On October 16, 2021, Chad Williams Christmas joined his two brothers, Brad and Randy, and his niece, Tina, and numerous other loved ones in Heaven.\n\nChad was born in Spanish Fork, UT, on June 6, 1970, but grew up in Emery County, exploring places like Joe's Valley with his parents, Ray and Pat Christmas. In Castle Dale, he was surrounded by outdoor adventure, which fostered his passion for hunting and fishing. He graduated from Emery High in 1987 and later earned a degree as a diesel mechanic from the College of Eastern Utah. Upon graduation, he was recruited by Smith Detroit and moved to Boise, Idaho, where he met the love of his life, Janelle Schild.\n\nIn Idaho, he developed his talents for woodworking and photography. With his camera, he captured images of the natural world but more importantly took photographs of the children he nurtured and raised, Jon and Shayenne Coats. His grandparents, Gladys and Bill Christmas and Wendell and Ruth Evans, provided a foundation of values and a strong work ethic, which served him well as a parts manager and mechanic at TA Trucking in Boise.\n\nChad is survived by his wife of 18 years, Janelle; his children, Jon and Shayenne Coats; his parents, Ray and Pat Christmas; his sister, DeAnn Malone; and a niece, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and in-laws. \n\nFamily members and friends will honor Chad's legacy at a memorial service Friday, November 5, 2021 at 12:00 noon at the Castle Dale 3rd Ward, 165 West 800 North, Castle Dale, Utah.\n\nHe will be missed but never forgotten.\n\nFamily and friends may sign the online guestbook and share memories of Chad at www.fausettmortuary.com.
