Lander, WY – Longtime state representative Harry Tipton died Thursday. Tipton died at his home in Lander surrounded by family and friends. He was 76 and had been suffering from leukemia. A Republican, Tipton served 24 years in the Wyoming House and practiced medicine in Fremont County for 50 years. His illness kept him from attending this year's budget session. Senator Cale Case, also from Lander, says many folks talk about compassionate conservatism, but Harry Tipton lived it.
