Not sure what to say?

As I travel north for a few days stay I Monterey and Carmel I'm reminded of George and Paula and how wonderful they both were to me over many years. I had the extreme pleasure to stay connected to them through the service I was able to provide them with their automobiles, especially the MG's. I just looked up George and saw that he passed away. I'll never forget you George. Every time you would call even if some years had passed between visits, hearing from you always felt so good. With much...

George, you gave me one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. Your gentle nature and strong integrity, as a great inspiration, has now changed my life. Your music is a special kind of beauty we are graced with forever. Thank you, George.

I never had the pleasure of meeting or knowing what had to be, a most wonderful man. I only know him thru hunting down & listening to his musical arrangements...He was genius in his ability to color in the story, make it come alive, & then walk off the page & park in the limbic system of the brain. His work has given me such joy. Thank you Mr. Tipton, for giving music lovers everywhere so much to love.

I wasn't aware of your passing until today. I'll always cherish the time we had together at Sunrise and watching the Golden girls as you hummed to the theme song. Continue playing for the angels George.

A friend had called and said George had passed but I'd seen no notice. Coming on the heels of Jimmie's passing, it was a double blow. Spend many good times on the decks of Laurel and Beechwood Canyons and on the beach at Trancas. So many memories. My condolences and good thoughts to Paula and Joshua during these difficult times.

I did not know that George Tipton had passed until now. I used to know him quite well back in the 70s and I was always welcome in his home. He was a wonderful musician, arranger and a loving father to his beautiful daughter Joshua. He will be missed.

I feel grateful for having shared some wonderful moments with George Tipton during the last 2 years of his life...learning about who he was and what he did. Condolences to his family and friends.
