Chad Stuart
December 10, 1941 - December 20, 2020
Hailey, Idaho - David Stuart Chadwick born in Windermere, England, December 10, 1941 passed away on December 20, 2020 from complications of pneumonia (non covid related) in his home in Hailey, ID.
David, known as Chad Stuart, became well known in the early 1960's as part of the famous British duo Chad and Jeremy. He is known for writing and recording many songs such as "Yesterday's Gone", "Summer Song", and "Willow Weep For Me". Chad also performed in many television shows such as Johnny Carson, Batman, Patty Duke and Dick Van Dyke. He was one of the vultures in the original Disney Jungle Book. Chad and Jeremy continued touring until their final show in 2016. He not only enjoyed performing but especially delighted in connecting with his fans. Beyond touring, Chad was passionate about giving back to his community. He donated to Habitat for Humanity, The Humane Society, Horse Rescue and many other benefits.
Chad was a father, a husband, a brother, a grandfather, a friend, a mentor, a teacher and an inspiration to many. The world has lost a legend, but his voice will continue to touch our lives through his music. Chad's talent was endless and unparalleled. His melodies melodic, words tender and songs hard not to sing along with. Chad not only taught but deeply touched many people in this community making long lasting relationships. As Chad's daughter Beth said, "He is part of the design of so many humans and was the sail that caught the wind for us all to help us navigate." Chad was loved by many including his adoring wife, Julia Shelly, his children, Beth Stuart, Beau Stuart, Andrew Stuart and Patrick Stuart, and his step children, Devin Kelly, Hallie Kelly, Cassi Shelly, Owen Shelly and Tyler Shelly. Truth is, though, the world was his family.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Hospice and Palliative Care of the Wood River Valley. www.hpcwrv.org

Chad and Jeremy were two British performers who sang beautiful, wistful songs much to my liking. The Summer Song and Yesterday’s Gone were two of my favorites. They were part of the “British Invasion” that defined my generation. Every so often I’ll hear one of their songs on the radio and I’m transported back to my youth. May you Rest In Peace Chad and thanks for the great music that I miss

My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Chad Stuart. Chad and Jeremy were my absolute favorites of the British Invasion. As a young teen I worked hard at my home chores to save enough allowance money to buy their latest record or album. Their music was, and still is, so soothing to my soul! At the age of 66, they are still at the top of my playlists! I feel very sad to learn of Chad’s passing and will keep all his loved ones and dear friends in my prayers at this time of their great loss. ❤ Deepest sympathies, Julia Manly

I became a big Fan of “Chad & Jeremy” after I heard “Willow Weep For Me” on an “Oldies Radio Station” in my Hometown. I hadn’t ever heard them before. After hearing more of their Hits on the radio, Chad & Jeremy quickly became my Favorite Singing Duo. I enjoyed them so much I went out and bought a Cassette of their Greatest Hits. Since then I’ve replaced the Cassette with two CD’s of their Hits. I am saddened to hear about Chad’s death. MAY HE REST IN PEACE WITH THE LORD.

He and Jeremy made extraordinary music. (Everything is a matter of individual taste, but my favorite is 'The Truth Often Hurts the Heart." Like hearing this news.) Those of us fortunate enough to have enjoyed it, and who will continue to enjoy it, can never be sufficiently grateful.

In High School my friend and I imitated all C and J songs. We bought stools, had our acoustic guitars, and couldn’t wait for the next album. “ It was a very good year” was our favorite. Many pleasurable times spent because of their talent. I will miss you. My “Chad” passed recently. Condolences to friends and family.
