The Guest Book is expired.
Chad Jeffery Blodget, age 36 of Boulder, CO passed away March 17, 2014. Survived by his mother, Janice; father, Elweyn; and brother, Zachary Blodget. Chad graduated from Wheeler High in Valparaiso, IN and Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN. He was a Lutheran and his faith in God was an important part of his life. To many, Chad was a quiet guy who mostly kept to himself, but to those that knew and loved him, he was a loyal and loving best friend, brother, uncle, nephew, and son. Always the brave explorer, Chad's adventurous spirit had him trekking off into the woods, mountains, or desert alone, scrambling and climbing some of the highest peaks in the Rockies and Tetons, driving his motorcycle thousands of miles all over the western US and Canada, or surfing in the Pacific. Chad was a brilliant man, a true to life rocket scientist, engineer, and creative inventor. He started his career designing major components of the International Space Station and later moved on to work at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory where he helped design components of the Mars Rover. Most recently, he worked at the Sierra Nevada Corporation in Louisville, CO and lost his life in a tragic accident driving his motorcycle to work. We are grateful for every minute of every adventure and every memory of Chad. We will miss him so much. There will be a memorial service at Trinity Lutheran Church, 201 N. Washington Street, Valparaiso, IN 46383 on Saturday, April 12, 2014 at 11:00 AM. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Nature Conservancy Fund, 4245 North Fairfax Drive, Suite 100, Arlington, VA 22203-1606 or a
