Zachary Dennis Lipinski, age 30, of Gladstone passed away on Friday, March 5, 2021 at St. Francis Hospital in Escanaba following a battle with cancer.
Zachary was born on May 21, 1990 in Escanaba, the son of Jeffery and Susan (Meyer) Lipinski. He graduated from the Gladstone High School and Bay college. He had a great sense of humor, a kind heart, strong work ethic, and was as tough as they come. He worked for Elmer’s County Market for 14 years, beginning at the age of 16. He also worked for WP Beverages (Pepsi cola) for 10 years and was fortunate enough to work with his father and brothers for many of those years. He was also lucky enough to meet the love of his life (Laena) at one of those jobs. He enjoyed hunting, softball, driving around in his truck, and going out to camp. Last but not least, Zach deeply loved his two cats Pearl and Sushi.
Zachary is survived by his parents; his brother, Lance of Madison, WI, twin brother, Jack (Holly) of Rapid River; nephew, AJ, nieces, Sophie and Sadie; maternal grandmother, Marlene Meyer of Farwell, MI; aunts, Shari (Todd) Hutchins of Sanford, MI and Vicky (Kevin) McPhail of Freeport, FL; uncles, Ken (Connie) Meyer of Interlochen, MI, and Tony (Lisa) Meyer of Irons, MI, six cousins and his fiance’, Laena Iishiba.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Dennis Meyer and paternal grandparents, Al and Kathy Lipinski
