Julian Lipinski, 92
ADAMS, Mass. — Julian F. Lipinski, 92, of Adams passed away on Wednesday, October 30, 2019, at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, where he had been admitted a week earlier.
He was born in Adams on Upper East Hoosac Street on August 19, 1927, to John and Josephine (Cwalinski) Lipinski, both parents being immigrants from Poland during World War I. He grew up during the great depression on the east side of Adams and never left, raising his family on East Road where he lived for the last 62 years.
He graduated from the St. Stanislaus Kostka Grammar School and then the Adams Memorial High School with the class of 1945. He soon started work at General Electric Company in Pittsfield, retiring after 40 years of service in the power transformer division.
He was a lifelong communicant of St. Stanislaus Kostka Church and he was a proud member of the historic vigil to keep open the church for mass and services. Over the years he enjoyed polka dancing, bowling, skiing, fishing, scratch tickets and most of all, spending time with his family at countless get-togethers.
He leaves behind his devoted wife of 67 years, the former Helen Danforth, who lovingly and unendingly cared for her husband, especially for the last seven years after he suffered a debilitating stroke. He also leaves behind three children, his daughter Christine Duquette (James Duquette), and two sons, David (Geeta Thapa) and John (Rebecca Weisman); three grandchildren, Lindsey Duquette Brown (Tyler Brown), Joshua Lipinski (Jacque Pierce) and Pranam Lipinski; one great-grandchild, Abbey Brown; and many nieces, nephews, neighbors and friends.
He was predeceased by his parents; sisters Rosie Alibozek, Stella Blazejewski and Genevieve Kolodziej; as well as his brothers, Benedict, Frank and Stephen.
