I have known Chip all my childhood and can’t imagine not having him here. He was my big brother, always here for me. I always knew if I needed anything he would be there! I will forever be missing him, but know inside there are only good memories of him. Kids, teens, then adulting brings so many experiences . I always imagined us growing old together too. There will only be a few people in my life that will ever match up to him. Like watching it’s a wonderful life, our world wouldn’t have been the same without him. I hope he knew how much he mattered.

I have fond memories of spending time at Lake Shafer with Chip. We enjoyed fishing, cooking out, being out on the pontoon, and going to Indiana Beach. I also remember going to his home growing up and hanging out. He will be dearly missed.
