Known as Jack, Mr. Chaffinch was born in Seaford, Delaware on September 4, 1953, to the late Mary Chaffinch and Earnest Chaffinch.

Mr. Chaffinch was a dedicated lifetime member of Blades Fire Department where he recently celebrated serving 50 years. Much of his time with the Blades Fire Department was serving his community as a Cheif Engineer. Mr. Chaffinch enjoyed collecting guns, working on fire apparatuses and lawnmowers. In his spare time, Mr. Chaffinch enjoyed hunting, attending community functions, dancing, socializing at the fire company and spending time with his two grandsons.
