Chad Wallace Frederick Connolly passed away in Barrie, Ontario at the age of 43.
He is predeceased by his Stepfather Terry Allen, his four Grandparents; Mary and Wally Connolly, Dorothy and Fred Howe. His Uncle Mark Howe, Aunt Janice Aberdeen, Cousin Candi Jesso and Stepbrother Jim Doucet.
He will be greatly missed by Kieran, Macaila, Summer and Lexis, his Granddaughter Ariya, his father Wally Connolly, his two Stepsisters Monique Allen, and Brittany Pelley.
Chad adored his family; they were all his reason for being. He fought hard to battle mental illness, but when Chad had good days, he was a complete clown, always saying silly things, kind of like his Grampy Howe - sometimes never stopped LOL. I will forever miss my son, my only birth child. We would have hard times. but always loved harder. I can't wait to see you once again, my beloved son!
I hope you keep smiling my son, have fun with everyone in Heaven, it’s your turn to shine, and not stress anymore.
"I Have this"
I LOVE YOU CHAD.
A Celebration of his Life will take place on Saturday, December 2nd, 2023, from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at the Burton Ave United Church, taking place in the basement (37 Burton Ave, Barrie, ON L4N 3J3)
Thank you all who have had faith in Chad, and those who helped us all cope during this difficult time. Mental Health is a Demon in itself! I love you all!!!!!
