RE: Another great Bearcat lost - CTipton
Sad news. Let's hope this is the last one for a while.

I had to attend 2 funerals last week. Combine those with the two passings on here, and my mood is not the greatest.

Appreciate all that life has to offer while you can. Looking forward to next weekend, or your next planned time off work, or when you retire, etc.... and life passes you by.

I echo your comments and heartfelt sentiments. A tough few weeks for Bearcat fans with the loss of some special men who truly loved the University of Cincinnati.

God bless his family at this difficult time.

Yes the same here. I always liked it when Tip would check in from Hawaii.

Same for me. I vaguely remember if this was him, but didn't he go on a cruise down around the southern tip of South America with numerous stops over about a month? I was always super jealous of that trip.

R.I.P. bud!

Yep, I remember him giving updates on a dedicated thread back before the archive had to be reset. He lived one hell of a life.

His command of languages was well beyond anything I will ever get to. I have not so fond memories about posting poorly with respect to N Korea, and him correcting my ignorance in a few good words.

RE: Another great Bearcat lost - CTipton
I'm a little late to the eulogies but wanted to add my condolences. I had the pleasure of having drinks with Chris and Gruehls on several occasions and thoroughly enjoyed conversations with them. I know Gruehls would've been in rare form on here after that huge win over Criami last weekend. He loves giving it to those fans (the few they have). Anyway, RIP Chris.

RE: Another great Bearcat lost - CTipton
So sorry to hear this. Havent logged in for awhile.

Met Ctipton at a Bearcat meetup. A bar on the northern kentucky
Riverfront that escapes my name. Subflea was also there

When i asked who he was he said Ctipton.. I said ctipton as if
I didnt remember the screenname. He said "i am the only one on the board that uses his real name"

Very sad
