Chad Daniel Whisenant was born May 24, 1981, to Danny and Judy (Hope) Whisenant in Dallas, TX. No parents have ever been prouder of their child. They taught him to love God fiercely, to love others unreservedly, and to work with dedication and integrity. He married Ashley Beck on October 17, 2009, in Levelland, TX, and they lived in Lubbock, TX until his passing. Chad and Ashley were best friends who shared the pleasures of their lives and walked through trials hand-in-hand. Their love story will live on through the lives of their two sons, Ryder and Nolan, who were his greatest pride and the light of his life.
Friends and family will remember Chad for his perseverance. He showed tremendous courage as he faced life’s challenges, and he never quit or complained when he faced difficulty. He was meticulous, and whatever he did, he did with precision and care. Chad was exceptionally generous and always willing to lend a hand to those in need. He was a great listener with a sneaky sense of humor.
Chad lived life to the fullest and found delight in his work and in everyday life. He enjoyed traveling and encouraging others to sample a wide variety of cuisine. He had a passion for his children and strived to pass along his joy of motors, music, and love of God. Chad left this earth surrounded by the respect and admiration of his loved ones who will continue to honor his legacy by living their lives to the fullest.
Chad is survived by his wife, Ashley Whisenant; sons, Ryder and Nolan Whisenant; parents, Danny and Judy Whisenant; maternal grandfather, Sherman Hope; father and mother-in-law, Steve and Kim Beck; brother and sister-in-law, Jonathan and Lacy Beck; Grandparents-in-law, Marylou and Rayburn Clark, and Elizabeth Beck; two nieces; along with numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
