Chad Earl Londry


It’s with great sorrow to say Chad passed away on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 after experiencing complications from a bone marrow transplant he received to treat Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). 

Chad was born and raised in Michigan and moved to California on New Year’s Day, 1989.  The most important things to Chad were his family and friends and spending time together traveling, sailing, cooking and entertaining.  Chad spent the majority of his career in the hospitality and sales industries.  He was an employee of Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits and truly enjoyed introducing his customers to fabulous wines and learning as much as he could about his portfolio.  Chad was very proud to have earned his Wine & Spirit Education Trust diploma and was a member of Court of Sommeliers (Certified Sommelier).  He had several other hobbies and interests and loved sports, camping, boating, gardening and music.  Chad knew his way around a tool box and there was nothing he couldn’t fix or build himself.  The homemade pepper jellies and salsas he made from his garden are legendary.  He was a proud Board Member of Exceptional Needs Network, volunteered as a Canine Comfort handler for Valley Humane Society and loved coaching his daughter’s soccer and softball teams.

Chad faced his illness and treatment with courage and positivity and never let his diagnosis be his prognosis.  A brave warrior until the very end Chad will be missed the most by his soulmate and Wife, Lisa, his only child and beautiful Daughter, Haley and his constant companion and best furry friend, Riley.  His Parents, Jerry and Mary, his Father-in-Law Don, his Sisters and Brothers, Jodi, Jason, Kathi, Liz, Kim, Mike, Don Jr., Sandy and Bub.  His Nieces and Nephews Emily, Max, Shawnae, Leah, Megan, Erin, Tony, Tresh, Kenny, Randall, Kyle, Kelli, Jesika, Hannah, Jack and Bode.  Chad is also survived by his Uncle and Godfather Jim, his Aunts Julie and Med and many cousins, extended family and friends that were his chosen family.

Chad loved the Lord and didn’t want anyone to be sad for him.  He only wanted to be the center of attention if he was on the dance floor.  Chad was the life of the party and his last request was for all to gather and celebrate his life, love and laughter.  Please join us at his Celebration of Life on Thursday, July 13, 2017, at 2:00PM at Concannon Vineyards, 4590 Tesla Rd., Livermore, CA.  Come as you are.

In lieu of flowers Chad would be most grateful for donations to be made to his favorite charity:

Chad’s family extends their deepest appreciation to everyone for all of the condolences, continued amazing love and support that they have received during this difficult time.
