I first met Chip in the VP office at North Bethesda, Mr. Workman's office to be exact. We were both there for some old-fashioned discipline..Chip asked me to go into Workman's desk to get some late passes. I said are you crazy he is going to be back in a minute. With that he proceeded to go into the guys desk and extracted about 4 pads of notes. He shared them with me and told me if I needed help signing them he could do it for me. I loved that guy from then on. He is missed..

Chip was way ahead of his time in unearthing the secret to a dashing smile. When he flashed that boyish grin of his, I couldn't help but notice his beautiful white teeth! Crest white strips didn't have ANYTHING on him!! He was a great guy with a great spirit. Rest in peace, Chip.

Chip was a saint! He had all the Greek virtues plus a little of the devil in him. No pretenses with him: Chip was real! It was a thrill playing on the same team with Chip and seeing him break lose for a gain of 8 on the dusty gridiron at WJ. He was emblematic of our undersized Spartans with the heart of a lion.

Look up 'charisma' in Webster's and if you look closely, you'll see Chip's face!

So often true that the good die young...

He had me at hello - the night I met Chip (in 10th grade) is one night I will never forget. Since that night there was always a connection between us - even if we weren't together. His life ended way too early - I know there was a lot more he wanted to accomplish. But in his short life, Chip did so much, and made so many people happy. Our 8 1/2 years of marriage was truly a dream come true for me. I miss him and know that we will see each other again.
