A “prince of a guy,” is how Edmond Memorial High School Principal Larry Maxwell describes Robert N. Chipman. “He was a great guy to be around and work with,” Maxwell said. “It’s a shame that has to happen to someone like that, (someone who) has such a positive outlook on life.” Chipman, 51, had been with the Oklahoma Water Resources Board as a financial analyst six months. He was married to Gloria J. Chipman, and they had two daughters, Catherine M. Chipman Talbert and Julie A. Szabolcsi; and one son, Carl C. Chipman.
