Ralph, you were the best neighbor ever, always helping everyone, always smiling as you walked by or worked in your yard. You were the first man I knew who did the dishes, you were a great father to my best friend, you and Doris were like my second parents, and it was always so nice to see how a couple married so long still enjoyed each others company and were so loving to one another. I am lucky to have known you and I only wished you could have stayed with us longer. Thank you for all that you did for me, you were a great friend and I will miss you always.

Our deepest sympathy to the Chipman family. Ralph was a classmate of FHS '53
I loved my Uncle Ralph, he was such a good good man. My heart goes out to Aunt Doris, Debbie, Kenny, and Aunt Betty, and everyone else whose lives he touched. He showed me my very first remote control when I was a little girl I thought that thing was something else. Sitting on the sofa changing the channels. I don't know why that sticks out in my mind but it does. We are all going to miss you dearly Uncle Ralph. RIP.

To the Chipman Family,
This is such a huge shock! We will miss seeing Ralph on his morning walks. We could always tell the time when we saw him walk by our house every morning. The dogs always barked hello to him too. Ralph was always friendly and cheerful. Several years ago when my dogs were puppies,and they escaped through the front door, he lassoed the two of them and brought them to my door! That moment was such a relief. I remember realizing then that he was the man who went for a walk every morning, and a wonderful neighbor as well! God bless to your family. We will all miss him.

Eventhough I didnt know Ralph, I used to see him everyday on his walks. My dog absolutely loved him. From the first time my dog came in contact with him,his tail wagged and he would almost cry, pulling so hard to get to Ralph. That speaks volumes to the type of person I can only imagine he was. My deepest sympathy to the Chipman Family. We will take a walk around Cushing in his honor..
Ralph was a great man and will be missed by all. I will miss those family gatherings; he was one that always brought a smile and laughter into the room. My love goes out to his family during this time.
With all my love,
Dear Doris, I was so sad to hear of Ralph's passing. You may not remember me, but you loaned me your beautiful wedding dress 53 years ago in Feb. I worked with you at Jordan Marsh. I see that you had a long and loving marriage just like John & I. God bless you & your family. Judi Waite D'Allessandro
To Ken and Family,
Peace to All
Ralph was always such a bright spot around our neighborhood, always cheerful, always willing to lend a hand to help. He will be sorely missed.
Doris, we sadly share our condolences.
Leila & Dave Mercer
