Chad was a graduate of Galion High School in 2006 where he was drummer in the high school marching band and graduated in 2011 from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology. He was an avid reader, enjoyed collecting, listened to many kinds of music and played with many small bands. Chad was currently employed as a cook at Denny’s Restaurant in Mansfield and previously worked at the Red Lobster in Mansfield for 10 years.
