John Michael Lipe

John Michael Lipe, age 71, of Old Fort, North Carolina, went to be with his Heavenly Father on the evening of Tuesday, November 16, 2021 at Autumn Care of Marion.


A native of McDowell County, he was born on August 12, 1950 to the late Gilbert Lipe and Frances Thomason Lipe.

John worked in law enforcement and retired as a Correctional Officer. He was a jokester who was blessed with an incredible sense of humor. He was an avid fan of baseball who also enjoyed tinkering. John will be remembered as being a friend to everybody. He was a great father and grandfather.

He is survived by his two sons, Eric Lipe and wife Christy and Joshua Lipe; five grandchildren, Wesley Lipe, Chase Lipe, Avery Lipe, Adley Lipe, and Addison Lipe; two siblings, GG Lipe and wife Julie and Myrna Greene; and his former wife and best friend, Kathy Allison.

In accordance with his wishes, no services are planned.
