Ross Chapman Obituary | On April 12, 2022, Ross Chapman succumbed to heart illness after a long and heroic fight.Robert and Marcella Chapman of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin, welcomed their first child, Ross, on April 1, 1955.
He graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School, where he was a member of the school board. His father owned and operated Maple Grove Market Antiques in Fish Creek when Ross graduated.
After his father’s death, he continued to run the store. Ross worked at the ReStore later in life, which he thoroughly enjoyed. Up until his recent illness, he also volunteered at the ReStore.
As a longtime member of the Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church, Ross was an integral part of the community. She’s a beloved congregation member. Ross was also a Masonic Lodge member and an office holder. He was quite proud to be a Mason.
Ross is a man of many passions. He was a Packers and Badgers fan. He had to pet every dog and cat he saw because he enjoyed being outside and working outside.
Ross had an extensive knowledge of Door County’s history, the Ahnapee and Western Railroad, and the Moravian Church, just to name a few. To find out more about him, simply ask him. When he saw funny things happening around him, he would tell his pals about them.
Ross went out of his way to help me. If he could be of assistance to someone, he’d drop everything. He was friends with just about everyone.
Everyone was seen as having good qualities. For the last few months of her life, he took care of his grandma Charney at home. Ross did everything he could to prolong his mother’s stay at home as long as possible.
Ross signed up to be an organ donor in the hopes of one day being able to help someone else. He always put the needs of others ahead of his own. Kindness was one of his many unique qualities. It is with heavy hearts that his friends and loved ones say their goodbyes to Ross.
By his death, Ross leaves behind a brother, Dave (Linda) Chapman, as well as cousins, Karen (Peter), Kevin (Tracy) Pinney, and many friends.
Ronald Chapman’s ancestors include his parents Robert and Marcella Chapman; his paternal grandparents Joseph and Florence Charney and Claude and Agnes Chapman; as well as his uncles George Pinney and Helen Pinney, and his maternal aunts Francis and Clarice Reynard.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the gentle loss of Ross Eric Chapman, who had been battling appendicitis for the past three years. Tributes have been paid to him by his wife Holly; his three daughters; his mother, Norma; and many other family members.
At Optimil Machinery, Ross had a great time working with his family. In 2004, he took the reins and was named president of the corporation, a position he held until his untimely death in 2009. A sense of belonging and accomplishment permeated Ross’s work environment, and he was pleased of the positive impact he had on others.
To say that Ross was an excellent husband and parent is an understatement. He loved going on family vacations to places like Langdale, Hawaii, and California, and he especially looked forward to Whitecaps and Canucks games with his pals. His girls’ soccer teams were a joy to coach, and he was often on the sidelines with candy in his pockets.
We want to express our gratitude to his loved ones, friends, coworkers, and everyone else who has been there for him throughout his battle with cancer.
Family, friends, and everyone else who knew him will be greatly saddened by his passing.There are many similarities between the Moravian Brethren and the Unitas Fratrum.
both of which are Protestant churches that were founded in the Kingdom of Bohemia 60 years before Luther started his own Protestant reform movement.
The church’s roots may be traced back to 1457 in the Bohemian Crown realm, which included Moravia and Silesia, where the Hussite movement began to oppose certain of the Catholic Church’s practises and teachings.
Although it is known in German as the Brüdergemeine, its name is derived from the exiles who fled from Bohemia to Saxony in 1722 to escape the Counter-Reformation and established the Christian community of Herrnhut.
As evidenced by their enormous geographic spread, the Unitas Fratrum maintains a global membership of approximately one million members, carrying on their long history of missionary service, particularly in the Americas and Africa.
Many of the activities that the Moravians created in the 18th century are being practised by them today, including a strong emphasis on personal conversion to Christ, piety, good works, evangelism, Christian pacifism, ecumenism, and music.
The Latin inscription “Vicit agnus noster, eum sequamur” surrounds a depiction of the Lamb of God holding a victory flag.
Located on Madison Avenue at 81st Street in Manhattan, the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel is a funeral home. It all began with the funeral home founded in 1898 by Frank E. Campbell, which is today owned by Service Corporation International.
Among the numerous notable funerals the funeral house has staged are those of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Rudolph Valentino, Judy Garland, Joan Crawford, Heath Ledger, The Notorious B-I-G, and Tommy Dorsey.
On July 4, 1872, Frank Campbell was born in Camp Point, Illinois, the founder of the company. He arrived in the Big Apple about 1892, married Amelia Klutz in 1898, and opened up shop as an undertaker near the intersection of 23rd Street and 8th Avenue in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighbourhood.
Advertizing had previously been uncommon among undertakers; the use of automobiles instead of horse-drawn carriages as hearses was also a new idea for him; and he considered that a funeral chapel was preferable to having services in the family home. On January 19, 1934, he succumbed to heart illness and died.
