Chad Brandon Rothwell

September 24, 1973 ~ December 11, 2018 (age 45)

Chad Brandon “Yankee” Rothwell, 45, of Indianapolis sadly passed away on Tuesday, December 11, 2018.   He was born on September 24, 1973 in Michigan City, Indiana to Charles Rothwell and Judy (Rothwell) Bisson.

Chad was definitely one of a kind. He had a natural ability to light up any room with his animated stories and witty sense of humor. Chad had a big heart and genuinely cared for others.  Even though Chad had his own struggles, his strong faith and knowledge of the bible helped many of his friends. We know that with all of his heart he wanted to be a righteous man and prayed faithfully. A piece of all of our hearts will always belong to him.  

Survivors include his mother, Judy Bisson and her husband, Steve; children, Danielle Rothwell, Dylan Rothwell, Chad Rothwell, Norah Rothwell and Emma Rothwell; siblings, Melanie Vance, Misty Foeks (husband, Rob) and Jimmy Clements; grandchildren, Dylan and Jaxson; and nieces and nephews; Madisen, Leah, Trista, and Ashton Vance. Julia, Kloey, and Levi Foeks.

He was preceded in death by his father, Charles Rothwell and his nephew Seth Vance.
