I’m saddened by hearing of Chad’s passing.

I met Chad through work.

He was a character.
He was a fun guy who I had many good laughs with.

Chad loved his family, speaking of them all the time. He really enjoyed the family trips they took yearly. Each time we would meet up he would be telling me of his last trip or the plans for the next trip. He made me laugh telling me about his times on these trips and all the good times he had.

Chad was my friend and I will miss him. However, I have a lot of good memories of our times together and for that I’m thankful.

My thought and prayers go out to his family and friends.

I worked with Chad at inPharmative for a few years. We often went to lunch and I got to know him mostly over the time we spent outside the office.
I know how much he enjoyed spending time with his family and spending vacations with them.
My condolences to his family at this difficult time
