Paul Eugene Kipp


Paul Eugene Kipp, 93, of Boulder, Wyo., went to be with his Lord and Savior and the love of his life, Glenda, on March 26, 2021.

Paul was born in Brighton, Colo., on Dec. 10, 1927, to William F. and Daisy Kipp. He was the oldest of seven children. Paul grew up on a ranch near Keansburg, Colo. When in his 20s, Paul traveled to Washington State for a job; when he stopped in Jackson, Wyo., he fell in love with the area. When the job was finished in Washington he moved to Jackson in the early 1950s, where he worked on various ranches and made many friends in that area. Paul went to work for Peterson Construction Company in Casper, Wyo., where he met the love of his life Glenda Marie Cook. They were married on April 12, 1958. Later that year he became the foreman for the Wilson Bridge Project and he and his family moved back to Jackson. When the bridge was nearly finished Paul started up his house-moving business and he later added construction and log-home building to his growing business. Paul and Glenda lived and worked in Jackson for 50 years and together had three daughters: Bonita Marie (Susie), Virginia Lynn and Rebecca Lee, before retiring and moving to Pinedale in 1994. Being the man that he was, retirement didn’t last long; he began to move houses again. He moved the Wrangler Café twice and many other buildings all over the state. He continued to work up until he was 89 years old when his daughters stepped in and told him no more! Paul is survived by his three daughters Bonita Marie Griffin, Virginia Lynn (Chris) McGarr, and Rebecca Lee (Jorgen) Nelson; two sisters Evie Dell Davis and Cecilia Ann Warren; nine grandchildren; six great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his wife Glenda; his parents William and Daisy Kipp; brothers William (Billy), Robert, Dean, and Charles Kipp and son-in-law Tom H. Griffin. A memorial service will be held Saturday April 3, at 11:00 a.m. at Covill Funeral Home in Pinedale. Inurnment will follow the service in the Boulder Cemetery and a luncheon will conclude at the Boulder Community Center.
