Robert “Bob” Paul Tipp, of Mora, passed away on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at St. Cloud Hospital with his family at his side, after a long and courageous battle with multiple myeloma. He was 67 years old.

Bob was born on May 8, 1952 in Minneapolis, MN to Elden and Dorothy (Bergman) Tipp. After High school Bob attended the Minnesota School of Business in Minneapolis, and then spent 12 years working as a court reporter for Kanabec and Mille Lacs counties. He spent his final 23 years in Anoka County before retiring. After retirement, Bob and Sandy spent their winters in Salt Springs Florida and summers back home in Minnesota.

Bob enjoyed spending time with family just visiting or off on some type of adventure. One of his favorite past times was traveling throughout the United States with Sandy and their children, where they saw many sights and spent a lot of quality time together. Another favorite past time of Bob’s was riding motorcycle. Bob loved playing card, singing with bands, karaoke and dancing. Faith and family were in everything he did.

Bob was a great person. He always had time to listen and offer advice and could always put humor into it to lighten your spirit and help you find the silver lining.

Bob is preceded in death by his wife Sandy, parents, sisters Pamela and Julie, and other family members.

He is survived by three sons, Brandon Tipp of Mora, Troy Tipp of Aitkin, and Eric Tipp of Aitkin; daughter Angie Tipp of Mora: 5 grandchildren, Brooke, Teegan, Alexander, Ava, and Tyler; siblings, Bonnie (Jim) Keller, Paula (Curt) Thompson, Jon Tipp, and James Tipp; numerous other family members and friends.

  4. We will miss Bob and Sandy so much in Salt Springs. We attended church together here. His guitar and offertory songs were so lovely, and the goodies she shared for coffee hour are two sweet memories. But most of all, we just loved seeing them and worshiping with them. We are so sorry for the family’s loss. I know they will be missed by them and also by all their friends.

  5. So sad to hear. Met him last fall up at Flagship doing Karaoke. Had a great night talking with him about all the stuff we had in common and doing duets together. Wanted to get together and and play guitar with him. My deepest condolences.

  6. The Deepest of sympathies go out to his loved ones. I remember once when my Mom was telling him about a play I was in. Bob insisted I give him my autograph. It helped me build my confidence and made for a fun memory. I was just talking about him last week. He will always be someone I remember. (My parents were Warren and Martha Johnson of Mora)

  7. Being the first house you usually saw going into SSV and stopping to chat if they were out, I will always remember that. Will Miss you two but I know you have each other again. Love D &V.

  8. I’m so sorry for the loss of a father, grandpa, brother-in-law, brother, uncle and friend to many. At a time like this you try to find some kind of comfort… may he be with Sandy and and sharing his beautiful voice with all his friends and family that were there to welcome him. My heart goes out to all the family that must be still trying to recover from the loss of Sandy.

  9. What an amazing man, he will be greatly missed. I am sad for all of us here at Cactus Jack’s. His smile always lite up the room!

  10. We mourn the loss of precious Bob and Sandy. They are both together in heaven now, where Bob’s beautiful singing can be heard throughout the realm. We loved Bob very much, just as he loved everyone, too. Dearest Bonnie, Rick, and Tipp Children, you are always in our hearts and prayers. Your Palatka St. John Lutheran Church Family is here for you. Love, Margaret Melzer and Family

  11. I worked with Bob Tipp in Anoka County for a number of years, and regret not staying in touch after we each retired from our work with the County; I learned of Bob’s death from a former work colleague. I have never known a sweeter, kinder, gentler soul than Bob Tipp. He fully enjoyed life, and brought others along with him. Bob would do anything for anybody. He was fully invested in everything he did, throwing his heart and soul and boundless energy into the welfare of his community, his family, his church, and his workplace. His work as a legal assistant in the County Attorney’s Office was outstanding; he was one of the finest human beings I have had the honor to work with, and to call a friend. May God bless you and keep you, my dear friend.
