He was born on June 25th, 1971. Chad proudly enlisted in the Navy from 1991-1993, serving in Desert Storm. Chad was an avid hunter. He enjoyed rifle and bow season. He spent much of his time in his garage, doing what he loved most, working on vehicles. As a hobby, gaming competitively always made him happy.
