“Milton West was my childhood next door neighbor. I knew him as Mr. Chip. He retired from DOW

chemical as an operator. He has always been there for me since I was two years old. Growing up without a father was always difficult for me But the good lord surrounded me with great men, Mr.Chip was one of them. He constantly preached the value of an education, taught me how to take care of a yard, he taught me to see people for who they are not what they look like, he taught me how to treat my mother like a saint and many other life lessons. His contributions to me becoming a good son, man, and father were huge.”

“So this past May my wife and I had a little boy named Bob Wayne Shugart. When Mr. Chip and his wife Shirley saw him they fell in love with him. They babysit him sometimes and we go and visit when we can.”

“The last time we were over there Mr. Chip said he wants to be called ‘POP.’ He says that’s his grandson. So we had to come up with a name for his wife. We decided on Lolli!!!!”

“So we tell Bob Wayne we are going to see Lolli Pop!!! I’m grateful that Lolli and Pop will be a part of my son’s life. If he learns half the things from Mr. Chip as I did he will become a great son, man, and father.” Cody added, knowing that his son Bob will be a great man with Mr. Chip right by his side! It is truly wonderful people such as Mr. Chip. A family is simply a group of people that make you feel at home but not only blood bond
