From his tribute wall:
“I use to work with Chad at Cherry Point. He was our designated trainer for our CPR and first aid class. He was a natural and enjoyed sharing his experiences as a rescue worker and Marine. He loved to do whatever he could for the chance to help somebody. I’m sure the knowledge he taught to hundreds of people will be paid forward for many, many years to come and will make a difference! Always had a smile on his face. So sorry to the family and friends.”
“Certainly, as anyone that knew Chad, we are all deeply saddened by the loss of such a wonderful friend, co-worker and family member. Chad was always a highlight of our day at the Mid-Atlantic Electronic Warfare Range. Generally, Chad was mild mannered. Every once in a while we experienced that fire and Marine influence. Chad never did anyone wrong.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all that knew and loved Chad.
Semper Fi Chad.”
