Glen Patrick Kipp passed away in his sleep due to sleep apnea; he passed Saturday, June 22, 2019.
Glen was born Dec. 7, 1968, in Los Angeles, Calif., the son of the late Donald and Deirdre Kipp. Glen was the father of two surviving sons, with one passing away at childbirth, Patrick. Jacob Kipp passed away four years ago in an automobile accident, and he has one surviving son, Issacson Von Kipp of New Hampshire, and two granddaughters.
Glen has five siblings who survive him – Frankie T. Kipp, Emmett Kipp, Thomas Kipp, Kathleen Kipp Maggi, and Celia Kipp Cobell. Donna Kipp, who passed in 1992, was the second oldest. Glen was the baby brother of the four brothers. Glen is the grandson of Tom and Nora Kipp, Tom and Amelia Walter and Theodore and Irene Guardipee. Glen has many nieces and nephews who loved him; he was a part of their life in one way or another.
Glen was married to Stephanie Cerino; his brothers-in-law were Audie Cobell and Mark Maggi, and his sisters-in-law were Susan Archambault and Ember Peterson Kipp.
Glen was a boxing coach for the Blackfeet Nation Boxing Club here in Browning, Blackfeet Indian Reservation. Glen and his family lived most of their life in Seattle, Wash., and Spokane, Wash., and came home to Browning in 1995 where he settled down for a while.
Glen’s amateur boxing record was close to 300 amateur bouts; he boxed when boxing was boxing and had only 5-7 losses. He was the Tournament of Champions Champion in the Pacific Northwest, as well as the Pacific NW Jr. Golden Gloves Champion. His championships are too numerous to mention.
He will be missed by the Blackfeet Nation Boxing club boxers and coaches. Glen loved life through all his difficulties and sorrows, and was kind hearted and loving. His big laugh and humor will be missed.
