Jeffrey J. Chadwick

Jeffrey J. Chadwick died Oct. 26, 2019, at Ridgecrest Hospital in California after a long three-year battle with cancer. He was 70 years old.

Jeff was born in Santa Monica in 1949 and spent most of later teenage years working as a deckhand on numerous boats out of the 22nd Street landing in San Pedro, Calif. That was before he started his 37-year career as a steam fitter and pipe welder in several different refineries.

Jeff moved to Trona in 1978 and began contract work for Kerr-McGee Corp. to build the Argus plant where he stayed for 10 years to maintain the plant after its completion.

Jeffrey is survived by his wife Carol Chadwick, sons Corby Chadwick and Wes Chadwick and daughters Kelly Keith and Sara Chadwick.

A celebration of life will be planned at a later date.
