Cary Chiappone Obituary
Cary Dwight Chiappone Cary Chiappone died peacefully at home on October 13, 2010 surrounded by family and friends after a year-long courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 38 years old. Cary was born in Berkeley on April 28, 1972 to Susan and Robert Chiappone. Growing up in Lafayette, he attended Acalanes High School where he excelled in academics and was a three- sport letterman in water polo, swimming and basketball. Cary graduated from UC Berkeley in 1994 with a degree in history. While there he lettered in water polo and was a member of the Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity. After college, Cary was hired by Charles Schwab as a securities trader, which eventually took him to New York. He returned to the Bay Area in 1999 as an equities trader with Nationsbanc Montgomery Securities, later Bank of America Securities. He finished his career with Merriman Curhan & Ford in San Francisco as Senior VP of Trading. In 2004 Cary married Dana Wentworth, with whom he had two beautiful children, Bianca and Max. They adored his funny, playful manner and his love of laughter. Cary was a scratch golfer and played as much as his wife would let him. Lucky for him, that was quite often and it paid off in 2008 when he won the championship at Moraga Country Club. Cary is survived by his wife Dana Wentworth Chiappone and children Bianca and Max; his mother Sue Chiappone Miller and her husband Bob; his siblings Tracy Chiappone, Chris Chiappone and his wife Ann, Craig Chiappone and his wife Nana and a large, loving extended family. He is preceded in death by his father Dr. Robert Chiappone and his grandparents Carlo and Clotilda Chiappone and Paul and Marianne Crowder. Cary was a wonderful son, brother, husband, father and friend who is missed by all who knew him. The family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Margaret Tempero, Dr. B.J. Miller and their teams at UCSF, as well as Elizabeth Dito, RN, and the Infusion Center Nurses. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to the Cary Chiappone Memorial Fund, UCSF Foundation, P.O. Box 45339 San Francisco CA 94145-0339. A celebration of his life will take place on Friday, January 28th between the hours of 2 & 6pm at Orinda Country Club.
