Pallbearers for Chase are:  Austin Faul, Brian Nipstad, Ethan Lammers, Tyler Hehn all friends and Jacob Norr, Josh Whirley, Lucas Norr and Travis Whirley cousins.

Chase attended Kindred High School and throughout his short life was an avid outdoorsman with a love for hunting and fishing with his family.   He also loved to ride the 4-Wheeler, trucks, tractors, and snowmobiles all the while enjoying his time on the farm and the lake.  Chase had a passion for listening to music and playing his guitars.  But his prize possession this summer was his 1988 Oldsmobile.

Chase is now at peace with his Heavenly Father and will be forever, deeply missed by his family & friends.

    “Remembrance is a golden chain Death tries to break, but all in vain. To have, to love, and then to part is the greatest sorrow of one’s heart. The years may wipe out many things but some they wipe out never. Like memories of those happy times when we were all together.”

    This was a quote a friend shared, I do not know who wrote it, but it is very beautiful. Chase is gone but he lives on in the hearts of many!

    Our very sincere sympathies to all of you! Hold on to each other to find comfort and peace!

    Renton WAIt’s hard for us to find words that mignt bring you comfort at this time of loss but perhaps just knowing that we are praying and thinking of you will somehow help you at this difficult time.

    My favorite memory of Chase is the Christmas card picture of him covered in mud.

    our love goes out to you.

    Mark Tammy & Family,
    We were so sorry to hear about Chase, our thoughts & prayers continue to include your family.
    When we told Lacey she said that he got her through 8th grade after Brittany moved. When Lacey was getting confirmed Chase texted her & said “I should be up there with you” Look to all the good memories that you have of him, they can’t be taken away.

    Tammy, Mark and Family. Our hearts and prayers go out to you all. Such a loss. I remember when Chase and Tyler played baseball and football. The one memory that i’ll always remember is the time that Tammy and I did the chest bump at a baseball game and the boys were a little shocked. i don’t think they wanted to see that again.We had alot of good times with Chase and your family at the games. We will never forget you Chase! God bless your family.

  26. Michelle Losing says:

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family at this time and for all the days ahead. I will never forget the year he played baseball with Nathaniel and we got to know your family. He is a terrific boy and son. Our heart aches as we should never have to bury one of our children and especially at such a young age. We lost our baby Nadia 8 years ago and the memories always stay and the love does too. At this extremely shocking time please remember many people are thinking of all of you and praying for your family and for Chase. He will be greatly missed. Michelle, Steve, Nathaniel, Naomi and Noah Losing

    Tammy, you and your family are in my prayers. At times like this I like to remember the Footprints Prayer ending: The Lord replied, “My precious, precious
    child. I love you, and I would never,
    never leave you during your times of
    trial and suffering. When you saw only one set of footprints, It was then that I carried you.” The Lord is with you this day and all your life, Tammy, Mark and family.
