As Co-Trustee for the Glenn and Ruth Mengle Foundation, working with Ruth Mengle Blake, and later with DeVere Sheesley, Sr., Mr. Chaplin touched the lives of countless individuals in the DuBois-Brockway area through charitable grants from the Foundation and his own personal generosity.
 
His service to community went well beyond his professional and philanthropic contributions. He served as President of the Board of the DuBois Area YMCA, chairing the initial capital campaign for the construction of the YMCA Community Center and assuming key roles in subsequent YMCA capital campaigns.
 
In addition, he chaired a successful Salvation Army capital campaign for expansion of its headquarters in DuBois, served as President of the Board of the United Way of the DuBois Area, President of the Advisory Board of Catholic Social Services, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Penn State Public Broadcasting, Treasurer of the Board of Bucktail Council Boy Scouts of America, member of the Board of the DuBois Education Foundation of Penn State University, and member of the Investment and Endowment Committees of DuBois Area Catholic School.

Recognizing his extensive community service, the DuBois Area Jaycees presented Mr. Chaplin its Distinguished Service Award in 2004. In presenting the award, then Jaycee President Andy Sayers observed that in the position of Co-Trustee of the Glenn and Ruth Mengle Foundation, Mr. Chaplin "has played a key role in the allocation of substantial grants for the welfare of our area community in the areas of education, recreation, cultural arts, health care, social service, and literacy that have touched the lives of literally thousands of people and enhanced the quality of life for everyone in the DuBois-Brockway area."
 
A member of St. Michael the Archangel Roman Catholic Church in DuBois, Mr. Chaplin was awarded Papal Honors by Pope John Paul II for his outstanding service to the Church and the Diocese of Erie. Awarded to him by Bishop Donald Trautman in 2006, the Knights of Pope St. Sylvester Medal recognizes "lay persons who by their example in business, the professions, and society have lived exemplary lives."
 
Professionally, he served on the Board of Directors of Deposit Bank and First Commonwealth Trust Company. He was a graduate of the Bucknell University Trust School and lectured at the school as an instructor. He served as President of Group IV Corporate Fiduciaries Association and as a member of the Executive Committee of the Pennsylvania Bankers Association Trust Division.
 
His greatest accomplishment however, was his love of his family and his many friends, of which he held so dear.
 
As an alumnus of Notre Dame, he was an active supporter of the University and an avid fan of its sports programs throughout his life. Additionally, he was an accomplished athlete, runner, hiker, biker, canoeist, racquetball and tennis player. He played and coached basketball and softball in Clearfield before moving to DuBois.  His love of fireworks provided family, friends, and neighbors near and far, many years of enjoyment on the Fourth of July.

John Chaplin, of Rockton, PA; and a sister, Mary Chaplin, of Clearfield, PA. 2 step children, Bill Hughes of Clearfield, PA & Rebecca Hughes and her husband Ethan Lott of Natrona Heights, and his two golden retrievers, Carly & Caty.
