Kelly Chase Madsen, 26, passed away Feb. 5, 2020, in Provo. He was born May 22, 1993, in Richfield, a son of Robert Kelly and Kathryn Bishop Madsen.
He graduated from the Granite School District in 2009. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He worked putting up drywall in home construction.
Chase enjoyed fishing, hiking and tattooing.
Chase was a very tenderhearted, free-spirited young man. Even as a small boy, he didn’t want to be held back by boundaries. He wanted to bring every stray animal home, because he thought they were cold, hungry or lonely. Even when his mom didn’t agree, more often than not, he managed to sneak them home. He was a very good artist and drew a special birthday card for all his family members. He was also a very talented tattoo artist. He had a special love in his heart for his friends, as well as his family. He was always willing to help anyone in need. He had a great love for all of his kids, the love of his life, Tangie, and he will be greatly missed by everyone.
He is survived by his mother, Kathryn Barker, Richfield; father, Kelly Madsen, Annabella; children, Ryder, Peyton, Olive, Jax and Tiara; sisters and brother, Lexi Madsen, Richfield; Lacy Davis, Central Valley; and Laramy and Shilo Madsen, Annabella; nieces and nephews, Kailee Anderson, Kenna Anderson, Isabella Davis, Swayze Davis and Kynlee Madsen; grandmother, Kaye Brunson, Richfield; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Sandra Bishop and Robert N. Madsen; nephew, Brink Madsen; and great-grandmother, Alma J. Ogden.
