Chase Mead, 26, of Springport, Michigan passed away suddenly due to an accident on July 23, 2023, in Louisville, Kentucky. He was born in Marshall, Michigan on December 31, 1996, to Jeffrey and Michele (Gibbs) Mead.

He enjoyed life! Everything outdoors…golf, hunting, fishing, skiing, and farming. Chase loved adventure, challenges and trying new things. He liked to visit local breweries and talk to the brewer, learning about their process. He understood and retained everything he ever learned.
