He is also survived by his brother, Mike, and sister-in-law Bonnie, of Erie, PA, his sister-in-law, Denise Knoche, and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was also preceded in death by his elder brother, Rodger.

Chip retired from his job as a Service Representative for Minteq International working primarily at the Edgar Thomson Works in Braddock. 

The family wants to acknowledge the skills of the doctors and nurses of the Cancer Institute at Forbes Regional Hospital in assisting with Chip’s determination to live a full life, years beyond what was projected for him.

There will not be a gathering or service at the funeral home rather, Chip’s desires are for his family to spend time at Jakes Rocks, in Kinzua State Park, PA which he absolutely loved.
