REPLAY: 2020 Annual Golf OutingIn memory of Chad Bickler
Remembering Chad Bickler
On September 17th, the Wisconsin Security Association held their Annual Golf Outing in memory of Chad Bickler from Engineered Security Solutions. Chad was well known in the security industry and everyone who knew him, loved his infectious personality. Chad was honored at the outing by family, friends, co-workers and his security family.
Co-worker Dennis Snider, stood in front of the group and shared how he felt about his friend Chad. “Chad is one of those people I met early on in my life and one of those that is the longest lasting. I was honored to work with him and I was honored to call him my friend, and I was honored to call him a brother.” Snider goes on to say “You might have someone on your staff that was a co-worker, could be a friend. Those people mean so much to you, you need to cherish them. I cherished Chad”
