Kenneth Hipps inspired me as a youth. He was a mentor and great friend. I was saddend to hear of his passing. As a Military man myself for nearly 30 years I salute him. I am sorry I was unable to attend his services. Me and my family send our blessings. I have many found memories to cherish of him.
