Thomas F. Lipsett Jr.

Thomas F. Lipsett Jr., 79, of Plymouth, passed away peacefully at home on June 13 surrounded by love. He was the beloved husband of Marcia “Sue” (Lapworth) Lipsett and the loving father of Matthew Lipsett and Thomas Chiusano. He was the loving “Pops” to his granddaughter, Sophia Chiusano.

Tom was born in Camden, New Jersey, on September 21, 1944, to the late Thomas and Sarah (Vance) Lipsett. He was raised in Bellmawr, New Jersey and graduated from Triton Regional High School in 1962. Living near Philadelphia he appeared on American Bandstand numerous times.

Tom joined the U.S.M.C. on July 11, 1966, at the age of 22. He honorably served his country, including two tours in Vietnam. He was very proud of his time in the Marine Corps.

He was a longtime member of the Plymouth V.F.W. and for many years he enjoyed being part of their honor guard and marching in parades. He and Sue met many wonderful people through the V.F.W and we consider many of them V.F.W. family,

A special thank you to Skip Martin and Jamie Hamblin for recently organizing a fundraiser for our family. It was truly a magical day for Tom.
