He leaves behind his wife; Cheryl Balicki of almost 34 years, his son Christopher Balicki and wife Nicole Balicki, his daughter Sarah Balicki and Todd Douillard. Chipper was very excited for the arrival of his first grandchild in September. He also leaves behind his two brothers; Peter and Michael Balicki and his sister, Petra Longtine-Balicki. He will be missed by his friends, family and many nieces and nephews. Chipper was the tow truck driver for Balicki Auto Body, he was an avid horseshoe player, his love for racing was known to everyone, as he supported local racers and of course taking trips to the dirt track, Lebanon Valley. His passions for sports, especially UMass Amherst, gave him his job at the Mullins Center where he was able to support sport fans and players in a different way. He had the privilege of working alongside his family his whole life. He was a great husband, father, uncle, cousin and friend to so many. He will be extremely missed by everyone especially when you see that yellow truck driving by and him not in it. His family will remember him for his genuine smile, distinctive laugh and big heart. Chipper was predeceased by his father Edward Balicki and mother Irene Balicki. Cebula funeral home has been entrusted with his arrangements, which he wished to be private.
