A true gentleman. Met D W thru my employment at John R Neal & Associates. Always enjoyed talking with him on the phone or when he'd come to our office. RIP, Mr. Gipson.

My deepest sympathies go out to the family. He was, as were you all, a very big part of my life growing up. I will always remember his warm smile and the way always called me "Miss Vicki". What a blessing to have him for such a long time...
