To spend time with an individual for just a few short weeks in a year's time, and for that individual to leave such a powerful impact upon others that he has met, will always be cherished in my heart. Rest in peace my friend we shall see each other soon

I always wanted a brother growing up and Chad did a great job filling that role once our parents got married. He was always there when I needed advice and always put my girls first.

Football season was also a very fond memory I can remember Super Bowl Sunday parties at his and Tammy's house debating who was better his Cheeseheads or my Cowboys. And basketball season was always fun too and I loved having little facebook battles about who was better the Cards or Cats.

Chad also taught me how to play an online dice game and I remember we would play late at night either before he went to work or right after. He always put his nieces first and Callie always loved going to Uncle Chad's and playing with his cat poor Bella threw the remote at him and forever traumatized poor Jasper though.

Chad was a wonderful family man and always put others first and will forever hold a special place in everyone's hearts. You will be missed so much always in our thoughts until we see you again. Thank you for always being the brother I always wanted and accepting me into the family. I love you big brother R.I.P. until we see each other again.

When I think of Chad I think of Tammy. When I think of Chad I think of his Godchildren. His smile would light up a room, his enthusiasm for his green packers, oh how he loved the holidays especially when it included taking the kids to every trunker or treat possible. I will not be able to watch a Green Bay packer game without thinking of cheesehead, the kids without wondering what they are thinking about their Uncle Chad whom loved them with every being in his body. When I look at Tammy my heart will always see Chad because it’s Tammy and Chad or Chad and Tammy. Two hearts made as one. God knew exactly what he was doing with the two of them. I will miss this gentle short guy. My heart goes out to you Tammy. I love you girl and I will always be praying for you me friend.

Chad was a special spirit. I worked with Chad and can honestly say that I have never met a more generous, hardworking and respectful gentleman. Chad will be a huge loss for all that knew him. My prayers go out to his family and I pray that they find peace and healing. I want his family to know that he mattered and positively impacted a lot of people. We are all better people for having known him. Rest in Peace my dear friend. You are already missed.

Friday nights we would go out to my daughter's apartment and visit the kids and Chad and Tammy would come also, we would all set around and eat and sometimes watch a movie or just talk, one time my brother and Cameron got into a gun fight (nerf guns) and was shooting wild, and I think me and Chad got hit more than anybody, he would get up and chase Cameron and we would just laugh, we had a lot of fond memories like that which I will cherish always. And we would go out black friday shopping and we always had a blast, me and Aunt Debbie would laugh at Chad, Tammy and Tiffany until we were almost in tears, we were so blessed to have such a lovable sole in our lives.
