Chip lost his battle with lung cancer at home in Edina, Minn., Oct. 29, 2004. To paraphrase the words of John Milton, "We are the lesser for the loss, but the richer for having known Chip."
Chip graduated from Springfield [Vt.] High School as an all-star football player and came to Princeton, where he received a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering. He was a member of Tiger Inn, where his warm sense of humor was ever-present.
In 1963, Chip and Dick Bolander created the "Halftime Runners" ‚€” heroes dressed in orange and black always vanquishing the opposition ‚€” much to the amusement of the fans. After Princeton, Chip worked in the high-tech field in the Boston area. In 1979, Chip and wife Andy moved to Santa Barbara, where they fell in love with California. They moved to Minneapolis in 1998 when Chip became an executive director with Seagate Technologies, but the dreams were always in California.
Chip served on Princeton's local school committees and participated in alumni fund-raising activities. He brought to Reunions the spirit of good times remembered. In 2002, Chip received an MBA from the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis.
Chip leaves behind Andy, his wife of 34 years; children Missy '96 and Brian; and brother Edward. We join the family in mourning his passing and celebrating his life.
