Continuing with the theme of my younger brother, Isaac Tipton, today I am posting several pictures that I have of Isaac from his youngest picture to his latest.
|Isaac definitely doesn't want to be here - that's Curious John to the right - 1948|
Isaac was the second child of my parents Ike (Isaac, Sr.) and Betty Tipton. He was named after my father because my father wanted a child named after him. When I was born my Mother did not want me named "Isaac" because she considered the name Isaac 'ugly' and gold my father so. However, she relented when my second brother was born. Ironically this proved to be appropriate because Isaac was born blonde like my father and grew up to have the same job that my father had (Gindy Manufacturing Company).

Sadly, there is only one picture of Isaac as a baby. I was the oldest so I had most of the baby pictures. My youngest brother, John, also has a few baby pictures and I will feature him in future blog postings. However, this blog post is devoted to my handsome and big hearted brother Isaac, Jr.
