Thomas Lipman

Thomas Lipman of Waukegan, IL died peacefully on April 26, 2022 at the age of 88. He was born in Winnetka, IL. He graduated from New Trier high school and The University of Colorado, where he enrolled with the ROTC and joined the Navy. He became a pilot and took pride in his carrier-based certification. He enjoyed a long career as a stock broker and held a seat on the Chicago Board of Trade. He was a trained pianist as well as an ardent supporter and fan of Ravinia his entire life. Tom was gregarious, loquacious and generous to a fault. As an avid reader, he would read many newspapers daily and clip articles (and underline!) for friends and family. He is predeceased by his brother Marc and his parents Charles and Gussie Lipman. He is survived by his son Chad and daughter in law Leesa as well as a multitude of very close friends and family (and his original '75 yellow Corvette). A celebration of his life will take place at a later date.
