We are so very sorry to hear about Tip. Janet and I did not know and regret not being able to celebrate his vibrant life at the memorial service. I have very fond memories of our misadventures in Tokyo, being introduced to Indian Cuisine and accordion karaoke. Our sincere condolences and we will always remember Tip's wonderful smile and courteous demeanor.

Tips' friends at the Delaware accordion club just learned of his passing. He made several of our meetings when he visited the area. We always enjoyed his company and his great accordion skills. It was easy for all to see that our guest was a quality person with a mutual respect for all of our players. My wife Pat recalls how Tip advised her that I played much better than my beat up accordion allowed and needed a better instrument which I did eventually get.
We are so sorry for your loss but feel fortunate to have briefly crossed paths with our friend Tip.

Tip was a true gentleman, and a great colleague. He was always even-tempered, friendly, enthusiastic and warm. He had a real gift for making people feel comfortable and welcome. Although he was very intelligent, and a gifted artist, his humility and selfless approach to others is what we all remember about him. I enjoyed his accordion performances very much, and I wish I had had the talent to join him. He served his country, his community, and his profession with dignity, devotion and integrity, and was a great husband and family man. He will be dearly missed, and we send our prayers and healing energy to Carol and the family.

So saddened to hear of the passing of a colleague for whom I had the utmost respect. I shared with so many of his patients the feelings of great trust, confidence and security when working with him. He was a credit to his professions of Dentistry and Military Service. He will always be in the hearts and minds of many. Such a great guy with so many talents, may your many memories be a comfort for your family. May the great stories of him be retold to the grandchildren and become family legend. John J Ross DDS ~

You were an amazing example of what true love is between two people, always with a smile and positive attitude in life and a great example for all of us to follow. You will be greatly missed. -HM2 Vasquez

We met Tip through our local accordion club. We knew from the beginning that Tip was distinguished in music, kind in heart, and a gentleman in relationship. We have been touched by his life and deeply saddened by his death. We will miss him greatly. Our thoughts and prayers are with Carol and family.
