  • Chads Family: Sorry to learn of Chad’s passing. He was a strong supporter of mine during the 1960s while I was a Richland City councilman. We also had some things in common. He was 6 months older than I and both of us Okies. Rest is peace, Chad!

    I only knew of your Dad through my sister’s family Dorothy Vowels and Teresa Vowels.

    From what I saw and heard your Dad was good to them and cared about them up and until the end! For that I’m appreciative!!
