Class of 1953
Passed Apr 26, 2011
Doug Chaffee, 75, of Greenville, SC, died April 26, 2011 at the Greer Medical Hospital.

A native of upstate New York, son of the late Ralph and Marjorie Chaffee, he served his country for several years both in the United States Army and then in the Army National Guard. Doug also attended college at Bob Jones University where he studied Art and History. After college, he began his career at IBM and worked there for nearly 20 years. Upon retiring from IBM, he started his own company where he provided illustrative and graphic-design services to a number of fields including, by not limited to; Christian periodicals, military publications, science-fiction publications, and technical journals. His work can be found not only in Sunday School literature, Vacation Bible School literature, and Christian-School textbooks, but also in the Smithsonian Institute, in National Geographic magazine, Naval Proceedings magazine, and in the White House.

All through his life and career, his heart was always toward serving his Lord and Savior. Much of his time, talent, and effort was invested in illustrating the stories and lessons found in the Scriptures. His main desire was that some of the work he produced and the interactions he had would point those affected toward Christ.

Surviving are his wife, Melba Chaffee of the home, and a son and daughter-in-law, Scott and Rebekah Chaffee of Greenville, SC. He also had two grandsons, Holden and Stewart Chaffee of Greenville, SC.

After graduating from Owego Free Academy he served his country proudly in the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War. Tip was an avid sports fan and remained a faithful NY Yankee fan even after living out of state for many years. His wit and sense of humor were his calling card. There is an empty place in the hearts of all who knew him.
A Memorial Service celebrating Tip's life will be held on July 2 at the 2nd Baptist Church of Richmond, 9614 River Road, Richmond VA 23229-7635
