Raised by 36 people in 3 months
Robert Tipton was a United States Marine and a Vietnam Veteran and Purple Heart recipient.  Bob had a difficult life, but he was a great guy and the life of any party he attended.  Bob died recently after a battle with cancer.  He leaves no assets and his wife is indigent.  I am one of his Marine friends and we are raising money to give Bob the burial he deserves.  I was Bob's Company Commander in Vietnam.

An inspiring and emotional funeral service was held for Bob Tipton on March 12 in St. Petersburg, Florida. It was well attended and we shared many stories about how much we all enjoyed being around Bob, and what a character he was. The Patriot Guard and Marine Honor Guard were very welcome additions. The Marine bugler played an amazing Taps. None of it would have happened without the contributions you provided on this page. Bob was a day or two away from being turned over to the county for disposal. Instead, thanks to you, he went out in style! Semper Fidelis, Tom Esslinger
