Johnny “Dollar” Dwayne Tipton, 55 of Hazen went to be with the Lord Saturday, March 13, 2021 after a lengthy battle with complications of COVID -19.

Johnny was born on November 11, 1965 in Stuttgart to J.B. Tipton and Tessie Arcola King Tipton.  He was a 1984 Stuttgart High School graduate and earned an Associates Degree from Phillips County Community College.  Throughout his career, he worked at Napa, Riceland Foods, Odom’s TN. Pride, Schwan’s, Boar’s Head, and Producer’s Rice Mill as a Safety Director, where he made countless friends.  Throughout his life he was a volunteer fire fighter, a member of the Hazen School Board, and a member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Carlisle.

Johnny loved and excelled at baseball growing up, which carried over to him being an avid Razorback fan.  He was an outdoorsman, making special memories with friends and family hunting ducks, deer, and fishing.  Camping was another way he made special moments with family and friends, willing to cook out for the group.  He loved his special pets and let them boss him around.  It was his nature to make others around him feel good.  His smile could light up a room and he never met a stranger.  He loved to share his love of Christ with hopes that all would come to know Him as their Savior.

Johnny was preceded in death by his parents.  Survivors are his wife of 29 years, Karen Coyle Tipton; his daughters, Meagan Tuggle (Bubba), Maleah Haralson (Ricky) of Romance and Sarah Tipton (Cody Smith) of Hazen; his siblings, Brenda Persons (Donald) of Pine Bluff, James “Jug” Tipton (Corman) of De valls Bluff, and Marty Tucek (Robert) of Stuttgart; grandchildren, Easton Tuggle, Avery Haralson, and Ally Haralson; his father-in-law, Lamar Coyle, and a host of nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be from 1:30 to 2:00 P.M., Monday, March 15, 2021 at the Oakland Cemetery Pavilion in De Valls Bluff with funeral services at 2:00 P.M.

The family requests that everyone please wear a mask and abide by Covid guidelines.
