Soccer was his favorite sport, starting at age 7. He played for years, including traveling and indoor teams. He also was an avid football and wrestling star in high school. Muskie fishing was his passion. Fishing and camping trips with Victoria were very important each summer to both of them and a good time for bonding.

Grampa Chad will certainly be missed by his grandkids! Victoria will, without a doubt, miss her Dad; she says he was her "rock".
