Rev. Gil Tripp

July 18, 2022
Mr. Charles Gilbert “Gil” Tripp, age 88, of Americus, passed away Saturday, July 16, 2022, at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center. Graveside services were held Monday, July 18, 2022, at Oak Grove Cemetery. Rev. Rex Odom and Rev. Al Lewis officiated the service.

Charles Gilbert Tripp was born October 25, 1933, in Sumter County. He was the son of the late Charles Russell Tripp and the late Rosa Lee Bass Tripp. As a youth, he felt the Dooly Campground in Vienna, Ga. was his second home. This is where he felt the call to ministry and met his future wife. After working as Scout Executive for the Boy Scouts of America and the Tog Shop, he began serving churches in the old Americus district of The United Methodist Church. This service lasted for 36 years. During this service time, he served as Director of the Dooly Campground. He had a special love for all the churches he pastored throughout his career. There was nothing he enjoyed more than fishing, telling stories, reading and enjoying friends and family.

Survivors include his wife, Angelyn Oakley Tripp of Americus, and a son, Charles Troy Tripp of Sandy Springs. Ga.

Mr. Tripp was preceded in death by a son, Christopher Leon Tripp, a sister Audrey Tripp Hall, and a brother Leroy Tripp.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Dooly Campground, P.O. Box 7 Vienna Ga., 31092, or to a charity of choice.
