Father of Robbin Milici-Ashenfelter, Christopher Rudolph and Michael Damiani. Brother of Sandra Rearden and Carol Ann Damiani Ericson. Grandfather of Dylan Andreas and Giuliana Grey Damiani. Chip was born in Waterbury June 16, 1945 to Rudolph and Jeanette Long Damiani. He was most recently the President of Airtite Home Improvement, Inc. Chip was the well known and respected drummer for the 1960’s rock band the Remains. Formed in 1964 in Boston, while the band members were students at Boston University, they were eventually recognized as one of America’s finest hard rock bands. Fabled heroes in their home town of Boston, the Remains appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show, and are best known for being one of the opening acts for the Beatles’ final US tour in 1966. Thirty two years later, in 1998, the band reunited for a European tour which led to a permanent reunion in 2002. They were the subject of a 2004 off-Broadway musical (“All Good Things”) and a 2008 documentary, “America’s Lost Band.” Visiting hours will be Thursday from 4–8pm. at the IOVANNE FUNERAL HOME, INC. 11 Wooster Pl.
