Chase Mitchell Wilson was born August 9, 1998 in Fort Dodge. He attended Riverside Elementary, Fair Oaks and Philips Middle Schools. He currently was a freshman attending Fort Dodge Senior High School. Riding his bike and hanging out with friends were typical for Chase. His dog, "Raider" couldn't get enough of him. When he wasn't hunting or fishing with his dad or eating his beloved mom's cooking, Chase would be playing sports or games; and he was an avid Iowa Hawkeye fan. He loved spending time with his little brothers playing Nerf Guns and had a special bond with his grandma, Barb. Chase loved Harry Potter and Hunger Games book series, loved watching movies and his favorite new show was Duck Dynasty. Chase's smile could melt the world. He will be sadly missed by his Dad, Mom, and Brothers forever; and all who loved him. Chase had a huge heart; he loved his friends and classmates with all his heart.
