    I am so sad to see that Chip has passed. He was my boss when I worked at Wildwood. I had great respect for him. He definitely could make me laugh. I loved when Chip and Walter (Chip’s long time co worker ) would tell stories of their bar shift antics from earlier years. One of the stories was about how Chip meet his wife (Mel). It was quite a love story. My heart breaks for his family. Saying prayers for everyone.


    It was pleasure for me Peter, Deborah Chloe & Dylan to know Chip from time we all met in Mexico in 2008, since then we have created some lovely fund memories when visiting from UK, we had great happy times, we will miss sitting out the porch with you, you will be sadly missed by all of us RIP & god bless Deborah, Peter, Chloe & Dylan.
