He was born to the late Henry Leon Lipinski and Tillie Warcezecha. Edwin was the fourth of five children. Edwin spent the last 61 years with the woman he loved Judith Ann (Heinesh) Lipinski. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Vic Lipinski, and daughter Mary Christine Lipinski. Those left to cherish his memory are his sisters Irene and husband Dennis Koudelka of San Antonio, TX, Elenore and Vera Pruske of San Antonio, TX; his daughter Cheryl Denise Finley and husband Mark of San Antonio, TX; sons Edwin Lipinski Jr and wife Debby of San Antonio, TX, John Alan Lipinski and wife Debbie of Abilene, TX., numerous nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and extended family.
Edwin left school at an early age to pursue a career in construction as a Taper/Floater and Drywall sub-contractor. He was a hard worker, a true master of his trade as he spent the last few years of his career primarily hanging drywall with his brother-in-law Dennis. He retired after 50+ years in the business, occasionally doing small jobs and helping family. At age 82, proving the expertise in his trade, he proudly finalized his last work of art finishing out his grandson’s new room. Despite his strong exterior, Edwin displayed that same compassion as an Honest, Devoted and Caring man to his wife and children. He enjoyed, watching Spurs games, playing games on his phone, gambling trips, playing cards and dominoes, and just visiting with family. He left us all with so many memories from family vacations, holiday get togethers, attending grandkids recitals, sporting events and graduations to the simplest things as just being together. He was surrounded by so much love as he passed, peacefully into heaven, speaking to the Lord. His memory will live through us all until we see him again.
