Chadd was raised as a child in the Tabernacle Baptist Church where he got his knowledge of the Lord from his Sunday School teachers.

Chadd was a loyal lover of family, friends and food! if there was a cookout – he was there and always wanted a variety and plenty of foods, he enjoyed watching the cooking channel and would share food ideas to us. He was an ultimate Dallas Cowboy fan and a hater of the Pittsburgh Steelers which kept a rival argument with us all on game day; you could even find him at Michael’s or Long Horn talking sports and trash. He always had to be right, have the last word, and do him! he truly lived his life on his terms.
