Charles “Chuck” Lipsey was born in Chicago, IL to David and Hilda Lipsey. Chuck and his older brother, Richard, grew up in Des Moines, IA. Chuck graduated from Roosevelt High School and Northwestern University. He then served in the Honor Guard for the United States Army guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington and within the White House. Chuck married Patricia (nee Hoffman) in Kansas City, MO in 1958, upon who he doted for the next 64 years. After multiple moves during the first 14 years of their marriage, they settled in Westwood Village with their 3 sons in 1972 and once their children were grown, moved to Century City where he lived the remainder of his life. He built a career in the furniture business that included owning his own manufacturing firm.

Chuck was preceded in death by his parents and brother. He is survived by his devoted wife Patricia, sons and daughters-in-law Craig and Irene, David and Shayne, Tommy and Edith, 3 grandchildren, Erin, Matthew and Jason, 7 nieces and nephews (and their spouses), and 9 great nieces and nephews. Chuck was a loyal friend and cherished his many friendships that developed during school and over his long career. He was particularly proud that he maintained several life-long friendships dating back to kindergarten. Playing golf, attending sporting events, going out to eat and traveling with friends and family were passions of his. He especially enjoyed cruising with Patricia and rooting for his beloved Chicago Cubs. He touched many lives and regaled people with his many stories and he will be missed dearly.

Services will be held at Hillside Memorial Park on Wednesday September 7th at 2pm.
