Chad Dobson passed away on March 19, 2019 at the age of 40, the result of a long and difficult fight with depression and alcoholism, to which our hearts are so saddened. Chad was born and raised in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Chad was preceded in death by his sister, Amy (Dobson) Lawler (1/27/16); most recently his daughter, Kayla Dobson (1/26/19); and his cousin, Shannon Nelson.
Chad is survived by his parents, Craig and Cheryl (McKinnon) Dobson; as well as his life partner, Teresa Bergman and her two sons, Josh and Sean Trainor, which Chad raised as his own and was the only father that they really ever knew. Chad is also survived by his niece, Haley Katz of Jacksonville, FL; and his granddaughter, Mila Dobson of Colorado Springs. He is survived by Morning Star Coyhis, the mother of his daughter, Kayla Dobson. He is further survived by his aunts and uncles: Connie Nelson of Colorado Springs; Scott and Rhonda Dobson of Colorado Springs; Bill and Dottie McKinnon of Blacksburg, VA; Steve and Tammy McKinnon of Abingdon, VA; and Gerald and Diane Atkins of Roanoke, VA; in addition to many cousins.
Chad was known for having a big heart and did many good things for people out of the goodness of his heart. He loved to laugh and was known for making people laugh. He loved people unconditionally. He will be truly missed by his family and friends. In his passing, his parents are relieved that Chad will no longer have to fight the terrible addiction of alcohol and are blessed knowing that their son knew the Lord.
Memorial services will be held at Rocky Mountain Calvary Church on Sunday, March 31st, 2019 at 2:00 P.M. The address is 4285 North Academy Boulevard, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
