For both locals and outsiders visiting the Delaware River towns, word of the famous Delaware River Hot Dog man spread far and wide. Tubing down the river is always a fantastic summer activity, especially when you can stop halfway for a special treat.
Greg Chance, a staple of the Delaware River, served generations of river-goers delicious hot dogs mid-way through their tubing adventure. We wish the man himself a special Rest in Peace with a heavy heart after hearing of his complications with coronavirus.
“He was an amazing father that raised four boys to be independent. He gave us everything he had, and was always proud of us,” Mr. Crance’s son Seth wrote in his Facebook post. “He will be forever missed, loved, and always in our hearts.”
The popular River Hot dog man also owned Delaware River Tubing, a popular day trip activity featuring a five-mile-long adventure down the river in inner tubes. Mr. Chance later went on to establish the famous floating grill, and the rest is history. Customers would receive a free hot dog along the way, which we can attest always hit the spot.
We are sending our love to the Chance family and extending our gratitude for helping establish the Delaware River as the tubing hub that it has become.
A viewing will be this Sunday, May 16, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Decker-Givnish Funeral Home on York Road in Warminster.
