Chip Watkins was a great guy. Had a lot of good times many years ago. Working with him at the fairgrounds was always a fun time. Spent a few hours working on Harley's and Corvette. Always great to see him on duty at a restaurant or somewhere we would caught up. We never realize how short our time is here on earth! Godspeed my friend

I enjoyed being a part of the Bloomington North Wrestling FAMILY and always enjoyed being around Chip on and off the mat. Chip was one of my favorites. He was respectful to Bo, Gary and Me and competitive on the mat but one of the nicest off. A friend.
