Gave of himself freely. I was one that was blessed by his kindness by helping me learn to walk again after my horrific accident in late 2010. He was always kind to my son who was only three at the time. I have many fond times with him and can’t think of a better human being.

I have worked with Chad at Blue Buffalo for about a year. Chad will be greatly missed!! He was always so kind and a pleasure to talk to. He had always had a positive attitude that was contagious. I am grateful I had the opportunity to know and work with Chad, there will definitely be a void moving forward. My thoughts and prayers are with the McCain family.

First thing that comes to mind when I think of Chad, is just what a nice guy. Always wishing folks a nice day, smart, capable, hard-working. One wishes that all co-workers could be like Chad.

Your friends at Blue miss you dearly.

I can honestly say that Chad was one of the nicest people I have ever known. He worked with us and was very highly regarded by all throughout our network. He is very much thought of and greatly missed.

It's been years, but I remember you coming to our church at Wesleyan Holiness, your dad would play guitar and sing. Also my family coming out to spend the day in Springfield all those years ago. You'll never be forgotten bud

My brother was very protective of family growing up. He defended my smart mouth on many occasions. I was very proud as a younger brother watching him run long touchdowns or breaking records in track growing up. He was extremely proud of me when I made varsity soccer his senior year and got to play together. He continued to root me on in the following years and was prideful in my successes in high school sports. He was a wonderful brother to me and I loved him and he loved me and I will always fill confident that he felt the same.

I have known the McCain family since my school years, always a very kind and caring family. My memories and they are some fun ones are when Chad & my brother wrestled for the Platteview Trojans, I was a few years younger but Jami was even younger! I did not miss a match and neither did Jami we would be girls & mess around on the mats & of course it always made Chad smile. He was also 1 of my supporters as I was the 1st ever female to wrestle especially in my district! The memories continued on from there! Chad you are 1 of a kind Rest Easy My Friend & Much Love, Kristal (Lil Tex)

To be honest every time I got to see him was a good memory. He was one of the kindest, funniest, good hearted people I ever had the pleasure to know. I know that's typical of someone to say that about someone after they pass, it's almost generic. But anyone who reads this can attest he was all that and much more. And it's going to be mentioned over and over but that laugh... That damn laugh. I'm gonna miss hearing that. To the family no words can change what you are going through they can only help. Know that we are all here for you no matter what. Love you McCain's
