1973 ~ 2016
Nathan Earl Tippetts, our beloved son, brother, cousin, uncle, and friend; "Nathan" to his closest family members, and "Earl" to everyone later in life, slipped the surly bonds of Earth, and now dances in the skies. Nathan left us peacefully on Sunday, August 7, 2016, after gallantly confronting health issues with courage and strength. He was born February 9, 1973, to Donald & Harriet Tippetts. Nathan is survived by his parents, Donald and Harriet, brothers Jeff (and Britt), Scott (and Dianne), and sister Laura (and Brian) Burrows. He also leaves sister emeritus, Patty (and Jim) Bushman, nephew and niece Joshua and Jennifer Tippetts and great-nephew Dominic Lukas, and nephews Breckon, Addison, and Sebastian and niece Amelia Burrows. He is also survived by numerous friends, including especially Michael McFarland and Sue Moesinger Cooper.

Family and friends may also call on Saturday, August 13, 2016, from 10:00 - 11:45 a.m. prior to the service at the Midvale North Stake Center (97 W 7500 South in Midvale).
