Bobby Tipple Fund For Megan

In the early hours of September 1, 2014, Bobby Tipple was night diving with two friends off of Kōloa Landing on Kauai's South Shore. His companions reported that Bobby was unaccounted for when they lost sight of him shortly after grouping up for an 'all clear' check.
Search and rescue efforts by the Kauai Fire Department, Coast Guard and his friends were ongoing throughout the night and morning. Later that morning, they found Bobby, in the water outside of Brenneke's but unfortunately he was not responsive.
The water was Bobby's second home, and as a surfer and diver, he passed on doing what he loved to do. In the words of one of his best friends, Seth, Bobby was a LEGEND and deeply devoted to his wife, family and friends.
He left behind a loving Ohana, countless friends and Megan, his wife, who he had just married one month prior. Megan is one of our most loving and generous friends and we would love to help her with expenses to able to fly and visit her family. But, most of all, to have all the time she needs to grieve free from financial burdens. This fund will help her with any arrangements for services for Bobby and celebrations of his life.
Any donations small or large will be greatly appreciated. Mahalo nui loa for your Aloha and support. Our thoughts and prayers are with Megan and family.
