Michael Anthony Chippa

Michael Anthony Chippa, age 45 of Elmira, passed away at his home on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.
Mike was born in Grayling on Nov. 3, 1972 to Michael and Janice (Bainter) Chippa.
From the time he could walk, Mike helped his parents at Chippa’s Farm in Elmira, a job that he stayed in all his life. In 1991, he graduated from Alba High School. After graduation, Mike worked at Glen’s, and finished his career at Save-A-Lot, where he worked as a meat cutter manager. It was at the former where he met the love of his life, Rebecca Webber. The two married on Sept. 8, 2001 and together raised three children.
In Mike’s spare time he enjoyed riding dirt bikes and admired Harley-Davidsons, Mustangs and rat rods, all the while listening to some hard rock in the background.
Mike is survived by his wife of 16 years, Bec; children, Seth, Jaidah and Churtous (“Curtis”); parents, Mike and Janice; sisters, Shelly (Pete) Ialacci, Janael Kitchen and Lezlie (Skip) Newkirk; his aunts and uncles; and four nieces; one nephew; and four great-nephews.
He was preceded in death by both his Chippa and Bainter grandparents; and brother-in-law, Gary Kitchen.
Visitation was held on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 3-4. A Mass of Christian Burial was held at St. Mary Cathedral on Saturday, Aug. 4.
Arrangements were entrusted to Nelson Funeral Home and Cremation Service, P.O. Box 1548, Gaylord, MI 49734.
