To say that Chip was a people person is an understatement. Everyone that met Chip loved him and he, them. He was not only the most generous person you could meet but he was loving, thoughtful, loyal and hilariously funny. He loved people. If you were lucky enough to be called a friend you were a better person because of him. There wasn’t a thing that Chip would not do for his friends. He adored each and every one for their unique qualities. He had so many friendships that lasted his lifetime. Some were childhood friends and others came later in life. He will forever be remembered as one of the best.
Chip is survived by his loving parents, John D Muncey and Mary K Muncey of Cohasset, his brother Francis N Muncey of Abington, his sister Elizabeth C Mannion and her partner Eric Young of Holbrook. He was the loving uncle to Liam and Ciaran Mannion, whom he loved like his own. Chip was the loving nephew to William and Hazel Bacigalupo of Duxbury, the late Jane Dolph of Plymouth and Susan Cabaniol of Adams, Ma. He left behind many wonderful cousins.
Chip was deeply devoted to his family and enjoyed each get together. He loved to laugh and looked forward to time spent with his brother, sister and his two nephews. Their genuine camaraderie was unmatched. There was never a dry eye as the laughs were endless.
Chip was an avid lover of guns. He was a NRA certified Firearms Instructor, which was his passion. He spent many years as a competition shooter.
