Tichun Xaivier Aipperspach: 1995 – 2023
Early Tuesday morning, May 16th, Tichun Aipperspach unexpectedly died in his home in Gillette, Wyoming. A light in his family, he was gentle, kind and deserved so much more than this life had offered.
Tichun Xaivier Aipperspach came into this world on June 9th, 1995. He graduated from Campbell County High School in 2014 and attended Washington State University. He spent his life playing and loving sports– football, track and sometimes wrestling. His heart held a passion for music and art. A trumpet player in school, he taught himself the guitar and keyboard in his own time. In his adult years, he took on a love for carpentry with aspirations of refining and one day mastering his skills.
Though quiet and reserved, Tichun was well-received by everyone he encountered. The gravity of his smile, sincerity, and humor shaped him as a loved and respectable young man among family, friends, and the community.
He is survived by his younger brother, Keion Aipperspach; his older sister, Antonia (Cody) Montgomery; his parents, Keith and Paulette Aipperspach; nephew, Eden Montgomery; as well as a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He is preceded in his transition from life by his uncles, Preston Wilburn and Christopher Washington and his grandmother, Clara Bell Wilburn.
Words will never be enough to eloquently piece together the now gaping hole left by his absence. His smile, his laugh, and the radiating joy that followed him can never be duplicated.
