It is with regret that I report the passing of Chippy Gagliardi - race director of the Rosebank Run for the Roses held annually on Columbus Day in Rosebank.
I had the opportunity to get to know Chippy over the last 8 or 9 years while helping him with the race and am a better person for it. Chippy was a great man and a strong advocate for all things Rosebank. I know I will miss him and Staten Island has lost a strong supporter of running, and sports in general.
Below is a copy of the Obituary as reported in the Staten Island Advance:
Joseph "Chippy" Gagliardi
Joseph (Chippy) Gagliardi on March 26, 2007. Beloved husband of Theresa. Devoted father of Joseph and father-in-law of Lori. Dear grandfather of Joseph, Maria, Nicole, Anthony, Robbie and Lauren.

Mass of Christian Burial Thursday 10 A.M. St. Joseph's R.C. Church. Private cremation to follow. Family requests no flowers.
