I am very sorry for your loss. Kip was a great friend of mine that I met off of the jeep wrangler forum. We met up and a friendship started there. Had quite a few adventures together and he was there for me when I left and came back from my deployments. I was there for him when he needed my help and it was always returned. I will definitely miss you Kip but you will always be in my heart and while I’m driving my Jeep! Fair winds my brother!

Shianne, Logan, and Kips Family, We are so sorry for the loss of your loved one. Kip was very dear to us also and we will truly miss that smiling face. We got to spend time with him at Christmas and show him what silly huggable people we are when we get together and he truly enjoyed it!! He got to meet lots of family who all enjoyed meeting him also. And then again for Grandma Wolfs funeral. He was such a wonderful person. So caring and loveable. Kip, We will miss you so much and our hearts go out to all of you during this tough time in your lives. Know that one day we will all be together and see him again. All our love, Grandma and Grandpa Hagel
