Chase Joseph Dinkel

September 24th, 2004 - March 26th, 2024

Chase was born on September 24, 2004 in Fort Collins to Amber Trent and Andrew Dinkel. Chase was raised in the Fort Collins and Loveland areas. He attended school at O’Dea Elementary, Boltz Junior High, Bill Reed Middle School, and Thompson Valley High School. 

Chase loved anything adventurous and he loved to be outdoors. He had a love for camping, fishing, and being in the mountains. His favorite places to be in the mountains were Ranger Lakes and Lake John.  Chase also enjoyed skateboarding, hanging out with his friends and family, going on cruises, and playing his video games. Chase also enjoyed being with his dog Roscoe, catching and holding snakes, frogs, any other bug or reptile he could find. He had a very rough and tough exterior, but inside Chase had a heart of gold. He would always help anyone in need if he was able and he would give the shirt off his back if it was needed. Chase loved his friends so much and he loved his family dearly. 

Chase was known by many nicknames, but the top ones were Racecar, Dinkelberg, Pinkle, and Butterfly Boy. Chase and his older brother were talking about Chase wanting to be a rapper and Killian asked him what his name would be and he said “I don’t know. Call me Crackerjack! No actually call me Wheat Thins!” He had a very humorous side to him and always made you laugh and cracked jokes. 

Chase is survived by: mom Amber Trent/John Drieth of Loveland; dad Andrew Dinkel of Fort Collins; sister Ashley (Chris) Almazan of Evans; brother Killian (Brandi) Seerley of Fort Collins; grandmother Barbara Dinkel of Fort Collins; grandparents Ron and Jessie Trent of Evans; Aunt Roberta (Kenny) Dinkel-Eddins of Fort Collins; Aunt Jody (Bill) Tappan of Fort Collins; Uncle Ronald (Robin) Trent of Pennsylvania; Uncle Harold (Mirna) Trent of Greeley; Uncle Shayn (Patty) Estell of Kentucky; Aunt Kristi Wilson of Fort Collins; five step siblings, three nieces, several cousins, and many friends. He is preceeded in death by his paternal grandfather Wilbert Dinkel.

You are on to your next adventure kid! Chase, go ride your skateboard, write and sing your rap songs, throw the ball for B dog, and tear up that asphalt in your dream car. Save a spot for us! We miss you so much and love you to the moon and back kid!

Chase had such a positive impact in my life, when I absolutely had nobody to turn to chase was always there regardless of my actions and I’ll always remember him as a brother. He was funny all the time even when he was just being goofy, he was intelligent and so so incredibly kind. He was one of the most loving and caring people to the point to where he would put himself in positions he didn’t want to be in just to make someone else happy. I remember spending countless nights hanging out with chase and playing games, driving around and going out to eat, we had plans of building cars together, he’d ask me for life advice almost everyday and he’d always try to include me in whatever he was doing I cry so hard watching your YouTube videos and watching the clips of us together on games and Videos of us in real life, I never thought this would ever happen to you bud we had a friendship I will miss forever until I get to chill with you again brother Love you homie

This kid made such an impact... spending so much time with him when I did I learned just how goofy, talented, and determined he was... there was a time he was scared to try a skate trick and we all sat there encouraging him until he tried, it took him almost 3 tries to get it almost right. (our group was always skating or hanging out everyday at the time) I love that we could encourage him like that... he always made us laugh with his goofy voices and sayings... him and Mason were always on the same barn wave, making the same voices together all the time... I loved when I got to show him a song that he ended up liking, or when the others were skating off and him and I were just chilling because he was tired from skating or something... we'd make jokes and laugh while we sat there... he'd let me steal his hat and steal his bored to try to skate...there was a time in my room where he didn't get much sleep and ended up sleeping as we were all hanging out, so we drew all over him and he woke up and smiled... he smiled about it and we all encouraged him because it actually kind of looked good..lol.. going on drives with the music blaring... hanging out super late or trying to decide if we will meet up with him and Mason at my house, Travis' or mason's...(it was always chase and mason...) I remember when he was so excited to show Travis and I his little car, so when we dropped him home one day we stayed just to look at it... he was so excited and proud... ill forever hold onto these memories.. and more... I can't believe he is gone...

Chase was something so special, never met a kid like him. He was this star that lit up my whole world. He was real about everything and so so stubborn when his mind was set on something, but the most sweetest heart that man had, he was never not there, he was never selfish, he would do anything for anybody when he didn’t need to. He’d come to my work every single day I worked and would just sit there for hours so we could talk every chance I could, he’d be there the second I went on my break so we could be together, stay till I got off even if he wasn’t taking me home, he was always there in every way possible. There was so much knowledge in his head it was unbelievable sometimes, he was so special. He always understood me like no one else can, I could write books about my feelings for him and who that man actually was, but I won’t. His soul was so beautiful and full, he deserved the world. All the memories and words will never disappear. I miss you. In another life my boy.

When was a time Chase made you laugh?

Chase made me laugh everytime we would speak. That laugh that could fill up a room. When I would make a joke and he would hit me with the f*** you Roman. What would give to even hear those words again. I remember I picked him up one time and we went to our friend weezys(sadly he passed away too) and we were just sitting there drinking and he said something that changed me. He said Roman why are you always here for me. And for lack of better words at the time I said because your my little brother and that’s what family is for. But now I wanna say it’s because you made me into a better person. You were there for me when I had nobody. You taught me a smile is always better than a frown. You taught me that even when other people are for lack of a better word rude to you that you don’t have to do that and you can kill them with kindness. I’m gonna miss you brother and I’ll always carry you with me I love you Fly High Chase 🕊️💙
