Chad Brandon Deere, 44, of Bryan, entered eternal rest Thursday, April 23, 2015 at his home. From the time Chad was a small child until the day he passed away , he knew two speeds, Wide Open or Dead Stop. His friends gave him the nickname “W.O.C” (Wide Open Chad). He was opinionated, loud, funny, and had a huge heart.
Chad loved the outdoors whether it was fishing or out muddin’ on his ATV. He loved to work on just about anything, and that earned him the nickname “Mr. Fix It.” He had several nicknames but the most important one was friend.
Chad passed away unexpectedly and as much as losing him hurts, we know that God does not make mistakes. Chad leaves behind his mother Susan Walls Deere of Roanoke, TX; father David Deere of Sulphur, LA; uncles, Dennis Deere of Lake Charles, LA, Daryl Deere of Sulphur, LA; brother Derek Deere of Orange, TX; special friend Amanda Yates; and numerous nieces and nephews.
