Anthony Robert “Chip” Laudone, Jr., 78, of Soddy-Daisy, passed away on Saturday, June 2, 2018. He was a member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church. Chip served his country in the U.S. Navy as a medic on the USS Enterprise (CVN-65) and was a veteran of the Vietnam War. After retiring from Nichols Food Service as Vice President of Sales, he started woodcarving, which became a second career. He became a Master Wood Carver of wildfowl, birds and fish, receiving awards in both regional and national competitions. Chip enjoyed being in the outdoors – fishing, hunting and observing the inspirations for his carvings. He was a very devoted husband, father and grandfather who always put his family first. He was preceded in death by his wife, Kathi Laudone.
Survivors are his sons, David Laudone (Wendy) and Chris Laudone (Rhonda); daughter, Jennifer Daniel (Robert) and grandchildren, Meghan Johnson and Ryan Johnson.
Services will be at 7 p.m. Monday, June 11, 2018 at Holy Spirit Catholic Church with Monsignor Al Humbrecht officiating. The family will receive friends beginning at 6 p.m. before the service in the downstairs hall at the church.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
