American Legion on Saturday July 6th from 2-5 p.m. Memorials are requested to the Fremont American Legion.

Our deepest condolences are with the Billings families. Chase brought a lot of laughs as a Youth in our group at Clear Lake Lutheran Church. He was always looking out for us girls and made sure we were okay.

Only meant Chase once when he was out riding around on his golfcart he had it over loaded with weekenders. I remember him saying just lending them a ride . He left and come back alone as we sat around the fire he told us a little bout himself and said I'm just here to meet new friends. Might of only meet him once but he made a great impression on us all . He will be missed at the campground.
