Donald D. Chiappetta


Donald D. (“Chip”) Chiappetta of Greenwich, passed away on Wednesday, March 13, at his home in Stamford, surrounded by his family. Donald was born in Port Chester, NY, on June 30, 1942, to Albert and Matilda (Carino) Chiappetta. While growing up in Greenwich, Donald was known as the “King of Pemberwick Park.” After marrying Linda Haas, the love of his life, in 1963, Donald started his own refuge business in Greenwich. After twelve years in this business, Donald then became a service writer for many dealership­s, including Grassi Cadillac of Greenwich and Minchin Buick of Stamford.

Donald, known as “Boomp” to his family, loved coaching and watching sports! He sponsored a teen hockey team and coached his son’s little league baseball teams for years. He loved watching the NY Yankees, the NY Giants, and the UCONN Girls Basketball team.

Boomp’s other loves included, watching Westerns, “Let’s Make a Deal,” and the “Price is Right,” fishing, antique cars, going to Florida, and eating chili on everything! But Boomp’s greatest loves were his wife, Linda, his children: Tami Wagner-Nast, Carrie Chiappetta, Alison Chiappetta, and Donald (“Chip”) Junior Chiappetta; his son-in-law, Neal; his grandchild­ren: Lexie, Ava, and Madeline, Abigail, and Natalie; and his brother, Robert Deregibus.

The family would like to thank Dr. Ralph Cipriani and Caring Hospice for their incredible care.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Caring Hospice, 456 Glenbrook Road, Stamford, CT 06906.
