You may not remember me, but I was stationed at JFSC with Chad for 2 years 17-19. He was such a good friend and fellow PO1 with me. He was awesome to play sports with, and be around. I can tell he loved you, his family so deeply. I enjoyed being around him so much.

I was so saddened to hear this news.
My thoughts, prayers, and deepest condolence go to you. May God comfort you.

Best Wishes,
Johnny Lunsford

We met Chad when visiting our daughter,his neighbor. Probably only saw him 10 times. What an impression he made. The most larger than life person I’ve ever known
