Mr. Luigi Waddie “Chip” DiGiacobbe, Jr., 57, of 2341 Wildwood Drive, York, SC, passed away peacefully at Piedmont Medical Center in Rock Hill, SC.  Born December 28, 1962 in Freeport, PA, he was a son of the late Luigi, Sr. and Rosetta Cornman DiGiacobbe.

He graduated from Freeport Senior High School, and joined the United States Marine Corps after graduation.  He was stationed in Hawaii.  He later earned his Associates Degree in Foods and Nutrition, and worked as the Director of Food Service for the Moss Justice Center in York, SC under SC Department of Correction. 

Chip loved racing, fishing, and cooking.  He always went out of his way to make sure that anything he did was above satisfactory level.  A die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan, you could find him with jackets, shirts, and even a toothbrush of his favorite team.

Surviving to cherish fond memories are his wife, Lisa Brakefield DiGiacobbe of the home;  three children: Christopher DiGiacobbe of Virginia Beach, VA, Shannon Harris-Snipes and William Harris both of York, SC; two granddaughters, Carleigh Mabry and Kayla Lanier; two grandsons, Jon Paul Snipes, Jr. and Grayson Harris; one great-grandchild, Everly Nivens; four siblings: Cynthia Burd (Ed) of Columbus, MI, Dino DiGiacobbe (Jeanne), Bruce DiGiacobbe and Joseph DiGiacobbe all of Freeport, PA, and Rocky DiGiacobbe of Euless, TX; and a host of nieces and nephews: Brandon Burd (Danielle), Shauna Burd, Dominic, Antonio, Nico, Mia, Codey, Kimberly, Allie, Abby, and Aiden DiGiacobbe.

Chip leaves us with a message: “Memories don’t die. Only people do.  Remember the happy fun times and how much I loved you all.”
