His nieces, nephews, and Uncle John (Genevieve) Leesemann and the Burwinkel family were also near and dear to his heart.

Chip grew up in Montgomery, Ohio and attended All Saints School before going on to graduate from Moeller High School. He had an avid passion for his work as a Manufacturers Representative for Riverside Furniture where he worked for many years.

Chip created countless precious memories at Siesta Key Florida surrounded by his close family. He was known for his love of animals, the Cincinnati Bengals, Cincinnati Reds, and music. More than anything his generous and loving heart. He cherished his family and his friends. Chip always greeted you with his radiating smile and a big hug. He always left you with a big hug and a heart-felt “I love you.” Chip was a friend to everyone who ever met him.

Chip we will all miss you so much that words cannot express, but you will always live in our hearts.
