Chad Dale Fountain

MOUNT PLEASANT- Chad Dale Fountain, 49, of Mount Pleasant, died unexpectedly on Saturday, March 16, 2024, at his home. Gozer Fountain is sad to announce the departure of his master.

Chad was born June 18, 1974, in Mount Pleasant, the son of Pat and Barb (Burich) Fountain. He graduated from Mount Pleasant High School in 1992. Dressing up and performing as a clown was one of his greatest passions, which he was able to do while working at a gas station. Chad loved to make people laugh. He was an avid Hawkeye fan, especially of Caitlin Clark, and also the Colorado Avalanche hockey team. Chad and his dog Gozer tried out twice for America’s Got Talent.

Chad is survived by his mom Barb of Mount Pleasant; siblings: Debi (John) Shalla of Riverside, Kevin of Iowa City, David of Iowa City, and Todd of St. Peter’s, MO; nieces and nephews Christopher, Tiffany, Ashlee, Travis, Trenton, Patrick, Jared, Emma; two great nieces Jurzie and Skylin; and his faithful dog, Gozer. He is also survived by many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his dad Pat in 2006, and his grandparents. 

A Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, March 24, 2024, from 2-4 p.m. at the Mount Pleasant VFW, 103 S Jackson St. A memorial fund has been established for All God’s Creatures. Olson-Powell Chapel & Crematory is caring for Chad and his family.
