  1. Mr. And Mrs. Denning and family I am so very sorry for your loss and the sadness your feeling. What a wonderful son, brother, husband, and father Chad was you must be so proud. I know it’s hard but try and take comfort in knowing he is in a much better place and with our Lord. He is home and someday you all will be home and reunited with Chad. May God Bless You Always I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts Love Erika Cristantielli

  2. In my work at Light & Motion I had the pleasure of “discovering” Chad and sponsoring him and his various pursuits with lights. Chad offered us excellent advice on events to support in the northeast and whenever i spoke with the many race directors they had tremendous praise for Chad and his contributions to AR, Ultra running, and XC skiing. He was everywhere spreading his love for good health and the great outdoors! Everyone loved Chad. He often said he was training for life – he had an enthusiasm for life that was contagious! In his short time here he made this world a better place.

    My deepest condolences to his family, wife, and children. With sympathy, Heidi Hall
