Chase Duane Ladwig, son of Chad Ladwig and Amanda (Olson) Ladwig was born April 14, 2005, in Eau Claire, WI.
Chase was raised in Fairchild and attended school in Merrillan before entering Osseo Fairchild High School where he graduated in 2023. When he was old enough to work he had worked in Fairchild for Berger Custom Hardwoods and Bertrang Roofing.
Chase grew up fishing on the pond in Fairchild and over the years he and his big brother Charlie had many great times fishing throughout Wisconsin. He also enjoyed hunting, long boarding and playing football in middle school, but fishing was his passion. Chase had a tremendous sense of humor and when visiting with family and friends he was always the life of the party. He was an avid Bears fan and had a good Bears-Packer rivalry with his beloved aunt Doty.
Chase passed away at his home in Fairchild early Monday morning, November 6, 2023, at the age of 18 years, 6 months and 23 days. He will be forever missed and dearly loved by his mother Amanda
