No cause of death has been made public, but according to reports, he was diagnosed with bacterial endocarditis from a staph infection in his bloodstream and he had undergone a series of surgery before his death.

College Station ISD Education Foundation mourned the “unexpected passing” of a veteran AMCHS teacher, Chad Cryer on their Facebook page.

“So sad to hear about the passing of AMCHS teacher, Chad Cryer. He had been a staple at the Hall of Fame Banquet in recent years as an Honored Educator. He left quite a mark on College Station I.S.D. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Cryer family and Tiger family.”

Chad Cryer was born in Bryan, Texas. He taught at Bryan High School for over 14 years. Since 2019, he has also taught at A&M Consol. Since 2018, he has been an APUS History Teacher and a valued member of the Tiger family. Cryer was named the 2021 Consol Teacher of the Year, the 2021 Consol Graduation Speaker, the 2020 CSISD Hall of Fame Honored Educator, and the 2021 Hall of Fame Honored Educator. For the past 17 years, he has worked as a teacher.

Hugo Ibarra, a friend and brother to Chad Cryer also confirmed the news to InsideEko media on his Facebook page.

“Not long ago I heard someone talk about ‘the better man. Didn’t pay much attention. Last night I learned that Chad Cryer, husband, father, friend, Bryan HS teacher for 14 years and A&M Consol teacher since 2019 passed away. If you met Mr Cryer, you’d probably agree with me that he was one of ‘the better men’ out there. If he was still around and heard this comment, he might have followed up with a series of challenging questions as a legitimate and purposeful effort to make sure I/we understood our past, present and future realities and trigger the possibility of making them better. Thank you, Mr Cryer. Prayers for his wife, children, and family.”

Chad was just a great person. Great coach. Great teacher. Great father. Very direct and smart with a really good sense of humour. He is definitely the type of person that you should want to be like.

The family will release an obituary and funeral arrangements for Chad Cryer.
