    We are so sorry for the loss of Great Grandpa Pipi! I remember growing up and staying with them on the weekends that Thomas has my sister and I. We loved swimming in their pool, riding dirt bikes and doing all of the tom boy stuff. Great memories. He will be missed!
    Sharon & Nick!

  3. Casey Sutherland says:

    I remember going to Pippi’s with my Grandpa (LeeRoy) in the mornings when I was a little girl. Grandpa would go drink coffee with Grandma and Pippi. There was never a time that when I saw Pippi he didn’t have a smile on his face. He was one of the happiest men I’ve ever meet. He was such a great man. He will truely be missed by so many people. I’m going to miss going to WalMart and not seeing Pippi, (it seems like whenver I’d go there he would be there with Aunt Louann and Uncle Doug) or even running into him and Aunt Louann at the casino. I’m going to miss that smile that he always had on his face! So many people have so many great memories of him!! We all love you Pippi and will miss you. You will forever be in our hearts. Now you can R.I.P. with Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle Dave and the rest of the family.
