Chad Michael Ladwig, 52, of Johnstown, passed away June 24, 2022 at NCMC in Greeley. He was born June 13, 1970 in Cherokee, Iowa to Larry Don and Kristin Elizabeth (Rowen) Ladwig where he grew up.

At the age of 10, the family moved to Greeley, and in 1989 he graduated from Greeley West High School.

Chad and his brothers own Midtown Auto Sales in Greeley. 


He enjoyed all things with cars: NASCAR and racing, camping, golfing, the Denver Broncos and watching all kinds of sporting events, but most of all he enjoyed time with his family, especially watching his boys play sports. He loved a good game of Cribbage and playing any kind of card game.
