Samuel 'Sam' Chiappa


Sam's life played out in many roles - devoted husband, father, grandfather & great-grandfather - making memories filled with love, laughter and generosity while happily sharing his time with family and friends.

He believed in serving his country and his community - a proud yet humble Navy veteran of Korea, Sam continued in service to his fellow citizens, be it as a baseball coach, community club member, president and organizer, or trusted friend and neighbor.

A gentleman and gentle man, his thoughtful and selfless character will always be remembered and cherished by those fortunate to have known him.

To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged, the Chiappa Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the



Dover American Legion Post 27  

As a Navy Korean War Veteran and a lifetime member of the Dover American Legion Post 27, Sam dedicated himself to the creed of the American Legion ~ love of God and Country and traditional American values ~ strong national security, adequate and compassionate care for veterans, their widows and orphans, community service, and the wholesome development of our nation's youth.  A donation to the Dover American Legion Post 27 would be a lasting tribute to Sam's service and his dedication to his community.
