In 1980, he graduated from Marysville High School. At the age of 14, Chad began working for Bruce’s Body Shop where he enjoyed working his entire life. He did all aspects of the auto body business and also drove the wrecker. He worked as an EMT for the Marysville Ambulance Service for many years. In the summertime he took pride in mowing lawns for his many customers. In the wintertime, he would get up early and work his way from the top of Main Street to the bottom and around town, pushing snow from driveways and sidewalks for anyone that needed it. Chad really enjoyed helping people and was a friend to everyone. His hobbies were working, gardening, cooking, and spending time with his family and many pets over the years. Chad, along with his wife, Sue, raised ten children and provided a loving home for more than 70 foster children. He was preceded in death by his father, Gordon Rhodes in 1976; sister, Marcia Prell in 2007; and stepfather, Claude Adams in 1998. Survivors include his wife, Sue; and 10 children; his mother, Marilee Adams, Marysville; two brothers, Jay Rhodes, Topeka, and Todd Rhodes, Haysville; and sister, Maureen Johnson, Topeka. A memorial fund has been established and will be designated later. Contributions may be sent in care of Kinsley Mortuary.
