Jesse Hipshire Obituary, Death – A day after celebrating turning 43 years old, my younger brother passed away unexpectedly on Easter day (April 9, 2023) in the year 2023. He spent his childhood in Parrottsville, attended schools in Greene County, and was well liked by a great number of people. When I think about my brother the lines of the song “Simple Man” by Lynard Skynard constantly come to mind.
He enjoyed the outdoors, was a hard worker, would be there to assist anybody in need, and oh did he ever adore his family. He had no desire for fancy goods and actually simply wanted a quiet existence. He, like so many other people, battled his own personal demons, and he had only just recently fought his way to a point where he could get his life back on track.
Because they did not have insurance, the family was not prepared for an unexpected loss, which is a common occurrence in situations like these. Jesse will be cremated with a very modest celebration of life with a date to be selected and a private cemetery ceremony later on. With the basic service, we should be able to get everything taken care of for less than 3000.00. IF individuals are eager to contribute more whatever excess will be put away for his adolescent daughter Abby.
Some may not feel comfortable with contributing online therefore gifts may also be given to and made payable to his eldest sister Christie Bass C/O Dotson Memorial Baptist Church @ 814 Dotson Memorial Road, Maryville, TN 37801. Let me thank everyone in advance for their generosity in this tough time of loss for our family.
