On the morning of Saturday, July 21st, 2018, Chad Merrill was shot and taken from us way too soon.

He was a new father to his adorable son Layton, a great son,brother,friend and person to all of those around him. He knew how to make anyone smile on a moments notice. 

Our family is still in a state of shock and are thankful to everyone that is reaching out. 

We are starting this as a Funeral fund and any leftovers will go towards helping his son Layton. If you can help to donate in any way, we would greatly appreciate it.

A message from Richard Merrill: On behalf of my family, I would like to thank everyone who has donated no matter how big or small. It is truly amazing that my brothers story has touched so many of you enough to help his son out like this. My brother was a hero and an amazing father. I wish so bad he were still with us so he could continue being the amazing man he was. We were and still are so proud of him. I have had so many people message me and tell me how amazing he was and is for what he did. I even had one guy who said he was racist tell me my brothers story has changed the way he views people now and is going to stop the hatred. Even threw his death he still changing people's hearts in this world. We all loved him so much and hope his story never goes away and continues to spread love throughout this world. Thank you again to everyone who has donated, we appreciate you all. Spread love not hate, cherish the ones close to you.
