H.A. had a love for fishing that truly lit up his life and he valued any opportunity to get out onto the water.
H.A. was a straightforward man who valued hard work, family, and friends. His loyalty was unwavering, and he picked his friends and who he considered family carefully. He will be remembered for his down-to-earth nature as someone who worked hard, played hard and loved hard. As we bid farewell to H.A., we honor a man who lived life on his terms, leaving behind a legacy of love, loyalty, and a passion for the simple joys of life. Hollis Gipson will forever be missed and remembered by all those who were fortunate to have known him.
