    Kipp, you will be deeply missed. There is a void left here with you gone, but you will live on through your family and the memories we will often share of you and our times together. I am forever grateful to you for raising such a man ( Mason ) that I get the honor to call my husband. You have taught him the love of carpentry, the outdoors, and so much more. Our eyes will miss seeing you. Our ears will miss hearing your voice and your laugh. Our arms will miss your hugs. Our hearts will hold onto all of the things we will miss and we will remember that it hurts this much because we loved that much. Your love will live on. Breathe now and rest in peace my Dear Kipp. Love you.

    Grandpa Kipp, I wish we could have spent more time together; I wish I had more opportunities to get to know the amazing man I’ve heard so many amazing things about… Visiting you down in Mount Pleasant, was one of my favorite things to do because I loved your presence. Without you here with us no longer, things have been rough on the family. We miss you dearly… Rest with peace, I love you Grandpa.
    With forever love,

    Kipp fought a very tough battle over the last few years. Although we tried to prepare for this sad time, nothing can really prepare you for the loss of someone who gave you the best part of him. I am thankful everyday for our son Mason & our daughter Erin. Sending love & prayers of comfort to all who knew & loved Kipp.

    I just read the beautiful honoring words about dear Kipp, your father, Erin, Mason (Mina)…I learned a little more about your father, as I have only met him at a couple birthday parties a few years back. I feel touched to feel of his loving legacy in your family’s lives! Sending condolences with much love, peace, understanding and healing as you shift into this next journey of experiencing LOVE through the subtle timeless and undying realms!!!!!

    Papa Kipp,
    I am saddened for the loss of such a wonderful person. The world is a bit dimmer and quieter without your presence. Thank you for filling my childhood with memories of camping at Tanner Flats, the most glorious water balloon fights, your delicious cooking, and the sound of your laughter. I am so privileged to have had you as a second father figure and appreciate you always cheering me on. Rest easy dear friend and know we will be here supporting and cheering on your loved ones.
    Much Love,

    I am so sad to hear of Kipp passing. I have so many memories and things I was taught that I am thankful for. Without Kipp I would not have had a “(step)dad” or the best brother(Mason) and sister(Erin). I will always love and miss you. RIP and I will always be your “Andy”
    Love you.xoxoxo
