Michael Chad RaulersonFebruary 22, 1991 ~ May 18, 2017 (age 26)
Michael Chad Raulerson, 26 years of age, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 18, 2017 in Bradford County due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Chad was born on February 22, 1991 to Randy and Shirl Raulerson in Gainesville, FL and was a lifelong resident of Graham, FL. He spent most of his time hunting, fishing and spending time with his family. Raulerson graduated from Bradford High School in 2009. He worked for Jorgenson for 2 1/2 years clearing and performing road maintenance on State Roads.
Chad took much joy in passing on his passion for hunting and love for the outdoors by being a guide/mentor at the NWTF-Gator Gobblers Youth Hunts. He always had a big smile, positive attitude and made sure everyone was having a good time. He was such an inspiration to the youngsters that he was highly requested to be their guide. Chad is surely going to be missed by the young and the old lives that he touched.
Chad was a member of Madison Street Baptist Church in Starke, FL. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to those who needed it; especially when it came to children. While he was attending Madison Street he loved to work in Children's Church helping and guiding them to the Lord. Currently he was attending Life Spring Church in Starke, FL, always lending a hand when needed.
Chad was incredibly passionate and proud of his family and fiance.
Chad is survived by his parents, Randy and Shirl Nash Raulerson of Graham, FL and his fiance, Karra Alday of Keystone Heights, FL. He was loved by many aunts and uncles as well as cousins and friends who were close enough to be family.
A Memorial Service for Chad will be held on Thursday, June 1, 2017 at 2:00 PM at First Baptist Church of Starke with Pastor Scott Crook, Pastor Kenneth Weaver and Pastor Emory Daughtry officiating. Family will receive friends one hour prior at the church.
