My sincere condolences for your loss. As a lifelong friend of his grandson, Matt, I had the honor and privilege of knowing “Grandpa Chipps” for many years. His stories were truly fascinating and he always made us laugh. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Dean, Tom and families. I am so sorry to hear of Dales passing. I just spent time talking to him at the school reunion in July. Always a smile, a quick wit and a great mind. When he saw me he said "hey didn't you move to Huntington", and I responded, "yes in 1965". We had a great laugh and we talked about your mom and when they were first married and lived across from the Isner farm. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. He will be missed by all.

Tom, Dean and family, I am sorry to hear about Dale. We will greatly miss his friendship and the wonderful stories. Camp will never be the same without Dale's unselfish work to make sure everyone's needs were met. There are so many wonderful memories of your Dad, I hope they will help you through your grief.
