Arthur H "Chip" North Obituary

Arthur H. "Chip" North, 55, of Roseville, passed away unexpectedly at his home on January 21, 2024. Born on December 11, 1968, in Zanesville, to the late Arthur H. “Sonny” and Myrna (Jones) North, Chip lived a life marked by kindness, a passion for music, and a deep love for his family and the great outdoors. Above all, Chip's life reflected his love for his family. He was a devoted father to his sons, McKinley (Summer) North and Micah (Hayley) North, and to his daughters, Kaci (Jake) Danison, Harlee North, and Kara Marzouq. His grandchildren, Myleeigh, Novalei, Kage, Huxley, and Delaney, were the lights of his life, and he treasured every moment he could spend with them. He grew up surrounded by his caring sisters, Robin (Brady) Brandom and Patricia (Gary) Schmidt. His life was further enriched by his brother-in-law, Marty Hoadley, several nieces and nephews and a special friend, Bertha, whose presence brought him comfort and joy. Chip dedicated many years as a tree trimmer for Nelson Tree Service, showcasing his tireless work ethic and commitment to excellence. He furthered his working spirit that led him to become an associate of an independent contractor for concrete work, where he applied his hands-on skills to create lasting structures. Chip's heart and soul resonated with the rhythm of music, a legacy he inherited from his family of musicians. An excellent drummer in his early years, he later mastered the guitar, a testament to his musical talent and dedication. His love for music was a constant source of joy and an essential part of his identity. Chip's impressive headband collection was just one of the many unique and endearing aspects of his personality that family and friends fondly remember. An avid outdoorsman, Chip found peace in the simplicity of nature. He cherished the times spent hunting for mushrooms and game, fishing in the quiet of the water, and simply being outdoors. His enthusiasm for scratch-off lottery tickets was a playful activity that brought him excitement and hope. Above all, Chip's life reflected his love for his family. Described as selfless, kind, and gentle, Chip was the epitome of a man with a heart of gold. His caring nature was evident in the way he extended his kindness to others, often going out of his way to help those in need. The phrase "he would give you the shirt off his back" was not just a saying but a reality for those who knew him. His legacy is carried on not only through his family but also through the countless lives he touched with his generosity and spirit. He was preceded in death by his parents, and sister, Kimberly “Kim” Hoadley. Calling hours will be held Sunday, January 28, 2024, from 3pm – 6pm at Ross-Frash Funeral Home, 207 Burley Street, Crooksville, where friends and family are invited to share memories and reflect on the life Chip beginning at 6pm.
