The family of Reiny Lippert regret to announce his passing in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital on Sunday, July 25th, 2010 at the age of 57 years after a hard-fought battle with cancer. He is survived by his loving wife, Joy, to whom he was married for 32 ½ years, his two sons; Morgan of Vernon, B.C. and Cary of Coldstream, B.C., his brother; Harry (Sue) Lippert of Vernon, B.C. as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family members and friends.
Reiny was born on November 10th, 1952 and was a lifelong resident of Vernon. He was predeceased by his father Reinhold in 1979 and his mother Ida in 1991. Reiny was employed for 38 years as a heavy duty mechanic in the logging industry. He had a reputation up and down the valley as one of the best. Golf became Reiny’s passion. He enjoyed many rounds on local area courses and was a member of River Ridge Golf Course in Cherryville. Reiny loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, camping, riding his quad and spending time with his family.
In respecting Reiny’s wishes, he was cremated and a private family Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Reiny to the North Okanagan Hospice Society 3506 27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C. V1T 1S4.
