Bip was a lot of things. Having been raised in Gaston County and after spending 40 plus years in our textile industry, I found Bip to be a leader and a gentleman. He seemed to treat everyone with trust and respect. He truly lived his life by the Golden Rule. I personally appreciated his example. What a wonderful man.

Sad day when the politicians ( both Dem and Rep) gave away our textile industry with NAFTA. They ruined this community.
