Sarasota, FL, US
PFC, 20th Engineer Brigade
9/21/2011, Fayetteville, NC, US
Chad P Dellit was born July 17, 1989 in Muskegon MI and moved to Sarasota FL February 2004. Chad graduated from Riverview High School 2007, moved to Fulton IL July 2008, and joined the Army September 22, 2008 to become a geospatial engineer.
He enjoyed life and serving others. When he was in grade school he would help at the nursing homes and assisted living with his dad, decorating wheel chairs and taking residents on outings. When he was old enough they hired him as a maintenance assistant at the assisted living home. During high school he worked at Albertsons grocery store as a bagger then as night stocking manager. He always wanted to be a soldier and to serve the United States of America.
He was a great friend to many people; he touched so many hearts with his contagious smile and ability to make everyone laugh. He has always enjoyed the outdoors, hunting and fishing, mudding, trucks, and he was very mechanically inclined, taking everything apart and putting it back together (most of the time). He has always worked hard and played hard. He put his heart and soul into everything he has ever done.
Chad lived life to its fullest; as seen from the post from his facebook page 3 days before his death. His profile picture was taken in Walmart with his helmet on sitting on a little bike with training wheels.
