Open cekasts sometimes can leave a bad last image of the person in your head. You imagine one thing in your head before you go to the viewing and if its a open casket it can completely change the image for you. I’m still not sure if I would want a open casket or not.
Bless you Julie. We will always remember the great times we shared together.
Our deepest condolences to you & family. Our prayers are with you. Cindy & Don Walz
I want you to know, you can only hold Bills hand for a-while, but you can hold him in your heart for a life time.
If you need me for anything call. If you just want to talk I’m here, always.
I am so sorry for your loss. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. I feel honored to have been able to get to know Bill through dispatching. He was always friendly and a pleasure to work with.
We can not even begin to express our heartfelt sorrow for you and our family. May you find comfort in the Lord during this very difficult time. Know that even though we are many miles apart and can not be there physically with you that our hearts and minds are with you in all sincere sympathy.
Love and Prayers.

I just found out today, and I was in total shock…I couldn’t believe it. I knew Bill and his wife through the VIPS program and I am honored to have known him and gone through VIPS with him and Julie. Bill was an amazing person and always had a smile on his face ! To Julie and the rest of the Hipple family, my deepest thoughts and prayers are with you all right now. May Bill RIP and God Bless you all.
We are so saddened to hear of Bill’s passing. We have fond memories of our time next door. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family.

I’ve know Bill since we were classmates at St. Thomas in Ft. Thomas in the 4th grade, then classmates at NCH, class of ’62. Although I moved from KY in ’73, I enjoyed our meetings at our class reunions. Bill was always one of the most cheerful guys I knew. Always smiling when we met and asking how I was. He cared for everyone. The community of Northern Kentucky has lost a fine gentleman and leader. No greater contrabutor is there than one who not only taught students but went on to Protect them and the public in law enforcement. God Bless Bill and his family.
I would like to send my condolences to the Hipple family. Bill was a great man, he always made me smile. I’m going to miss him. Rest in peace and God Bless.
Rest In Peace, From 750 1/2

Rest in Peace .
May the children / grandchildren of Bill Hipple, know that their Dad/Grandfather is a HERO who we will not forget and will forever be in his debt for all he has done for us. Thank You Sir for your service and protection to us all, may you rest in peace. God bless you and your family.
Bill (756), I’m going to miss you. (750).
Dear Marty and Family,

With great sadness I have learned that your dear husband and father has passed away. I would like to send you my sincere and cordial condolences and wish you strength and consolation in these days full of sorrow.
Together with Bill I went to Newport Catholic – class of ’62. I will keep him in my prayers and my memory.

I was very sorry to hear that Bill had passed away. He coached me on a Champion 5th 6th grade basketball team at St. Joes around 1970-1971. It was always great to run into him over the years and each time we would talk for a bit about those teams. He very much enjoyed coaching…..and also enjoyed WINNING…….LOL!……which we did a lot of on those teams. He was a good coach, but a better man, and some of the things he taught me have remained with me throughout life. He had a great little grin…..like he knew something nobody else did! I’m very sorry for your loss and feel blessed that he was a part of my life. God Bless. Albert
