He did his internship at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan and his residency at Ohio State. He had two fellowships to Duke University for his training in allergy and pulmonary diseases. While at O.S.U. he was the president of the Student Medical Association. After medical school, from 1961-63 he served as a Captain in the US Air Force where he worked as a doctor in the Allergy Lab at Lockbourne Air Force base.

He leaves behind his wife of 50 years, Martha Johnson Tipton, a daughter, Nicole Coil (Rob), three grandchildren: Meredith Coil, Adam Coil, and Gray Takacs; and a sister, Joan Tipton Gill (Charlie) and several nieces and nephews.

His hobbies included working outside, (When he lived in Athens, he bought a farm and raised sheep) Music (he sang in the Men’s Glee Club at Ohio University as well as in St. Luke’s choir for 30 years) and attending his grandchildren’s sporting events.
