My Story

He went in to service in 1941 and served 3 years in the Army. He  was released in 1944 with 7 metals that he won, while serving. He went to all the countries overseas. While serving he had a gun to blow up in his hand. Back in those days they just checked it and sent you on your way. No records were kelp.

Alton L.Phipps was a kind and gentle person. He didn't like arguing and wanted to get along with everyone.  He married Peggy J. McCullough on October 12, 1946. They had 4 children, Albert L, Charles L,  Linda J,  and Bonnie J.

He moved north to Indiana after getting married. Life was very hard in the 30's and 40's. He found work as a construction worker.  They moved around a lot when they first came to Indiana, Looking for work. He worked that Construction until he retired. He loved to build things. And was very good at it.  He moved to Parker City, Indiana where he built his own home. He helped build Ball Hospital, Central High School, a lot of the Ball State Buildings.

We love and miss him so very much. We all had lot good times while growing up. He and mom was very good parents, The best.  Love you Daddy.. Always in heart and thoughts.
