As a McCaskey graduate and lifelong Lancastrian, he knew everyone. From muscle cars to motorcycles he lived a life filled with good friends and family. His laugh was loud and infectious and he never failed to make you smile. Tippy was the ultimate jokester and will be deeply missed by all who we’re blessed to know him.

My condolences to Erin, Brett and your family. You, his children, are proof of how great a father he was. Through all the trials in his life, he still kept that smile and always had time to say hello and talk, genuine talk not just passing conversation. Whenever I had Cowboys gear on he never missed a chance to get on me, he loved his Eagles. Rest In Peace Tippy. Jerry Harnish
