Chad Alan Zeutschel, 48, of Fargo, ND passed away on 12/29/2022 after a brief illness.

Chad faced many medical challenges in his life but was always optimistic and had a smile on his face. He loved to travel with family and most especially with his best friend, Greg Elfering.

He attended Chefs School at Moorhead Technical College and was known for his baking skills. He worked for Fleet Farm for over 25 years in various positions.

Chad was preceded in death by his grandparents, David (Katherine Stalter) Hanson and Kurt (Delores Toepke) Zeutschel.

Chad is survived by his parents, Keith (Linda Hanson) Zeutschel; brother, Jonathan Zeutschel; sister, Lori (Zeutschel) Ackerson; brother-in-law, Greg Ackerson; niece, Sara Ackerson; his beloved dog, Dakota ; and many uncles, aunts, 1st and 2nd cousins, as well as dear friends.
