THE GREATEST MAN I EVER KNEW
From a very young age Chad Excelled in everything he did. In High School he was the President of the graphics department. He was very creative and inthuastic about new ideas. He graduated from High School with a Scholarship from the Governor of the state of Utah. He attended college for a short time but decided the sign business was his adventure. He was a licensed sign contractor and accomplished many tasks that others felt were impossible.
Chad was a Mason and his brothers were eternal.
Chad loved the outdoors and everything nature had to offer. Chad always talked about the many Ward family outings, the open of the deer hunt, the fishing trips, these were all still his vivid memories even though his Dad passed away sometime ago.
Chad lived for his family. He was their watchful protector in every way. Chad honored and protected his mother as no one could imagine. Chad continually made sure his sisters Natalie and Wreana had everything they needed no matter how many miles were between them.
Chad had many friends and Chad's friends were always friends for life.
The greatest day of Chad's life was the day his beautiful baby girl was born. Chad lived and breathed for Erika. His heart was always with her no matter the miles between them.
