Bob was born on May 8, 1952, in Minneapolis, Minn., to Elden and Dorothy (Bergman) Tipp. After high school Bob attended the Minnesota School of Business in Minneapolis and then spent 12 years working as a court reporter for Kanabec and Mille Lacs counties. He spent his final 23 years in Anoka County before retiring. After retirement, Bob and Sandy spent their winters in Salt Springs, Fla., and summers back home in Minnesota.
Bob enjoyed spending time with family just visiting or off on some type of adventure. One of his favorite pastimes was traveling throughout the United States with Sandy and their children, where they saw many sights and spent a lot of quality time together. Another favorite pastime of Bob’s was riding motorcycle. Bob loved playing card, singing with bands, karaoke and dancing. Faith and family were in everything he did.
Bob was a great person. He always had time to listen and offer advice and could always put humor into it to lighten your spirit and help you find the silver lining.
