Chad Gregory Peery

EDMOND —     Officer Chad Gregory Peery died April 15, 2013. He was born December 6, 1976 in Oklahoma City, Okla., and graduated from Mount St. Mary High School, Oklahoma City and Northeastern State University, Tahlequah, Okla.

    Chad started his career as a financial advisor for Edward Jones in Stigler, Okla. During this time, Chad began working as a Haskell County Volunteer Reserve Officer in his spare time. Later, Chad became the Chief Finance Officer for the State Health Clinic in Stigler and continued with his volunteer work.

    Chad followed his true calling to serve the community when he graduated from the Oklahoma City Police Academy in 2008. He performed at a very high level until he was injured in the line of duty in 2011. The events of his life since the incident have been well documented and admired by all who followed his accomplishments. Even in death Chad continued to help others by being an organ donor. Chad was an extraordinary father, son, brother, officer, and friend as well as an inspiration to all who knew him.
