He was born on November 19, 1968, to Dennis and Diane (Wadel) Osgood in La Crosse, Wis.

Chad was named sailor of the year for 1992. He also received the Navy Achievement Medal from the Secretary of the Navy. In 2001, Chad met his wife, Angela (Niedfeldt). They married in 2003 in Mindoro. Chad was blessed with six beautiful daughters; his girls were his pride and joy. Chad had a strong work ethic and always provided for his family. Over the years he worked as an oversized load truck driver, quarry foreman and eventually started his own business, Osgood Services, which specialized in sand and gravel, staffing and consulting. Chad enjoyed hunting with his father, father-in-law, and daughters, farming, traveling the U.S for work and for fun with his wife and daughters, and making his friends and family laugh. Chad’s life may have been cut short, but he touched the lives of many.
