Robert "Bob" Haines Lipman

AGE: 61 • Long Valley

Robert "Bob" Haines Lipman, 61, of Long Valley, NJ passed away on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 peacefully at the 300-year old historical home he restored. Bob was born on January 2, 1952 in Mount Holly, NJ.

He lived in Long Valley for the past 37 years. Bob was the President and owner of Homewright Builders. He also was an E.M.T. for the Hunterdon Development Center in Clinton, NJ for 10 years. Bob served as the president of the Somerset and Morris County Builders Association in 1987 and was a member of the North Shrewsbury Ice Boat and Yacht Club.

He also volunteered as a ski patrol at Camelback Mountain. Bob's passions were too vast to count but include: sailing, skiing, iceboating, traveling, writing essays, playing classical flute and guitar, skydiving and above all, spending time with family.

Bob is survived by his beloved wife of 39 years, Mimi Lipman; his children Jessica Caris and Braden Lipman; his grandchildren Devon and Gigi; his father Sejfi Protopapa; his brothers Bekim and Joel; his sisters Judy, Beth, Hana, Ellen, Drita, and Amy; and his beloved Jack Russell Terriers, Faddie and Fancy. He was predeceased by his mother Barbara, his stepfather Nathan and stepmother Heljo.

Visitation will be held from 1-3pm on Sunday, June 23, 2013 at the William J. Leber Funeral Home, 15 Furnace Road (Corner of Rt. 206), Chester, NJ (908) 879-3090. A 3pm memorial service will follow at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers and donations, Bob would like his legacy to live on by asking that friends and family do an anonymous kind deed for someone in need. Those who knew Bob will understand that this was the ethos he lived by: living boldly and vibrantly while helping others, without seeking praise or reciprocity.
