Chad was born in Columbus, Ohio, the son of Lisa K. McClendon and David “Corky” Anderson. He attended Columbus Public Schools, graduating from Briggs High School. He was formerly employed by the United States Postal Service and various warehouse in the city.
Chad never met a stranger. Everyone he came across would know who he was. He would tell you just how it was and how he felt, without sugar coating it.
He was a loving son, father, brother, grandson, cousin, and devoted friend who will sadly be missed by all that loved him.
He enjoyed writing in every form…poems, short stories, and music. He loved basketball (having played in high school), motorcycles, vintage cars, and collecting baseball cards. He was generous with his time and efforts.
