October Glory (I think)

I have a maple and the tips on the branches are dying. I can't remember what it is called?? I don't think there is anything I can do for it. All my others have died. I just thought its my last one and thought I might could sling Holy Water on it or something! :) Can anyone remember what the die back is called?? I can take a pix if need to.

    I couldn't remember the name of what is killing it? I would like to save it if possible but I think what ever it has will kill it.
