Champ served in the Army Tank Corps in World War II.
He graduated from Cumberland Law School in Birmingham in 1947, and returned to Meridian to practice with his dad. Champ was in general practice for decades, and now spends his days visiting with his friends in several breakfast and lunch groups, running errands and at home in Tamola with his wife.

Meridian attorney Champ Gipson celebrated his 89th birthday yesterday. He graduated from Cumberland Law School and has been a member of the bar for more than 65 years.
Champ is still active, and even makes a court appearance now and then. He was in my court this spring filling in for his former law partner of many years, Jim Williamson. I see Champ most Wednesday mornings for breakfast at Jean’s, where he always has only one cup of coffee.
If you see Champ, wish him a happy birthday and commend him for his long legal career.
