In memory of
Dennis Chappell
Dennis Chappell Dennis K. Chappell, born May 24, 1944 in Stuttgart, AR, passed from this life in his home in Bolivar MO, surrounded by family on September 22, 2016, aged 72 years old, after a brief illness. Dennis was a local business man, being one of the original partners of Proctor-Jarvis-Chappell Insurance Agency, later to do business as PJC Insurance of Springfield, MO. Innovative in all areas of life, and unwilling to accept the status quo in his pursuits, Dennis pushed for increased technological advances throughout his successful career, allowing him to enjoy the comfort provided through aviation, as an accomplished pilot and also to live on, and be a principle owner of, Silo Ridge Golf & Country Club in Bolivar, MO, where many hours were spent in his retirement years, perfecting his game. A devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Dennis left behind a legacy of hard work, quick wit, and a kindness and generosity for which those who knew him will be ever thankful. Preceded in death by his parents, Maurice J. and Mattie Ella Jean (Crafton) Chappell, Dennis is survived by his wife Carol M. Chappell, six children: Lisa (and husband Jeff) Etheridge of Albany, GA; Darin (and wife, Carole Ann) Chappell of Bolivar, MO; Julie (and husband Brian) Ross of Anthem, AZ; Eric Chappell of Kansas City, MO; Randy (and wife Pam) Israel of Republic, MO; and Kara (and husband Dwight) Amstutz of Springfield, MO; sixteen grandchildren: Melissa (and Kyle) Roberts, Rachael (and Richard) Nuskind, Sarah (and Wil) Shrable, Evan Etheridge, Matt Engert, Ryan Israel, Clayton Chappell, Kayleigh Amstutz, Natalie Etheridge, Patrick Ross, McKenna Ross, Kamryn Amstutz, Miranda Israel, Marissa Israel, Dawson Amstutz, and Drew, Amstutz; three great-grandchildren: Mattie Shrable, Hadley Roberts, and Nora Shrable; five siblings: Daryl Chappell, Steve Chappell, Vicki Smith, Marcia Mayfield, and Marty Chappell; many cousins, nephews and nieces, and far too many friends to count. A Memorial Service for Dennis, in celebration of his life, will be held at Silo Ridge Golf & Country Club, 4551 Fairway Drive, Bolivar, MO, on Saturday, October 1st, at 4:00 p.m. Family and friends are encouraged to attend and reminisce, however, in lieu of flowers, donations would be appreciated being offered to the Central Care Cancer Center of Bolivar - 1501 N.
