    I first met Chip in the Crank Arm night rides. He was very friendly, easily approachable to talk with and always had some cycling tips/stories to share. I would see his updates on Strava and saw his photography shared there. Very thankful to have known...  more

    I met Chip back in 1992 when we became neighbors, and I have many fond memories of him at parties, get togethers, hikes, etc. His obvious intelligence was so impressive, and I was always entertained by his sense of humor. He had a dry wit and was a great...  more

    I had the privilege of working with Chip many years ago during the first few years of my career when I had just moved to Raleigh. I was awkward and homesick; and Chip seemed to intuitively know that I needed some guidance and friendship. He was...  more

      Sharyn Fuller My husband Larry and Chip spent much time together at parties. Larry really enjoyed Chip's sense of humor. They spent at least a few New Year's Eves together watching the sun rise on the new year.

      Sharyn Fuller Taken in 1993 - we were hiking in Umstead State Park and came to a place where, if we wanted to go any further, we had to walk across a log that had fallen over a stream. The children were unable to do that so Chip carried them one by one on his back....  more

    I was fortunate to work with Chip early in our careers at TTC and later at W&G. He was always ready with a quip to make those around him laugh. He was just a joy to work with, always kind and encouraging. The world needs more people like Chip, and...  more

    I always enjoyed riding with Chip at the Crank Arm Rides. He was always pleasure to have a beer with while chatting about bikes and life. It wont be the same without him.

    I worked with Chip back in the late 90's, a we kept in touch ever since. We talked easily and shared many values. I'm deeply troubled someone decided to steal him away from us. We talked 1-2 times per year to stay in touch. My wife and I...  more

      John Lofgren Father God, be with Chip's family to console and heal from this tragic loss. We know it is not your work, God, is it the work of evil and of hate. Thank you God for giving us Chip as a friend, father, and co-worker, we were all better for knowing him....  more

    Chip was a great coach and a true friend since I met him as a high school ultimate player and into my adult life. I will miss looking for him cycling around Umstead and how we would cross paths every year or so. As our coach, Chip led our team to be kind...  more

    I worked with Chip every single day for eight years at two different companies and a few special projects. During that time Chip and I got to where we could finish each others sentences and Chip made me laugh harder than anyone can make me laugh. I...  more

    I am so lucky to have gotten to meet and work with Chip and to have him become a great friend and confidante. It was always so easy to fall into great conversations with him and have him be my own personal coach, which I know he was to so many. Chip...  more

    Always enjoyed our time we spent together as kids but especially his visits to Alaska the last few years. He helped me discover things I’d not done despite living here many years. Was very proud of his friendships and family. We are the better for...  more
