Dear Sharon,
I just found out today about Ed. I am shocked and deeply saddened. Ed was always so caring and concerned and I looked so forward to our St. Patrick's Day luncheon at the Deli. Ed knew what it truly meant to be a friend. To you, your children and grandchildren, please accept my deepest sympathy. Ed will be greatly missed. True gentlemen like him are extremely rare. God Bless you and God Bless Ed.

Ed Hipke was a good friend. We were deeply sadden to learn of his passing. Jan and I extend our sympathies to Sharon. Our heartfelt condolences go out to her, Heather, David, and the grandchildren. May they be granted the solace necessary to heal the loss of a husband, father, and grandfather.

Personally, Ed Hipke and I shared some aspects of commonality. We were both graduates of Milwaukee Country Day School. We were fortunate to be exposed to an educational opportunity that emphasized the achievement of excellence. Ed and I often reminisced about this period of our adolescence realizing in retrospect how much the experience of attending MCDS had on the direction of our lives.

The other common aspect we shared involved successful careers in the field of finance. Ed commenced his career with R. F. Newman & Co. at approximately the time I began my affiliation of thirty-five years with Paine Webber.
Eventually Ed formed his own investment advisory firm, Hipke Investment Co., which not surprisingly turned out to be a very successful venture. Ed's love of the business was a life long cause. And so it was up to the very end, and I am sure that Ed never really gave retirement a serious thought. Ironically as we all age in years we seemingly gain a sense of immortality.

Ed valued his friends. As a testament to this fact, he started the tradition of the Monday Luncheon Group, which consisted of four to as many as six usual attendees who joined together at what was to become the favorite venue of choice, the Centennial Bar & Grille. Ed was usually the most punctual. I can well remember walking in, and there he would be with a perceptible smile and engrossed in conversation as he looked up to inquire what was the excuse this time for being late again.

As I now recollect, it was these friendships that evolved largely because of the desire on the part of one person who valued the bond of fellowship. This in deed says a lot about the character of this man, and his sense of what was respectful of one another that guided his moral compass. While his religious beliefs were his guiding light, his family was the cornerstone of his being. Ed will be missed, but rest assured the tradition that he began will be perpetuated in honor of his lasting memory.

From waaay back when on Barnett Lane (1950's) , we have known, respected and enjoyed being with Ed (and Sharon). We celebrate Ed's life completed as we offer our most sincere condolences to Sharon, Heather and David---and of course, to their grandchildren who will surely miss his wit, insight, humor, love, and devotion....all the while treasuring memories of their wonderful, loving grandfather.
