Joseph Peter Lopuszynski Obituary
Joseph Peter Lopuszynski, 87, of Hernando, Fla., passed away on Friday, March 10, 2017.
Joe was born on Aug. 27, 1929, in his family home on Ann Street in Rome, N.Y., to Michael and Marcella (Kedzierski) Lopuszynski, Polish immigrants who came to the United States through Ellis Island in the early 1900s. Joe and his wife, Anne, moved to Hernando 20 years ago from Rye, N.Y., where he and his family lived for 32 years. He retired from IBM as a finance manager after 32 years and was a U.S. Navy veteran.
Joe was Catholic by faith and attended the Transfiguration Elementary School in Rome before graduating from high school as a member of the Rome Free Academy's Class of 1947. He earned his bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School. He enjoyed golf, Duke basketball and cooking, with a particular fondness for preparing food from his Polish heritage. He was an avid basketball player in his youth and a member of the Kozick Oilers basketball team.
In addition to his parents, Joe was preceded in death by nine siblings: John, Katherine, Kathryn, Paul, Ann, Nicholas, Frank, Marion, and Walter. He leaves his wife of 55 years, Ada Anne (Livesey) Lopuszynski; two daughters: Marcella, of Hernando, Fla.; and Mary, of Basking Ridge, N.J.; two sons: Michael (Samantha), of Summit, N.J.; and David (Kim), of Holly Springs, N.C.; a brother: Tom (Eileen), of Ashtabula, Ohio; and was proud Dziadek to three grandchildren: Michael, Alexis, and Jack; and uncle to 29 nieces and nephews.
Friends are welcome to call at the Inverness Chapel of Hooper Funeral Homes on Friday, March 17, from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. A service of remembrance will be held at 11 a.m., immediately following the visitation.
