Chad was a dedicated husband, father and public servant. I first met Chad when he was a young teenager and a first responder in Steinhatchee Fl. He was later a Sheriff's Explorer while I was a deputy in Taylor County. He truely loved everything having to do with Law Enforcement and EMS.
I was proud to see him grow into a man and live out his dreams. Holly, words cannot express my sorrow for you. He was a great man who will never be forgotton. CJ and Caden, your daddy is a hero. He was one of the most dedicated public servants I ever knew. He is and will remain a role model for the both of you and many others.

Why?? We need to start holding these killers accountable with THEIR lives. There should be no such thing as mitigating circumstances for a killer. My sincere heart felt condolences go to the family of this fine police officer. As for the killer, "You'll get yours ole boy. This old world goes around in a circle."

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was rough, And sometimes I've been violent Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. No words can express the devastation and loss of a husband and father, especially in the line of duty. Be proud of his commitment to community and the safety of others, it takes a very special man to dedicate his life to protecting others, at all costs. Heroes in life, not in death.
