Anthony Lee "Tyke" Gipson
28, of Uhrichsville, went home to be with the Lord on Friday, Feb. 15, 2013 from Trinity Hospital Twin City in Dennison. Born June 23, 1984 in Canton, he was a son of Carl L. Gipson and Pamela S. (Tedrick) Gipson. A resident of Uhrichsville for much of his life, Tyke was a graduate of Claymont High School in 2002 and had been employed by Wayne-Dalton. In his spare time, he loved to fish and play his guitar. He was Methodist by faith. He enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, and his greatest joy came from the time that he spent with his daughter who was the light of his life, and with Joe Milburn who was like a father to him.
