Dunn.  He was a veteran of the US Army Infantry and an accomplished musician.  After graduating from high school in Orange Park, Florida, served his country at home and in Germany.  While in Germany, he pursued his passion for travel and used his time off visiting many European countries where he made lifelong friends.  He later joined a group of musicians on tour in several cities in Switzerland and Austria.

After returning to the United States, he graduated from college in Atlanta and continued to play bass guitar for local bands while working in the field of electronics.  Chip always loved animals and had learned to train hunting dogs while living in Georgia.  Using that training, he worked for Turkey Creek Plantation until he moved to Savannah in 2020.
