I have no family other than the one I’ve created and my father. It is my own fault for not keeping in touch Uncle Chip but please know that I always had fond memories and thoughts of you. My dad and I have shared some funny stories about you with my daughter Ashlan. Give Caleb a hug from me and tell Grandpa I said to take care of Ari, he will do a great job! I love you Uncle Chip.

To Marcia, Vincent, Vicky and Debbie. Saddened by our loss but Chip was and will remain a very funny, kind, gifted and frankly cute cousin.

My dad always told me if I had been a boy, he would have named me Charles in honor of Chip’s father. So to you my cousin - lucky for you I was a girl else who knows what your name might have been?

And yes, still remember the incredible home grown goodness you and Marcia shared!

We never had a big family to begin with – so your loss is felt more than you know.

Bye cousin.

My Grandfather was an awesome man, anyone named after him sure would be lucky!

I am very saddened to read of Chip’s death. I worked with him at HPC for several years and appreciated the dedication and kindness he always showed to our patients. He was a very soft spoken, gentle man who worked hard to make sure everyone stayed safe. I remember him coming into work to pick up his paycheck on his day off. He often brought his then little boy in with him, he was so proud of him and introduced him to whoever was around. I especially loved running into him at Wegmans a few years ago after he’d retired; he was a happy man.
Thanks for always looking out for us Chip.

I met Chip in the 8th grade, he was a year ahead of me. We shared many adventures, including moving into a flat with our friend Joe on Madison Street just down the hill from Thornden Park in '79. It was our first place away from our family homes, and we made the most of it! Chip was a good man, a loyal friend, and a kind soul. I am a better man for having known him, and the world is a better place for the blessing of his being. Love you man, miss you dearly - Dave Doran
