Chad Everett Davis, 42, of Sherwood, WI died in a drowning accident on January 19, 2013. Chad was born on April 28, 1970 in Appleton, WI to George "Woody" & Marsha (Berton) Davis. Chad attended Appleton East High School, where he excelled in wrestling for four years, and graduated in 1988. Chad attended UW Fox Valley and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in 1993 with a degree in Criminal Justice. In that same year, Chad met his future wife, Nancy Engler. They were married on September 26, 1998 in Chilton, WI. For a time, Chad worked as a Correction's Officer for Outagamie County and later joined TEK Systems where he worked for the past 15 years and served most recently as a Senior Account Executive.
The real joy and focus of Chad's life was his wife, Nancy and two children, Ellie (10) and Spencer (8). Chad was a devoted husband, father and family man. His dedication to his children was evident in the countless hours he spent with them, coaching soccer, reading, spending time in Door County at the family lake house, at the ledge house in Quinney, and most recently, at Chad and Nancy's new cottage on Boot Lake, in Lakewood, WI. Chad was determined to take care of his family and worked hard to provide for them. He supported them in all their interests. He was particularly supportive of Nancy's business endeavors and was often by her side helping with school and community projects.
Chad was a loyal and dedicated husband, dad, son, brother, brother-in-law and son-in-law. Chad was always willing to offer a hand to his parents and in-laws when needed, often going above and beyond the call of duty.
Chad was a good friend. Chad was passionate in everything he did, whether he was deer hunting, ATVing, playing paintball, refurbishing his Mustang and Ranchero, or just socializing. He kept in touch with old friends and extended family. Chad was a gun collector, historian and gun enthusiast. He never missed an opportunity to enjoy a good cigar with his brother, Jim.
Chad's encouragement, patience, tenderness, devotion and passion touched everyone he knew. His infectious smile will always be remembered.
Chad is survived by his wife, Nancy of Sherwood; daughter, Ellie and son, Spencer both at home; parents, George "Woody" and Marsha Davis; 3 brothers, Jim (Robyn) Davis of Barstow, California; Mark (Ann) Davis, of Oshkosh; Shawn (Kathy) Davis of Appleton; his father-in-law, William Engler, Jr. of Chilton; a brother-in-law, Bill (Laurie) Engler of Appleton; 4 sisters-in-law, Pat (Tom) Parish of Laramie; WY, Paula (Terence) Fox of Manitowoc; Susan Engler and her husband Stu Hopfensperger of Plymouth; Sarah (Joel) Weitz of Madison. Chad is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Chad was predeceased by his mother-in-law, Gail Engler and most recently a cousin Arnie Berton.
Funeral service will be at 10:00 am on Friday, January 25, 2013 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Sherwood. Burial will follow in the High Cliff Cemetery. Friends may call at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm on Thursday, January 24, 2013. A time of sharing and story telling will be held at 8:00 pm Thursday evening at the funeral home.
There will be no visitation held Friday morning, but friends are invited to visit with the family at the luncheon following burial.
A memorial fund has been established in the name of Chad Davis. Donations are appreciated in memory of Chad, or in honor of Ellie & Spencer Davis for the St. John - Sacred Heart School in Sherwood.
