Chad ¨Ẃild¨ Myhre

My name is Jan, and I am the sister of Chadś love of his life, Meg. Chad recently passed away after sustaining a fatal, traumatic brain injury.  Your support will help Meg and Chadś son Dalton, with accruing bills. 

Chad was a huge part of the community, whether he was teaching kids how to hunt and fish, or by simply being a role model for them. His generosity and compassion for others showed every day. Chad and Meg, while struggling to keep their business open during Covid,  provided free meals to police officers, first responders, and front-line healthcare workers.  

Dalton, who just recently graduated from junior college lives above their business. Daltonś residency may be impacted due to the uncertainty of the business'reopening. Chad has always said Dalton was "the best thing I ever did in my life."

Chad has been best described by many friends over these past years.  In the past few days, we have read so many loving testimonials of his friendships. Here are just a few that I would like to share with you.

" He was a guy that everyone loved! I loved listening to his stories and just seeing his smiling face. He will definitely be missed and never forgotten!"

"Saddened when the greatest people are taken away and given to the angels above. Saddened how one of the most energetic, genuine, and empathetic people can no longer give his heart to every person he touched. May you forever be with us Chad, you were the light of everyone around you and it still doesn't feel real. A father figure, a friend, and so much more. 
Every time we talked you never, ever forgot to tell me how important your son Dalton meant to you. And how he was the best thing to ever happen to you. We all love you so much, and I know that youĺl continue to take care of us." 

"As we pass through this life some of us are lucky enough to come across a person who makes you view the world in a completely different way. Thereś just something about a Chad..although many share his name, he was truly one of a kind. His smile was contagious. His stories endless. The love he showed others was unmatched. I canẗ recall a time when God poured so much kindness into one person. Take a note from Chad "Wild" Myhre and live the life you love every single minute of every single day....anything less is simply unacceptable."

Meg, Dalton, and I appreciate any support and also ask whether you can contribute or not, to please keep us in your thoughts. We would appreciate it if you shared this campaign to show the world who Chad was, and how much he meant to us.
