Chase Hunter Kennicker was born in Yakima Washington on October 18, 2002 to Donald and Linda Kennicker. He was the youngest child out of 9 children. 

Chase was a happy child, starting at a young age he loved to laugh and make others laugh with his crazy antics. He and his siblings and mom lived in Texas, Wisconsin and finally settled in Myton, Utah in 2007.

Chase played many sports including baseball, soccer, basketball, pickleball, golf, wrestling, flag football, tackle football, track and field and mountain biking. Chase was a good athlete who lettered in Wrestling, Track and field and Mountain Biking. He also tried out and made the Men's Choir in 10th grade and enjoyed participating with this group. The group placed at state, and he wore the pin with pride.

After Graduation he moved to Salt Lake City where he lived with his Mom Linda, while preparing to enter Job Corp. While in SLC he worked at Burger King.
