After college Chad went on to own and operate the Drive Thru Party Store in Shields, MI for 16 years. For the last several years he managed Grand Traverse Distillery and Tasting Room in Frankenmuth. Chad enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, and music. He had a wonderful sense of humor, with a comeback for anything. He loved telling jokes. Chad was a very loyal man who loved to spend time with his family. He had many friends who were a great support system and he loved having conversations with everyone.
