Chip and I were good friends for over 20 years. We played and refereed volleyball together for many years. Chip was my first and favorite doubles partner. We spent many weekends playing tournament and enjoying life. In recent years, Chip had gotten back into volleyball by coaching with me for the Northwestern Volleyball Club.

I will miss my friend dearly. He was a good man, a good husband, a good father, and a good friend. Rest in peace!

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. We draw comfort from the scriptures that speak of the resurection, (John 5:28&29) where we can see our lost loved ones again......

I remember Chip as always having a smile on his face. I never remember him saying a bad word about anyone. He was one of those persons that I have never forgotten after these years. My sincere condolences to the family.

Chip and I attended the same high-school back in the mid-seventies. After he graduated in '76 I asked him if he would be interested in joining the softball team I played on. He did, taking over the shortstop and lead-off spots and a "good" team became almost unbeatable. We played several seasons together until he moved from the area and we lost touch. I hadn't seen Chip in many, many years. It's funny how people who disappear from your life seem to freeze in time. They never age. They never fall ill. That's why, in my minds eye, my memories of Chip will forever be that of a young man with boundless energy--on a softball field under the summer sun--running the bases like the wind.

Deepest condolences to Chip's family and friends.

I'm so sorry for your loss Deborah and Colin. May God comfort you both in this very difficult time. It's hard to lose anyone but much more difficult when they are so young. God Bless you

Chip and I played volleyball together at Edinboro State College. I remember Chip as a great teammate and someone who seemed to know everything about the position he played. I have not seen him since those days, but thought of him often and wondered how he was doing. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his passing because he was so full of energy and lived every moment to it's fullest. My sympathy to the family, he will be missed.

All these nice things everyone says about chip are so true. He always had a positive charge in him and this world is a little better off because of his life. He even came out to the farm one time and we played some basketball up in the barn and later a word board game in which he won with the word "quagmire".
