Larry Phipps, owner of Land Surveyor's Workshops has passed. He died of brain cancer that was discovered about 4 years ago. The original tumor was discovered when he was doing pipeline work and he started screwing up simple numbers. An MRI revealed the sad news. I wanted to see him last August, but I got sick and had no desire to bring anything to him in his weakened state.
The Obituary from his former home town paper:
 

William Larry Phipps of Angier, N.C., formerly of Ashe County, N.C., passed away November 2, 2018.

The founder of Phipps Surveying, Larry was a Graduate of NC State University and a Registered Land Surveyor. He also ran Land Surveyor Workshops, providing continuing education training for 100’s of surveyors nationwide.

Larry was an active leader in the community serving as President of the Ashe County Chamber of Commerce and President of the Northwest Surveyor Society.
