September 14, 2017

Chad Anthony Shero, 44, passed away suddenly in Scottsdale, Ariz., on September 7, 2017.

Chad was born in Pasadena, Calif., on July 7, 1973.  

He was an enthusiast of life, which he shared with everyone he knew, loved, and befriended. He lived for adventure, for risk, reward, and to the fullest.

Chad was an avid sports fan, college athlete, and earned several prestigious athletic awards. Chad attended the University of Mary in Bismark, N.D., on a football scholarship. He was a keynote-featured speaker at his Alma Mater after succeeding in several business and personal ventures throughout his life. Chad was a lifelong fan of the professional football team, Los Angeles Rams.

Chad loved hiking and biking; from the lakes in Minnesota, to the mountains in Wyoming and the desert in Arizona. He also resided in all three states. He loved to ski, fish, boat, jet ski, paddle board, four wheeling and enjoyed everything the outdoors had to offer. Chad adored horses. He participated, and won many awards in the rodeo when he was a child, also owning several of his own horses, and many more animals, on his ranch outside Thermopolis. He was taking wrangler lessons in Arizona. He lived for his morning coffee time with his wife, Angela, where no topic was off limits and the depth of their relationship was formed.

He was a master chef, loved to BBQ and create amazing recipes for family and friends. He was a gifted host and planned the best parties for family gatherings and friend events. Chad was fond of softball. He was the sponsor and coach for his friends' co-ed leagues with family and colleagues, men's leagues with friends, and helping his own family learn the game he loved to play.  

He was self employed, a proven entrepreneur who was unmatched in developing and implementing innovative businesses; in logistics, cleaning, and agriculture. He owned and operated Kuk Logistics, Blue Grace Logistics, and Blue Cleaning. Chad started his first LLC when he was 16 with the help of his friends and continued to create and build businesses his entire life. Chad had an exceptionally brilliant mind and it showed in the tremendous success of his businesses and his relationships. 

Chad was a fun-loving husband, adoring father, the best brother, and loyal son. His family and friends were his everything. He never gave up on himself nor on anyone he knew, especially his family. He lit up every room, every moment, every life he encountered. Chad made the best of every moment he was given. The brightest light in Chad's life was his daughter, Shea Ann. He took her on many adventures, taught her how to do sports, cook, be brave in moments that were scary, taught her to be kind to others, and encouraged her to take risks.

He is survived by his wife, Angela Shea Shero; daughter, Shea Ann Shero; brother, Rodney Shero; sister-in-law, Liz Shero; mother, Cheryl Ann Shero; step-father, Jack Kuiper; step-sister, Kathy Camino; many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
