Chad Allen Stamper of Brook Park, Minnesota was born September 15, 1997 and left us to be our Angel on June 29, 2013. He was only 15 years old: a life short-lived, but full of love and adventure.
Chad was born in Mora, MN and grew into a fine young man at his home along the Snake River. Chad had 5 brothers and 3 sisters, with whom he made so many memories.
Chad had so many friends and nicknames like Cash, Whitey, Q-tip, and of course, Chad Mullet Stamper, which he claimed so proudly. Chad was a leader and was very comfortable and confident with himself and the choices and people he surrounded himself with.
Chad loved the outdoors. He built so many memories with his Dad, brothers, sisters, friends, and Grandpa, out hunting and fishing, and had so many fun times on the river with family and friends.
Chad had a lot of school spirit. He was so proud to be a Mustang. He had such a drive and passion to do better and his best to win. Chad loved his horse, Charlie. They both had such a free spirit.
Chad was a loving son, wonderful brother and grandson, a fun uncle, and a good buddy to everyone. He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Chad was preceded in death by paternal grandparents Homer and Ermadine Stamper, maternal grandmother Reneé Larsen, and cousin Timothy Ridge.
