Chip A. Wilson, age 38, passed away at his home surrounded by his loving family and friends on Monday, August 14th, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer.  He was a fighter and did not give up easily but god saw him getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around him and whispered “Come To Me”.

He attended Maysville High School, Class of 1998.  Chip was a great athlete and well-known football player at MHS.  He respected playing for Matt Starner, his favorite coach. Chip enjoyed playing and watching football, shooting pool, listening to music, watching movies, and simply spending time with his family and friends.  Chip could never meet a stranger.  He was an incredible strong-willed person and loving son, father, brother, uncle and friend.  He had a very kind heart and quick wit and will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
