Chad is going to greatly missed by his friends here at Lite Loads. You go through life and every so often you get to meet someone like Chad. He was so interesting to talk with on so many different subjects, just an interesting person with so much knowledge. He was an excellent worker who had things organized and knew his stuff. He will be greatly missed here. We also know we will see him again and his faith and belief in Jesus Christ is a comfort. RIP and enjoy Christmas in Heaven. Well see you when we get there too!!

Chad will forever hold a special place in my heart! I always looked forward to our calls, chats or texts. And was looking forward to meeting up and catching up with him since I just got back home to Michigan. He was very protective like a big brother to me but also a very special friend. Need a smile, pick me up, health info, help with anything....Chad was always there. RIP Chad. Love you and will miss you always. Sending prayers to the family as well
