Austin “Chad” Wieland, 24, of Lubbock passed away on Wednesday, March 31, 2021. He was born June 20, 1996 in Lubbock. Chad grew up in Lubbock, but later graduated from Kress High School and continued on to South Plains College. After settling in Lubbock, he began working for CVI Funeral Supply where he served the surrounding funeral homes.
Chad was full of life and kept his family on their toes. He lived on the edge and was always determined to do what he had put his mind to. People remember Chad for his charismatic and welcoming smile. Chad loved fishing, spending time with his friends, and polishing up his truck. He never met a stranger.
Those left to cherish his memory are his parents, Melanie Rice and husband, David of Amarillo and Kevin Wieland of Lubbock; siblings, Kyle Wieland of Lubbock, Whitney Green and husband Wade of Hudson, Wisconsin, Lara Rice, John David Rice and Lana Rice, all of Amarillo; fiancé, Morgan Conley of Lubbock and their unborn child; and grandparents, Bob Coleman of Burnet, and Wayne and Letha Rice of Plainview. Chad also leaves behind many aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends.
Chad was preceded in death by his grandparents, Willa Coleman and James and Carolyn Wieland; his sister, Haylee Wieland; and his nephew, Simcha Green.
The family will be receiving friends from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at the Venue on Broadway, 2202 Broadway Street Lubbock, Texas 79401. Graveside services are scheduled for 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, April 7, 2021 at the Kress Cemetery.
