Share a special moment from Chip's life.

There is little to say that has not already been said.  Chip was a friend and colleague. We taught together and played together for many years. So, I will leave you with a line from the song, "Jock Stewart"--one we sang together many times over the years.  "He's a man you don't meet everyday". Be easy and free now my friend.

A Local Legend

I've known Chip for a good number of years 
as one of the many talented musicians I've had
the honor to have him swing on by and do a
song or two at my sidewalk performances,
as well as at a benefit event back in August 2015,
performing covers of THe ByRDS rendition 
of Bob Dylan's folk-pop standards,
"Mr. Tambourine Man" and "My Back Pages".

Not only he's played in groups such as the Wild Abandon
and The Sleeping Child Band, but also jammed with other
fellow music stars (including Eric Hutchins of The Joan-Zen).
Chip has earned his honor as a legend with his
music and stories shared to the young and young-at-heart.

Although he has answered Great Spirit's call to the Afterlife's
big stage, reuniting with his wife/soulmate Amy
as well as other local musicians who went before us
(including Clem Small, Jean Mathews, Sue Comeau, Jim Hayes, and others),
his music, legacy, and spirit shall forever live on, and we will see Chip
again when we answer Creator's call to go to the Spirit World....

He was such a wonderful soul. He impacted so many lives. Words cannot describe this huge loss. He also raised a wonderful and kind hearted son. His teachings were not just music, but love, kindness, and respect. Cove I am so sorry for your loss. He lives on through you.
