    Ever since we met Chad we have been impressed with his kindness, patience and friendship. He is a choice son of Heavenly Father and we feel that the tribulations he experienced in this life have refined him and prepared him for greater things to come. We love Chad and mourn his passing. May the Spirit’s sweet peace rest upon his devoted wife, Emily, his parents and extended family at this difficult time.

    Chad has always been great to me. He was a stellar athlete and loved life. I enjoyed watching him play any sport. I loved seeing him help coach his nephews. May the good lord be with his wife and the rest of the Russell’s. We love your family!
