Harold Dean Shipp, 80, of Winslow, went to be with the Lord on December 12, 2017 in Rogers. He was born on August 11, 1937 in Hartman, Arkansas to Sherman and Lera Mae (Barber) Shipp. Harold was a family man who loved God and he impacted countless lives over the years through his ministry. He was very dedicated to his family. Each of his grandchildren were prayed over and rocked to sleep in his old rocking chair. He would often show his love for people by affectionately assigning them a unique nickname. Harold generously supported local churches and ministries throughout the area. Those who knew Harold most would tell you that he would spend many hours praying without ceasing and reading his Bible.
