Leslie H. Lipps

KINGSVILLE —

Leslie H. Lipps, age 61, of Ashtabula, went home to be with his Lord on Sunday, May 11, 2014, at Ashtabula County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, surrounded by his family.

He was born Oct. 7, 1952, in Ashtabula, the son of the late Layton and Glenna (Fetters) Lipps. Leslie grew up in Williamsfield, but resided in Ashtabula for 41 years. He graduated from Pymatuning Valley High School Class of 1970 and then attended Ohio Northern College. He married the love of his life and soul mate Beverly Jones, on May 19, 1973, in Whitehall, Ohio.

Leslie was an active member of the Fellowship Bible Church while it was in service and later became part of the family at the Pentecostal Church of God. One of his most favorite things were cars, which led him into owning and running L&B Auto Sales for many years. Leslie was a very active and social person. He loved everyone, and thought everybody was good; no one was a stranger to him. His contagious laughter and smile will be missed by all who knew him. But most of all he adored his wife, children, and grandchildren.

He is survived by his loving wife of almost 41 years, Beverly; daughters, LaShawna Guijosa and Larissa Farrar of Ashtabula; son, Luke Lipps of Ashtabula; sister, Nola (Larry) Vlock of Jefferson; and grandchildren, Cristian, Analicia, and Edward “Lil Eddie”, and one on the way.

Leslie was preceded in death by his brothers, Lee “Bob” Lipps and Leroy Lipps; his parents; and his faithful companion, his dog “Penny.”

A Celebration of Life will be held 7 p.m., Thursday, May 15th, at ZABACK-WILLIAMS-DUCRO FUNERAL HOME, 500 W. Prospect Road, Ashtabula, with the Rev. Kenneth Roberts, pastor of Pentecostal Church of God, officiating.

Friends may call at the Funeral Home on Thursday from 5 p.m. until the time of Service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his name to the family.

Special thanks to the staff at ACNRC and Hospice of the Western Reserve, for their excellent care for Leslie and the care and compassion shown to the family. It was greatly appreciated. Thank you, The Lipps Family.
