Charles “Charlie” Angelo Lippi, 86, of Milford, entered into eternal rest on Monday, December 20th, 2021 in hospice at Griffin Hospital with his loving family by his side. Born in the Bronx, NY on October 24, 1935, Charlie was the son of Italian parents Charles and Mary (Pizanno) Lippi. Charlie graduated from Theodore Roosevelt High School class of ‘52, and then went on to achieve a degree in Engineering from Hunter College. He began his career at the IBM Research Center in NY then later took a position at Combustion Engineering. During this time, he married his longtime sweetheart Rosemary Margiotta, having been together since they were 12 and 13 years old. He also served in the New York National Guard from 1954 until an honorable discharge in 1960. The family then made the transition to Monroe, CT, with a job opportunity for Charlie at United Technologies, where they began their new life. After 35 years of service, he retired from the corporate world but continued to be on the boards of Daisy Hill and Baldwin Station Associations.
Since childhood, Charlie has had a love for building and flying model RC airplanes, becoming an active member of the Indian Ledge, White Hills Eagles, and RCCC modeling clubs. He was also a die-hard NY Yankee and Giant fan and always let you know it. In addition, Charlie was always willing to share his music talents with family and friends, playing bass guitar in the infamous group, “The Wannabees”. Charlie is survived by his adoring wife Rosemary of 65 years; loving sisters Diane (husband Dick) and Adeline (late husband Frank); devoted children Donna (Clarence), Chris, and Lisa; cherished grandchildren Dana (Jon), Jessie (Dylan), Christy, Lorrissa (Kevin), Nick, and Matt; and precious great grandchildren Ali, Emmett, Hayden, Easton, and June. We love you Papa. Due to the rise in numbers of Covid-19, the family will hold services in private. A celebration of life will be held later. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Alzheimer’s Association, or Connecticut Hospice in memory of him.
