Chadwick “Chad” Robert Vahrenkamp, 44, of Dallas, Texas passed away on January 31, 2022. He was the son of Cathy and Bill Vahrenkamp.
Chad attended Martin High School and graduated in 1996. He enjoyed all sports but played football and the people he met that would become friends. After graduation he enrolled at TCU and after one year transferred to Baylor University. Chad graduated with a BBA majoring in Marketing. He was terribly devoted to the Baylor Bears football Program and Men’s and Women’s Basketball Teams.
After graduation Chad worked for several years in Commercial Real Estate but eventually moved to Houston to work with his Dad in Powerwrap, LP products sales and the Oil business. He later worked selling Water Purification Systems in Houston but finally came back to Arlington to sell Kinetico Water Systems in the Metroplex where he was very successful. While in the Metroplex, Chad met numerous friends in Granbury at DeCordova Bend Estates where he was a part of the Volleyball League. Energetic and always life of the party, Chad loved to make new friends. Chad never met a stranger and was loved by all who knew him. To Chad everyone was unconditionally accepted.
Chad was a fighter in life through his many adversities and difficult times, but he never gave up and did what it took to overcome and start again. He always knew he had better days ahead. Chad loved Jesus and believed in His ability to always help him.
Chad loved his family and was dedicated to them. He was always ready to help and do anything for you. He was very close to his two brothers Josh and Billy and sisters-in-law. He was “Super Uncle” and will really be missed by Mila, Maxwell, Trace, Annie and Blakely. Chad loved Jesus and believed in his ability to always be with Him.
Chad will be terribly missed as his family and Friends loved him. His love for others and his joy in being with others was a blessing to us all.

  1. Chad was such a bright light with a twinkle in his eye and the most charming smile that was always on his face. He gave the best hugs and always made you feel like he was so glad to see you.
    What a huge void we will feel Chad, until we see you again!
    You were loved! ♥️

  2. CandleImageTo the family and friends of Chad I send my deepest condolences. I met Chadwick in Lubbock Texas in 2014. Always full of life and energy. Biggest Baylor Bear fan I’ve ever met. Always dancing in place to their fight song showing me where he would be sitting with his dad and brothers on Saturdays. Always on the move always doing something I could think of many talks Chad and I had for hours walking. Chadwick was a great person and it breaks my heart knowing that I won’t be able to tell him what a good friend he was for me in a dark time in my life. I really wish I could make it to the services but unfortunately I live in Laredo Texas and won’t make it. Chadwick, thank you for the heart to heart conversations when I needed them the most. Rest In Peace dude. Your friend AJ Flores-Stellema

  3. Bill, Cathy, Pat & I are so sorry. As I read about Chad, I was reminded that Julee was your kids baby sitter years ago. We all pray that the peace that only Jesus can supply will attend you and your family.

  4. CandleImageYou did not know me, but I know your brother Billy. He is such a kind hearted soul, which I know you were! You’re smile is beautiful and contagious! RIP my friend. ❤️🙏🏻

  5. Cathy, Bill, Billy and Josh,
    There are no words to express my condolences for your loss! Chad, and your family were such an important part of Ryan’s life. Such great kiddos and friendships from the “enchanted lake” group! The Boys were/are such great kids. Funny, bright, and always protective of each other and their friends! I shall remember Chad always! May God be with you always!

  6. Praying for the Vahrenkamp family. May you find peace and comfort during this time. I graduated with Chad in ‘96, and heard of this awful news just today. I’m so very sorry for your loss.

  7. Bill, Cathy, Billy, and Josh,
    Denny and I are so sad for your family. I remember Chad being handsome and always smiling. When I think of one of your boys, all three names, Billy, Chad, and Josh, come to mind. What a wonderful blessing to have three sons.

  8. Praying for peace and comfort for your family. I have such fond memories of Chad and the Vahrenkamp family from the Young Junior High days.

  9. Spot on with this write-up, I truly believe this site needs a great deal more attention. Iíll probably be back again to read more, thanks for the information!
