So very sad to hear of Craig’s passing. When I taught at David Crockett, I always enjoy Craig coming through my classroom to check things and sharing some of his adventures. We would often swap ideas on foods and I would share some of the students work such as their canned apple butter. Craig will be truly missed.
Sorry to hear Craig has left us. Glad I stopped in a while back and we talked for a while. I will miss him buzzing my house in his plane. Even if I was inside I could tell it was him and I would go outside and he would circle back around and give me a wave. He will me missed by many in our community and all who knew him, Wassan and Vickie Broyles.
Martha, Clyde, Shannon & Pam,
I always loved talking with Craig whenever I would come up from GA.
He was so talented at playing all of his instruments & I always enjoyed listening!,

Very saddened to hear of the passing of Craig. He was such a good friend as well as Martha and Clyde. You are in my thoughts and prayers as well as his wife and son.
I taught at Jonesborough Middle School and Craig would come to my class to check on things. He was one of the nicest and friendliness persons. He loved to talk about flying and my class loved when he came to my class. So sorry for your loss. I have been retired for 10 years and I thought about him the other day when I saw a little plane fly over. That is what an impression he had on people.
I knew Craig many years, been to his home while messing with radios etc. Hard to belief he is hone, will really miss him.
I’m so sorry to hear this. I’ll be praying for all of you!

Sending our deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers for the family. Craig was a special long-time neighbor. He was so talented and always willing to lend a hand! We remember seeing him on his grandfather Dana Tipton's farm, tending to the cows and working in the hay. Sandra enjoyed riding the school bus and growing up with him. We will always cherish the good neighbors in the Conklin community. May each of you find comfort in Jesus at this sad time. Love and Prayers to you all.
So sorry to hear of Craig’s passing. We were childhood friends and we went through school together. He was always a special guy with a-lot of musical talent.

Tipton family, we are so sorry, and shocked to hear of Craig's passing. We know that our loss is heaven's gain. He is now in his heavenly body. I cherish many memories of growing up with Craig, spending time at his home, going loafing, and doing all the fun things that boys/teens do when young. He was an integral part of his family, his work, and the community. He was a dear friend to me and my brother, Ralph, during our time together in Sunday School, Church, grade school, and high school. Their was only one Craig Tipton, I will miss his smile, laughter, and sense of humor. Clyde, Martha, Shannon, Pamela, his children, and grandchildren, I'm praying for God to wrap you in his loving arms during this difficult time. May God richly bless you and keep you. All of you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
