Michael F. Cipolla

AGE: 69 • Harbeson

Michael F. Cipolla, age 69, of Harbeson, DE went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, November 09, 2016, at home surrounded by his family, after a long struggle with kidney disease. He was born Wednesday, September 24, 1947 in Chadds Ford, PA, son of the late Giovanni and Anna (DeCecco) Cipolla.

Mr. Cipolla married the love of his life, Susan (Sewell) Cipolla on April 4, 1970, and thus began their family.

Mr. Cipolla enjoyed being a softball umpire, snowbirding trips to Florida, surf-fishing, and volunteering at the Elks Lodge in Lewes, DE. His most cherished times, however, were those spent with his grandchildren, all of whom he adored. He was a devoted and loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, and he will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to know him.

Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live" (John 11:25).
