A truly lovely man, a great Catholic gentleman…and sespite our 35 year age difference, a great friend. Truly a class act in every sense of the word. Rest in Peace, Old Friend….and know that I will miss ya! MARK ROGER,

  5. My wonderful dad all though we might have been miles apart I felt your love day in and day out. I could always pick up the phone and call you with my problems or just to shoot the breeze and talk about nothing but know everything was ok with the world once I hung up the phone with you. I will always be a daddy's girl no matter how old I get. I love you and will miss you more than you or anybody will ever know. Rest in Peace and be assured I will meet you and mommy in heaven. Love you always.

  6. Dear Barbara, Nancy, and Susie. Thank you for sharing your Dad with me. He was an amazing man. Patient, kind, and adventurous. From LBI, Bear Mountain and everything in between. He always knew his second stop was me❤️

  7. You will always hold a special place in my heart grandpa. You have always been there for me and your love was never unnoticed. I am grateful that I have such an amazing grandfather how cared so much for me. All the memories that we have shared over the years going to giants games, going to the liberty science center, and all the trips to LBI is something that I will hold onto and never forget and I hope one day I can tell my kids and share what an amazing person you are. Rest in peace grandpa I now have two great guardian angels looking over me. I love you and miss you.

  8. Barbara, may your father rest in peace as he joins your mom in heaven. Together they are watching over you and your family. I hope your memories will help you get through this tough time and help heal your heart as they keep him with you always. Love to you all- Wanda and Eric

  9. My condolences to the Lipinski Family. I remember Mitch as a strong, confident, and kind man. He and my Dad, Lou Ippolito were best friends as they went to high school together and both served in WW2. Their friendship endured until my Dad passed away in 1985. In fact, Mitch was my Godfather. I remember visiting Mitch and Helen with my parents many times as a child as he and my Dad had a beer or two and discussed the events of the time and how their lives were going. May he Rest In Peace.

    Mike Ippolito

  10. Dear Barbara, Nancy and Susan,

    My deepest sympathy on the passing of your Father. I remember both of your parents as very kind and thoughtful. Treasure your beautiful memories. May your Dad Rest In Peace.

  11. To the father-in-law I called dad. He never gave up on me. Helen and Mitch helped me through some tough times. They were always there for me. I like to think I was always there for them as well. I loved to cook for dad and he loved to eat! There will aways be a seat at the table for you dad. I will miss you very much, may you rest in peace.

  12. Sincere condolences to the family! Mitch and I became friends only a few years ago at the Five Star Residences but had a number of acquaintances in common because PSE&G was a major client for me. (I designed and supplied industrial measurement instruments.) He was also quite interested in my USAF and civil flight experiences. He will be missed by his many friends here.
