Chad was a native of Shreveport, LA. He graduated from Episcopal High School in Baton Rouge and LSU Baton Rouge where he was a member of Sigma Chi Fraternity and Campus Crusade for Christ. He continued his education attending LSU Health Sciences Center – Shreveport where he obtained his doctorate of Medicine and completed his Internal Medicine and Pediatrics Residency and Hematology and Oncology fellowship where he was a member of Alpha Omega Alpha. He was a member of First United Methodist Church-Cornerstone Class, where he was actively involved, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Young Life, the , and the Shreveport Little League Board. He served on the Student Advising Committee at LSU-HSC. Chad's favorite past time was without a doubt being with his family. Chad loved coaching every sport for his three boys. Any chance he had at home was spent playing football, basketball, or baseball in his yard with his wife and children, the High Five as he liked to call them. Anywhere they wanted to go, he made it happen. LSU football games, Texas Rangers games, and of course the place he rested the best, Lake Ouachita. Chad was never a bystander. He was always "all in". He worked the score board at every basketball game and the chains at every football game. He coached from the dugout as well as the sidelines for every child on the team. He led father-son Bible Study at 6 am for years. From hunting with his boys to marshmallow man on the floor at home, he loved being a husband and father. His next greatest passion was his work. He loved every patient and it was evident by the time he spent with them. Never did he turn away a phone call from a patient or colleague. He prayed with his patients and for his patients. He climbed in bed with them and loved on them. He always said he learned more from them than he could ever give. What was important to Chad? Whatever was important to you, his friend. He never met a stranger and whenever Chad saw someone in need, it was his pleasure to provide for that need. He loved bigger and more generous than any man has. Dr. Hargon was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles S. Hargon and maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Terkuhle. He is survived by his wife, Stacey Free Hargon; parents, Lousie and Charles Geron "Gee Gee" Hargon, of Baton Rouge; three sons, Charles Geron Hargon III, Christopher Guy Hargon and Grayson Paul Hargon; sister, Shadley Hargon Gordon and husband, Bobby, of Swickley, PA and their children, Alex, Elsa and Mary Grace; sister-in-law, Ronda Trawick and husband, Steen and their children, Allison Grace and Graham; and father and mother-in-law, Margaret and Ronald Free.
