    Chick was a fellow parishioner at St Paul’s during the time our family was growing up. He was always friendly, warm and encouraging. He had a ready smile and was a strong a supporter of this community of faith. He was the kind of person who was easy to remember for his positive influence on those around him. God’s peace to the family.
