Corrections Officer Chad Hilborn was a well loved father, friend, son, brother, and husband.  Chad was killed in a multi car accident around 7:45 a.m. on Michigan Avenue near Arkona Road in Bridgewater Township,  on his way home from work on the morning of February 13, 2015 at the young age of 33.  Chad has been an officer at the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office since 2011.  Anyone that has ever met Chad will tell you he had the biggest heart and always had a smile on his face.  He loved his wife and children more than anyone I have met.  Chad is survived by his wife, two daughters (4 years old) and (8 months).  You will be greatly missed sir.

I was fortunate enough to get the chance to work with Hilborn when he started at the County, and he was one of the most even tempered, competent and professional guys I've ever met. The County lost one hell of an Officer, and his Family lost one hell of a guy. Beyond that there aren't words. R.I.P.

You will missed so much by all of us who were lucky enough to have known you. Everyone at the department enjoyed working with you every shift, everyday! The young and old, respected you Chad more then anyone else!! You always had a positive attitude, gave 100%, never had a bad day and lead by example. And what I personally will miss the most are the stories you would tell, mostly of your family; You absolutely Loved being a Dad, a Husband and a Son!!

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Hilborn family and friends. Lord please wrap your arms around Chads wife and daughters over the next few days, weeks, months, and years as they will need you to help them through this. To Chads wife: there are no words that can be said to make the pain and hurt go away. Please let the ones around you help you, let them be your rock to hold you up on your bad days and on your good days smile with them even if it's through the tears as you remember all you memories of him. My heart goes out to you and your daughters for many years to come. Keep his memory alive with not only your heart and love, but also with all the great stories that I'm sure are out there. My deepest thoughts and prayers go to you and your little girls. May the Lord help you through and may Chad wrap his beautiful wings around you and them tight enough that you can feel his love. R.I.P. Officer Hilborn.

Our family suffered a great loss today. Grace, I am so sorry for you and the kids. No words can be spoken at this time that will lessen your heartache. Time is the only thing that can do that. Chad though gone physically still lives on in our hearts, memories and through you, your children, and your love for him.
