Condolence: Words can not express how much you will be MISSED. You were such a positive mentor to our students and I can't imagine a school year without you in the Academy, since we worked together for more than a decade. Each day I knew I could count on you to make me laugh with your quick wit. You have also raised 3 beautiful children and were such a PROUD DAD always sharing stories of their successes and accomplishments.
Rest In Peace my friend.

Condolence: Chip,
You were one of two teachers who truly helped me through my last semester of High School seven years ago. My anxiety and depression were at its peak that year. I was beyond thankful to have a teacher that was kind, caring and understanding. You were really one of a kind!! My condolences go out to your family and especially your children. It will not be easy but they will get through this in time. Although you will not physically be back to work this September, you will still be there watching over those kids and co-workers. I just know it. For the record, I'm now a teachers assistant in a local school building and have recently started my own event planning company. You had a great deal to do with that whether you knew it or not. Rest peacefully Chip.

Condolence: Chip,
I only had the honor of knowing you for two short years as I worked with you on technology integration and your personal goal of being the best teacher you could be for your students. You always met me with a smile and had your students best interests at heart. I will miss how our chats wandered off into various topics but always got back to your students. The world needs more teachers like you, not less....
I will miss you but blessed to have your memories to encourage me to be the best that I can be every day.
God Bless You Chip,

Condolence: Dear, dear Chip,

To say I'll miss you is an understatement. We have worked together for the past twelve years, and I can't imagine September without you. Your dedication to our students can't be replaced. Your commitment to our team went above and beyond every day. I will miss your smile, our conversations, and hearing you speak proudly of Jordan, Brenden and Samantha. I am blessed and forever grateful to have worked with you all these years. Rest peacefully, my dear friend.

Condolence: My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Chip was a very smart and funny guy in high school. We were in jazz band and marching band together. He was always ready with a witty, funny line when one was needed. In recent years, I also noticed how on FB how much he expressed love and pride in his family. God Bless.

Condolence: Oh, Chip. You will be missed by so many, and you will be remembered by so many.

Your impact on people - young and old alike - will always be remembered, and will continue to be an inspiration to us all. You done good. AMF.

Condolence: Chip was one of those people everyone liked, no matter what "group" they were in or whether or not they knew him well. He treated everyone the same, with warmth, kindness, and cheer - everyone liked him, and we always will.
