Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Pam & LC, I would like to express heartfelt sympathy in the loss of your son Chad. Hoping you will find peace and comfort in the good memories you shared with Chad. - Posted by: Carla Good (Friend) on: May 21, 2019
So sad to hear of Chad's passing. Hard to believe. I didn't know Chad very well. We were on a relay team together for the Manitoba Marathon several years ago. And I knew of him through the Winnipeg community in general. I think of him as such a vibrant, enthusiastic and genuine person. He was such an uplifting person to be around. I am so very sorry for your loss. Sending kind love to you all. - Posted by: Lanora Robertson (Aquaintance) on: May 20, 2019
LC & Pam, we send our sincere condolence in the loss of your son, Chad. It is a very difficult time to lose a son at a young age. Just remember the good times as he was growing up. - Posted by: Ralph & Shirley Sinclair (Friend ) on: May 19, 2019
I am shaken to hear of Chad's death. I experienced him at Winnipeg Presbytery as a social justice change-maker with deep wisdom and a dazzling smile. His enormous contributions to the good cannot be underestimated. - Posted by: barb janes (colleague) on: May 19, 2019
