Not sure what to say?

I was so sorry to learn of Chip's passing. He was a dear friend to me and my family. God bless his family. He will truly be missed.

Learning of Chip's death saddens us greatly. Although gone from Roanoke now for 25 years, we have vivid and fond memories of Chip and know that he was a man who made his family and his community proud....and we were proud to know him.

Chip was a great advocate for the arts and education non-profits in Roanoke, and saved us more than once during budget cuts. He also actually came to our events and performances and exhibitions with Emily. We share the loss of a great man with his wonderful family, and send our love.

Chip leaves a profound and remarkable legacy of goodwill and accomplishment for his beloved Roanoke Valley, the Commonwealth and all whose lives he graciously touched. Well done thy good and faithful servant.

I knew Chip from, of all places, summer league adult soccer in Roanoke, summer of '78. He wasn't much of a soccer player, truth be told, but nobody had more fun than Chip, and nobody CAUSED more fun than Chip. I still remember that he scored one goal that season; the ball actually bounced off his crotch (rather than having been kicked) and went straight into the net. A great time was had by all in celebration of THAT goal! Great guy; sorry to see him go.

We share the loss of a great individual, Friend and and a faithful member of our Board of Directors. Chip, we appreciate the contributions you made to our Community as you have left a void that will be impossible to replace.

Emily and Family,
Henry and I send our condolences on the passing of an old friend who never failed to brighten a room with his wit. We are thinking of you.

Emily: Just read about Chip and wanted you to know how sorry Bill and I are. We will keep you and your family in our prayers. We do appreciate all the work Chip did for the state and the community. He will be sadly missed. JERRY & BILL STOTT
