April 26, 1961-Oct 15, 2015

Chad Heiser died in the early hours of Oct. 15, 2015. Chad was the first born son to Frank and Frances Heiser. He arrived on April 26, 1961, in Dickinson, N.D.

Chad graduated from Manderson-Hyattville High School in 1979. He soon married Teresa Perry, with whom he was blessed with two children, a son Josiah and a daughter Jessica. Chad and Teresa would later divorce.

Chad lived most of his life in Wyoming, where he worked for several companies, most recently finding a position with the National Park Service at Bighorn Canyon NBA. How fitting for him, outdoors!

In 2013, Chad met the love of his life, Mayra, while on vacation in Belize, where he went to fulfill his dream of becoming a certified diver. Chad and Mayra were married in January of 2014. Chad spent the next year and a half diligently working with both governments to bring Mayra to the United States. He was finally successful in August of 2015, only for him to be taken home much too soon.

Chad was a man who loved deeply, whether it was a woman, a friend or an animal. He will be missed by many friends, too many to mention by name.

Chad leaves behind his wife, Mayra; parents, Frank and Frances; his children, Josiah (Jayrel) and Jessica; and his granddaughter, Ava He also leaves behind his sister and brother-in-law, Dianna and Chris Blom and their children, Cody and Levi; and his brother and sister-in-law, Bay and Debra Heiser.

It would not be right to leave out his companions and sidekicks: Choco, Little Joe, Meeho and Drifter.

There wasn't a mountain too high or a river too wide; Chad would find a way. Happy hunting and fishing, Chad!

Cremation has taken place. Memorial services were held on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Lovell Bible Church. Condolences may be sent to the family online at
