I am so sorry for your loss. Chip was a great guy and very good friend at work and away from work. I met Chip when he first came to Lawrence at work, soon after meeting him I found out we were going to be neighbors as well when Jeff and I bought our house. I have many happy memories with Chip from work but mostly for the many bike rides we had together followed by drinks in his garage. He was there for me when Jeff passed away, always looking out for me. He was a dear friend and I will really miss him. RIP my friend. Don't you, Jeff and Brian cause to much trouble up there.
