Richard L. Lipinski


Richard Lewis Lipinski, 77, of Kokomo, Indiana, passed away peacefully on Saturday, May 19, 2018, at University Hospital in Indianapolis. Born in Russiaville, Indiana, to John and Esther Lipinski, he was one of nine children. Dick was a member of the class of 1958 of Western High School and lived most of his life in Russiaville and Kokomo.
Dick is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Connie; daughter, Deb (Mike); and three grandchildren, Michael, Nicholas and Morgan. Dick is also survived by siblings, John (Shirley) Lipinski, Millie Paul, Tom Lipinski, Kay (Ron) Mickelson, and Cindy (Roy) Nehl, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his sister, Patty Randall, and brothers, Dwayne and Jim Lipinski.
Dick was a loving father, husband, grandfather, and friend to all.
Dick worked at Continental Steel as a brick layer until his retirement in 1986. Dick was a passionate man, and those who knew him never had to guess where they stood. Dick enjoyed auto racing of all types and Dick, Connie, and Deb would go to races throughout the Midwest. Also, in his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, yardwork, and his neighbors both in Kokomo and Weeki Wachee, Florida. Dick was always there to help friends with household projects, or whatever else they needed him for. He truly loved dogs as long as they were not his. Once the grandkids came along, they were the focal point of Dick's leisure time.
Visitation will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday May 24, at Stout & Son Funeral Home, 200 E. Main St., Russiaville. Funeral services for Dick will be at 10 a.m. Friday, May 25, at Stout & Son Funeral Home, with Pastor Steve Bishop officiating. Dick will be laid to rest at Albright Cemetery.
