Donald Chase Tasker, age 18 of East Grand Rapids was taken peacefully from all who loved him on March 8th, 2020. Chase was born on April 13th, 2001 in Grand Rapids to his loving parents Anne and Tom Tasker.
Chase attended East Grand Rapids Public Schools K-12 and will forever be remembered as a member of the class of 2020. Chase enjoyed basketball, golf, and fishing. When faced with physical challenges he never quit living life. He would attend every football game, as a shirted player, rain or shine to support his school. He was also the basketball teams #1 fan. In 2019, Chase attended the Masters where he was able to meet his favorite player Jordan Speith.
Chase never failed to make those around him smile. He had a gift to lift others up with his one-liners and quick wit. Chase shared a love of the University of Michigan with his brothers Tanner and Harrison (Bear). They watched and attended many games over the years.
In his final hours he was able to tell his family that he loved them and was ready to go to heaven. He was surrounded by family and friends and was at peace knowing that his twin brother and best friend Harrison (Bear), brother Tanner, and parents Anne & Tom were going to be ok without him.
Chase is survived by his loving parents Anne & Tom, brothers and best friends Tanner & Harrison (Bear), grandparents Mary & David Stickney, grandmother Carol Tasker, aunt and uncle Jon & Sarah Stickney. Chase will join grandfather Donald Tasker who he was named after in heaven, along with uncle John Tasker.
He will be deeply missed by all.
