Childhood and Family Life
Chad grew up on a small farm in the beautiful town in Utah. The hours of hard work and dedication that his upbringing on the farm required have instilled in him a work ethic that drives his actions both in the office and in the home.
Chad is the son of former Utah Congressman K. Gunn McKay, who introduced him to the history of law, taught him about public speaking and legal argument, and inspired him to work hard and live a life full of integrity, faith, and love. The experience, knowledge, and character that Chad received as a young boy have resulted in the caring, skilled, and hard-working Ogden attorney that he is today.
Chad still lives in the beautiful Ogden valley. He is a loving husband and father of 9 children. He loves to spend time with his family doing a wide variety of activities. Some of their favorite activities are horse-related fun (including riding the horses, watering and hauling hay in the summertime), hiking, biking, swimming, and simply spending time together.
