I just returned from the Memorial Services for Chad and I am so touched and happy that I went. From walking in the door, you could feel the overwhelming presence of love and care. I was encouraged by the strength of the Winter's family and comforted by all those that made their way to the service to show there support, pay their respects, and say good buy to a man I could only dream to be as good as. It is typically cliche to say "a person always brought a smile to your face", or "a person was always there for you if you needed him", but that is exactly who Chad was. He clearly touched the lives of so many in such a short span of time, and I am blessed and grateful to have spent my high school years with him. I remember that he loved playing basketball (#15 & #24 after we got the new uniforms), he loved talking about big diesel trucks and harley davidsons with Nicole "pigeon" Quintana, loved hunting, loved Wranglers and boots and hats (i never understood that), he loved his parents, and Brani... He loved you so much. I have never seen an older brother treat his younger sister with such respect and care. Even though I lost touch with him after high school, i still consider him a great friend! I will miss him.
I love you Chad.
I miss you.
I will see you again!

I never met the man. I can tell by the responses that he was loved by many. he was a man who truly lived his life. he did more than just get up and get the job done, he interacted with others and made a differance to them, immediatly, not later, and not silently thruogh prayer. he was a grreat man of action. we should all be more like this glowing example of god's will in a life. my condolences to the family,but rest easy knowing he effected others with his life.

Chad was a wonderful man. He could put a smile on anyone's face. I don't remember any bad memory that I have with him. There is not a day that I don't thank God for bringing such a wonderful man into my life. I knew Chad not only as my mom's boyfriend but I knew him as a dad I never had. It's been 5 years but I remember him like it was yesterday. I have a lot if good memories with him and my mom. I will miss and love Chad forever. He taught me a lot about myself and others. God bless Wayne and Elena
