Chris Lypaczewski, P. Eng.
June 28, 1954 – August 4, 2019
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Chris Lypaczewski. Chris was born in Montreal on June 28, 1954 and died peacefully after a short battle with brain cancer at Methodist Hospital in Omaha on August 4, 2019. Left to mourn is his beloved wife of thirty-one years, Gina (Ricci). He will be greatly missed by his son, Nicholas; his daughter, Angela (Keith Costello); his granddaughter, Grace; his mother, Mary; sisters, Mary (Gary Kielo) and Claire (Dan Mallette); brother, Paul (Carole Moore); nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
Some are fortunate to heed their calling in life, and for Chris that was civil engineering thanks to the influence of his late father, Felix Lypaczewski. He was a long-time, dedicated employee of Kiewit both in Canada and the United States. Chris was a very good man who loved his family dearly and worked hard to provide for them.
The Family will receive friends on Friday, August 9th from 5pm to 7pm at the West Center Chapel, followed by Vigil Service at 7pm. MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL: Saturday, August 10th at 10am at Mary Our Queen Catholic Church, 3405 S. 118th St. Private Interment. Memorials are suggested to Engineers Without Borders-USA or Engineers Without Borders-Canada.
