Chad married the love of his life, Heather Downing Kepner, on June 10, 2006. They have two sons, his pride and joy, Brayden (9) and Andrew (7). His beautiful wife and loving sons survive.

Chad was the plant and engineering manager at Form/Tec Plastics - Shields Windshields in Martinsville, Indiana, for 13 years. He was integral in the growth and success of the Shields line. His work ethic and professionalism were unmatched.
Chad loved the outdoors and helping his sons in sports. He enjoyed hunting and loved fishing and hiking with his family. His family was his life. You rarely saw the Kepners without each other.
