  11. Chad, we have been through a lot together over the past 20 something years. I’m going to miss laughing with you, talking to you and I’ll probably even miss fighting with you. I’m going to miss being able to call you when Trevor, Tyler and Trisha are driving me crazy and I need you do do something about your kids. There is so much of you in the kids I know you will live on in their hearts. You will be missed.

    I am so sorry for your loss Kim. I spoke to Chad on the phone and thought he was so sweet and kind. I know it has to be so hard without him right now but I know he is in a happy place And will all get to see him again. I love you. Stay strong

  13. I’ve been in a daze ever since I found out. This man impacted mine and my family’s lives in so many ways. He taught me wonderful, wonderful things about my passion for Art. And was a great friend to all of us. A great, great friend to my brother-in-law and sister. But, most of all.. I feel like I can’t thank him enough, for what he did, for us that day, on August 29, 2012, when I was only 18 years old. That day we lost our house, but HE made sure our lives were saved.. And that meant everything to me. Such an angel.

  14. So sorry for your loss. May God comfort you all and fill you with peace. I have my one of a kind tattoo to remind me of Chad. God bless you all.

  15. You were an amazing tattoo artist and an even more amazing big brother to me, I’m gonna miss you, my friend. I’ll carry your art on my body until my dying days. I apologize, I won’t be able to make it to the funeral, but know that you’ll always live in a special place in my heart reserved for the family I’ve lost. Rest easy, my friend. Until Valhalla.

  16. My deepest condolences to the family. May God’s future promises at John 5:28,29 of an earthly resurrection and Revelation 21:3,4 of no more suffering or death bring you comfort. Until that time comes, God assures us at Psalm 34:18 that he “is close to the brokenhearted” and “saves those who are crushed in spirit.” So he understands your pain and grief and is eager to help you by giving you the strength you need to cope during this most difficult time. (Philippians 4:13)

      Thank you uncle Mike. Chad was so mad at me because I didn’t tell him when you were leaving. He wanted to see you. He was the best son and so loving. I could not have ask for more. He was good to me. I will miss him so much. I cannot understand some things maybe some day I will. Love you

  18. My sincerest condolences to the family and close friends for this unfortunate loss!
    May God give you comfort in knowing he’s no longer in pain and is in Jesus’ arms, smiling down on you all.

    I will miss my brother Chad who is now with the Lord. May God bless and comfort the rest of the family in this time of need. I will always keep the good memories we had as friends, bandmates, and as brothers. I know sometimes we might of had our differences but at the end of the day, it was all good. I truly am thankful for knowing you for the time you were here on Earth but it was time for God to call you home. Peace be with the family and friends and brothers you left behind until that day when God will also call us home one day….Blessings

  21. Words escape me…To Chad’s Family and Children, my deepest condolences – May God comfort you during these trying times. Chad was a brother to me, and I was proud to have called him that. I was fortunate enough to have shared a drive and a passion and love of music with Chad enough to get to eventually share a stage with him. Many late nights strumming and singing and writing music, lots of tacos. Lot of emotions, too. We had the privilege of being rockstars with the guy. Chad was and will forever be a monumental part of my life, and I am truly thankful for Chad! We love you, Carnage.

  22. Prayers to the Osborne family at this time I at the loss of Chad and his sweet smile. Love Sheila
