As the daughter of one of those 1947 Mad Magicians, I have always been so impressed by the bond established between those teammates - it was always about the team, not about the individuals. I loved the stories from their five year reunions where countless plays in that '47 season were relived and reevaluated (Chap often the star). On so many occasions, Bob Chappuis could have claimed a lot of the limelight and the credit for their many accomplishments, but he did not. Instead, as a team, they felt the pride of achieving something greater than the sum of its parts. Hats off to Bob for setting a standard of behavior for them and for all of us. He leaves a gaping hole of talent, dignity and humility. I hope he and Dad continue those conversations in heaven. Lynn Yerges Buhl

missed.Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My dad talks a lot about his fraternity days at the Phi Delt House and most, if not all his memories involve "Chap". I can't begin to tell you how many times I heard his name mentioned. He will be missed by many.
