Joey, as known by his family loved to cook and breakfast was his specialty. He spent many years in restaurants across the country.
Growing up in Massachusetts, with a father who was a ship builder in the navy, his love of water and wooden boats started. He couldn’t drive by a boat for sale without stopping and looking at it. He was a traveler of the country spending a majority of his time in Lincoln, NE and later in life Columbus, OH. He made many friends along the way.
He enjoyed life to the fullest on his motorcycles and multiple boats, floating or not floating!
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Joe Chaput Family for future designation.
Service was held at New Hope United Methodist Church, 1205 N 45th St, Lincoln, NE, Friday, January 31st, 2020 at 2pm, with refreshments after.
