We are so sorry for your loss Betty! I was glad I was able to come home and get to say goodbye to him. When he told me about the cancer in September, I was for sure he was going to beat it... he is a tough guy! Chip was like a grandfather to me, growing up across the street and then right next door to you both has been an absolute pleasure and will never forget the memories I had with not only him, but both of you! The thing I will miss most about Chip is his sarcastic sense of humor (I think I picked up some of mine from him), his non-stop teasing, but most of all I will miss getting the pleasure of talking with him when I was home for the weekend!! I am sorry to say we will not be able to make it to the funeral, but I am very thankful I got to say my goodbyes just a few days prior. Take care Betty and if you need anything at all, call my parents and I will be happy to help you with anything when I am home! Until we meet again, Chip!!! Love you and miss you!!

I'm so fortunate to have married into the family and gain an Uncle as wonderful as Uncle Chip! I know who made him the man he was and she is forever the most wonderful Aunt in the whole wide world! Uncle Chip took every opportunity to heckle you poke at you and make you laugh and all the while coming out looking good. He always took the time to embrace a conversation with me and compliment himself while he was making me think he was going to compliment me! Haha Honestly he loved with a big fun heart and pitched right in and helped whatever was needed. I loved how he engaged in all our children's lives. He is greatly missed! I look forward to spending the future with him in heaven and enjoying all God has to show us throughout eternity!!!

What I am going to miss most about Uncle Chip is his good-natured teasing, there was no one that wasn't a target of his ribbing, but it made you feel special! I will miss the way that Chip never met a stranger, he could strike up a conversation and make new friends where ever he went.
I will also miss seeing Aunt Betty and him together! Together this dynamic duo was truly one of Ridgway's power couples, that had the power to befriend and care for whoever God put in their path! We are going to miss you Chip, we are coming to the realization again, that life is too short, life is a vapor, so we look forward to seeing you in the future in our permanent home!
