Lawrence Lipkin Obituary
Lawrence Lipkin

Lawrence Lipkin, age 93, accountant, appraiser and proud World War II veteran, died January 18, 2019.

Understated and elegant, this consummate businessman loved with all his heart, gave to all and believed totally in himself and those around him. As an accountant Larry devoted over 50 years to clients big and small, guiding their business strategy and caring about them as friends. As a Professor at UIC, he taught accounting and finance and coauthored the book The Accountants' Handbook of Formulas and Tables through three editions. As a resident of Downers Grove and Chicago, Larry loved our great City- from the symphony to theaters big and small, from a good martini at Booth One to Cubs games with Judi. And, always, the view of North Avenue beach and the lake from our condo.

Beloved husband of Judi Strauss Lipkin. Loving father of Lori (Charles Reilly) Lipkin, Lisa Lipkin and Linda (John) Gillies. Dear step-father of Hans (Susan) Hochreiter, J rgen (Billie) Hochreiter, Lori (Lawrence) Feldman and Lisa (Paul) Niser. Proud grandfather of Matthew Gillies, Kevin Gillies, Jacob Feldman, Joshua Feldman, Andrew Niser and Ethan Niser. Dear brother of the late Grace Rackoff and the late Ruth (the late Irving) Brazen.

Services were held. Memorials to the Salvation Army, 5040 N. Pulaski Rd., Chicago, IL 60630, www.salarmychicago.org would be appreciated.
