On Oct. 22, 2003, Chandler “Chad” Christian Shetterly was born as a fraternal twin, and he gave his mother the honor of being his earthly mother for 13 years. On Friday, July 21, 2017 while playing in the river, Chad was called home and hurried from this life, and passed into the world of spirits and into the loving arms of the Lord.
He had just passed the seventh grade at Page Middle School in Gloucester. His favorite things to do were tinkering in the yard with all his yard toys: weed eater, mower, leaf blower, and four-wheeler. He liked to cook, and watch YouTube videos of four-wheelers and lawn mowers.
Chad is survived by his parents, David and Cynthia Shetterly of Gloucester; siblings, Andrew Mathews, Tiffany Lapitan, Samantha, Tara, and Emily.
