Sad to read this, Chip's work helped me more times than I can remember and has definitely helped enhance my career - I'd be a poorer man without him. RIP Chip :(

it was a tragedy that Chip passed away early in life.

Thank you Mr & Mrs Pearson, and Bill Jelen et al who made Chip's knowledge available to us all again.

Like everyone else, Chip's site explained to me how to do things or do them better. For someone like him to make their knowledge accessible and helpful to everyone for free shows true generosity of spirit.

My absolute deepest condolences to the Pearson family. Nothing but gratitude for the amazing wealth of knowledge that Chip shared. Biggest THANKS and hugs to the those making it possible for his site to continue to help people.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Pearson, my deepest condolences to you and your family!

I'm writing to you from Baku, Azerbaijan. I was very upset to know about your loss. Chip has always been my 'distant' teacher, although I'd never met him, nor had I communicated with him in person.
I'm sure his invaluable tips will help many other Excel developers like me in the future.
May his soul rest in peace!
