Chad Lee Fredericksen was born to Larry and Janice (Farrell) Fredericksen, of Mitchell, South Dakota, on January 9, 1966.  The oldest brother to Camy, Cary, and Bart: Chad had the gift to make everyone feel special, he truly wanted to know how you were doing.  His kindness had no limits.  He could always bring a smile to your face either with his encouraging words or his crazy sense of humor.  He loved fast cars, expensive shoes, cheap beer and good wine.  He loved to be on the water and to travel, but most of all he loved to be home with his wife kids, friends and family.

Chad’s level of adoration and devotion to Julie, Hadlee and Holden was unwavering.  Chad and Julie loved, protected and cherished each other dearly.  While he maintained a wide variety of life interests, being able to attend to the needs of his family was always the priority.  Hadlee and Holden never doubted the love that their daddy had for them.

Chad loved his work within the hemophilia community.  His involvement, both professionally and personally, touched the lives of so many living with bleeding disorders.  He never failed to provide encouragement and guidance, based on a lifetime of experience. From an early age, Chad was taught to always keep going, don’t let anything stop you from accomplishing your goals.  It was this attitude that allowed him to have a positive and compassionate influence on so many.

Chad’s loyalty to his parents, siblings, and family, was a core guiding principle on which he based his life.  He always appreciated the love and sacrifices that were made for his health and happiness.

Most important Chad was a man of great faith.  He was a lifelong, devout Catholic who believed with all of his heart, mind and soul.  He used his faith in prayer to help others as well as himself, through good times and bad.  In the end it was this faith that allowed him to go peacefully and without fear or pain.

Chad is preceded in death by his grandparents, Melvin and Zola Fredericksen and Del and Lorraine Farrell.

And survived in life by his loving wife, Julie King Fredericksen; children Hadlee and Holden Fredericksen of Coppell; his parents Larry and Janice Fredericksen of Mitchell, SD; brother Cary and wife Shelley Fredericksen, of White Lake, SD, Bart and wife Nikki Fredericksen, of Mitchell, SD; sister Camy and husband Chris Culhane, of Tucson, AZ; in-laws Fred and Gail King of Lantana, TX and Derick and Valarie King of Rockport, TX; nephews Chase and family, Chaz, Chance, Chandler, Carter Fredericksen, Connor and Colin Culhane, and Ashton King; and nieces Alli, Demi, and Lexi Fredericksen and Ella King.
