On Thursday November 10th, 2022, Chad Eberhart, loving son and brother passed away at the age of 50. Chad was born on February 12,1972 in Buffalo NY to Leo and Melody. He grew up in the city of Tonawanda with his sister Nicole, and graduated from Tonawanda High School in 1990.
Chad had a passion for NASCAR, the Buffalo Bills and the Buffalo Sabers. He loved celebrating and commiserating with his friends and family. And many good times came from traveling to events or simply watching them in the garage. He was a true fan.
From a young age Chad was surrounded with the best friends! If they were watching sports, hunting or just hanging out he was happy. Chad was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile and his kind and compassionate spirit. If you were upset so was he and you could feel his genuine love.
Chad loved to cook and he was good at it! If it was Thanksgiving, a deer from a season of hunting or simply a great steak on a Friday night, he enjoyed entertaining and being with friends and family. Chad knew no strangers, from loved ones, people he just met or someone in line at the grocery store, conversations with him were in a word... epic.
Chad was a family man. Everyone knows the special relationship with his father and best friend Leo... there are no words for that much love. He was very loving with his mother Melody and loved baking with her recipes, many that came down from his gram. He also took his job as a big brother very seriously; he was loving and protecting and was always there for Nicole when
she needed him.
Chad had a wonderful childhood headed by his Aunt Janelle, she was his biggest cheerleader and he was the apple of her eye! He had a childhood filled with little league, Boy Scouts, block
parties, building forts, the best Halloween costumes and again, those friends. Everyone stopped when Chad walked in to his grandmothers. Surrounded by Aunts, Uncles, and cousins
on both sides, we were all blessed to have each other.
He was a great uncle to his three nieces, Brooke, Hannah and Faith. He enjoyed traveling to see them and had fun with everything from alligator watching in Florida, selling tickets at the carnival or teaching them how to build a snowman and have a snowball fight! He was very proud of all their accomplishments. Chad is survived by his father Leo, his mother Melody, his sister Nicole, his Aunt Janelle, his brother in law Shane, his nieces Brooke, Hannah and Faith, his many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and his dear friends.
Calling hours with concluding Prayers will be held on Tuesday. November 15, 2022 from 5-8 PM at JOHN O. ROTH FUNERAL HOME, INC., 25 William St. (between Morgan & Broad Sts) in Tonawanda. Where we will celebrate his life... a life cut short from us so everyone in heaven can have “Chad stories “ of their own ❤
