It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Paul Eugene Tippett 91. He died on March 23, 2014 at Bortz Health Care. Paul was born to Robert and Sarah (Brown) Tippett on July 29, 1922. He was the third of their eleven children.
Paul began farming at the age of 17 when his father died and an uncle gave the family a cow to help them survive during the Great Depression. Five of his brothers served in the military in WWII, but the draft board left him home to help support his mother and younger siblings.
He was always grateful to the older/wiser farmers that gave him much needed advice when he was just starting out and, in his later years, tried to pass his knowledge on to anyone who asked. Paul believed in helping the community and was a member of many community groups and helped with many community projects.
He married Dorothy "Evelyn" Schreier on October 17, 1959.
Paul is survived by his wife Evelyn, children Larry and Sharrie, daughter-in-law Tina, grandson Justin with his wife Emily and their children Annabelle and Tylar. He is also survived by his siblings Jerry (Wilma), Carl (Agnes), Ellen Schreier and Mary Belle Gregory and by many nieces and nephews.
