Chip Leasure may have left the earth on October 19,
2016 but he has not left our hearts or spirit. He was a
great man, husband, and father and touched the lives
of everyone in the paths he crossed. We will never
understand why he left us other than God needed his
help in Heaven.
Chip had the biggest heart. He touched so many
people and was always willing to help anyone out.
Being able to help people was one of Chip’s greatest
assets. He went above and beyond to make everyone
feel welcome and special. “Share the Love" was a
phrase he loved and the motto he lived by. The
number of people who loved him speaks for itself!
Chip loved his family. He and his wife Dianne were
married for 19 years. They had two beautiful girls,
Bailey and Jordan and his favorite buddy, his dog
Jake. He supported them in every way and enjoyed
watching Bailey cheer and Jordan play softball,
attending all of their games. Together they ventured
across the country. Travelling was something they
enjoyed doing together, creating new experiences
and lasting memories.
Born and raised near Pittsburgh, the Steel City was
always close to his heart. Chip’s true passion was his
love for Pittsburgh Sports! He loved watching the
Steelers, Penguins and the Pirates. Chip was a
die-hard Steelers fan and ventured to 23 different
cities and stadiums to see them play and experience a
new city. He was always making new friends along
He also loved to run and workout. Once he started
running, he never stopped and ran 2 half marathons
in his favorite city….Pittsburgh!! Plus numerous 10K’s,
5K’s and mud runs throughout the U.S. He even
finished two 200 mile relay Ragnar races. He always
challenged himself to do better and always with a
smile on his face. He was a true Champion!
Today, we gather in his memory and honor his life.
Today, we run with Chip on our shoulder, using
his strength to propel us through this 5K. Cheers to
you Chip, you're our Champion! We will ALWAYS love you!
