Chuck Tipton

(Continued)

CLOVIS, New Mexico —

Chuck has always been a servant.  During his entire teaching career, Chuck worked supply as interim for churches seeking youth or music pastors.  Sometimes those interims lasted several years.  He worked in Baptist churches in Melrose, Dora, Texico, and Clovis. After joining the staff at Central Baptist Church, he worked as Christian Education Director, Worship Leader, and Children’s Pastor.  Then he settled into a job created just for him, Director of Media. 

He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Suzie Cotton Tipton, his son Andrew Tipton of Clovis, NM, and two daughters Savannah Tipton of Clovis, NM and Kimberly (Shannon) Wood of Cheyenne, WY, his granddaughters, Gabrianna and Genevieve Wood of Cheyenne, WY.  His mother, Stella Parker of Clovis, NM, sister Peggy (Harvey) Brady of Clovis, NM, and two step-sisters: Trisha (Rusty) McKee of Artesia, NM and Becky (Eddie) LaRue of Artesia, NM.

He is preceded in death by his father, Billy Tipton, step-father Hershel Parker, and grandparents J.A. and Elizabeth Morrow of Ranchvale, NM.

Everyone should have as many friends and supporters as Chuck.  As he was passing, a huge rally and fundraiser was being held just across the street with hundreds were in attendance.  We cannot possibly list all who have been so important in supporting us during this difficult time.  We deeply appreciate the nurses and aides at Clovis Nursing and Rehab who where true angels of mercy to Chuck.  They laughed and cried with us, and loved Chuck like family.  We so appreciate the friends who surrounded us during his illness at his passing.  The many prayers offered up to our loving Father on his behalf by people, literally all over the world, will never be forgotten.

Our pastor described Chuck best.  Pastor Alan said no one said, “No problem,” more than Chuck when asked to do something.  No matter how difficult or time consuming – No problem.
