Chase was a son, brother and friend. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, welding and eighteen wheelers. Chase was a proud junior member of the Somerville Volunteer Fire Department. Chase had a huge heart, wanted everyone around him to be happy and was always willing to give a helping hand. He was a super protective big brother to seven sisters who were his world. Chase loved the color pink because some of his close family members fought the good fight against breast cancer. He aspired to be a bull rider and always wore his cowboy best. Chase was always a light in a dark time and can now fly free.
