Following a long illness bravely fought, Edward Kipp passed away at 2:19 am Saturday 10 April after an evening spent with his wife and two daughters. Edward Kipp was born 16 April 1943 In Burford Township, Brant County, Ontario. He was one of the two sons of his parents Lorne Kipp (born in Gobles, Ontario) and Phyllis Link (born in Carievale, Saskatchewan). His brother Allan and sister in law June predeceased him. He attended public school in Princeton, Ontario and high school in Paris, Ontario. He then attended the University of Western Ontario where he studied Chemistry and received his HBSc and PhD in Inorganic Chemistry. He worked as a Research Scientist for two years in Environmental Chemical Engineering. He returned to the University of Western Ontario to do his MLS. He then worked at the National Research Council of Canada for nearly thirty years as a Research Information Specialist. He is survived by his wife Elizabeth, daughters Margaret and Kathryn, son in law Rick, grandsons Felix and Thomas and his many nieces and nephews, great nieces and great nephews. During his seventeen years of retirement (and before) he was very involved with the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society, co-led Historical Bus Trips into the United States and with his wife toured parts of the United States and Europe. In 2012 he received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his lifelong volunteerism. In lieu of flowers donations to the Ontario Genealogical Society would be very much appreciated. May God bless you and keep you dear Edward, may God’s Countenance shine upon you and give you peace.
Ed is fondly remembered. Blessings to Elizabeth and family.

Deepest and Sincerest Sympathies and Condolences to Edwards Family. I first met Edward at my very first UELAC Conference Manitoba 20+ years ago. Seeing a "Kipp" on the attendees roster, I had to find him. Luckily, I did and mentioned that we were distant cousins(Steynmets/Kipp) dating to New Amsterdam (now Ney York) in the mid 1600s.
My condolences to Ed's family from all of us at St.Lawrence Branch. He was a great asset to us in Mohawk valley trips then branch newletter editor. His passing is a great loss to all the branches he helped and the UELAC overall. Ed thank you for your loyally and voluntarism. Ed you now can complete your family tree with unlimited time and actual ancestors to attest to it. It is unfortunate that the pandemic cant give you the send off that you really deserve. You and your family are in our hearts and prayers.

My most sincere sympathy to Elizabeth and the other members of Ed's family. Ed was a most valued member of the Sir Guy Carleton Branch of the United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada for many years and was responsible for some significant contributions to our organization. He will be much missed.
He and I shared a like of jigsaw puzzles.
One evening I typed in my grandfather’s name and discovered the mass of Edward”s work. It was the beginning of a great adventure as I explored this amazing family tree he had assembled. Eventually I had the pleasure of spending a few days with Edward and Elizabeth. It was so lovely to meet them both. I will always remember Edward for opening the door for me to this amazing adventure.
He was so generous with his knowledge, and will be missed by many family historians. Deepest sympathies to Elizabeth and family.
