Chad Austin Longshore

March 28, 1980 ‒ February 13, 2021

Galena, Ohio

Chad Austin Longshore, age 40, of Galena, died unexpectedly at home on Saturday, February 13, 2021.  He was a self-employed in the construction industry.

Born March 28, 1980 in Columbus to Bruce W. and Kimberly S. Longshore.

Chad had found himself and had his life in the place he had searched for.  He loved his wife of 19 years, Raejean, and his children dearly.  Chad was always a momma’s boy no matter how old, that never changed.  His smile was something that showed his heart, which was huge.  Chad was giving and generous.  He was the person you wanted to meet and be your friend.  He was not done, not finished, not ready.  Chad will be missed by all whose lives he touched and who had loved him.

Chad was preceded in death by his grandmother, Jewell Stover.

In addition to his loving wife, Raejean, Chad is survived by children, Austin M. Longshore, Jonathon W. Longshore and Riley G. Longshore; mother, Kimberly S. (Stover) Longshore of Sunbury; father, Bruce W. Longshore of Sunbury; brothers, Bill Longshore of Sunbury and Skyler Marshall of Florida; grandparents, Phil and Judy Longshore of Sunbury, Wilson Stover of Galena; other relatives and many friends.

I have very good memories of Chad and Bill being at my house as I was their babysitter, the baseballs all over the field behind the house or those that made it there some went in the neighbors yard that he gathered and gave to another neighbor boy. Chad will be missed by many. RIP and keep smiling over your family.
