SERGEANT HERBERT E. LIPPINCOTT

Sergeant Herbert Elias Lippincott, 56, of Jefferson Hills, PA, entered into God’s Heavenly Kingdom, Monday, July 3, 2023. He was born December 12, 1966, at Spangdahlem Air Force Base in Bitburg, Germany. He was the son of the late TSGT Herbert H. and Margaret A. (Grogan) Lippincott. He was a member of the Union Baptist Church, Monessen, PA, where he was a former member of the Trustee Board. Herbert, also affectionately known as Herb, Herby and the infamous “Red Shoes” or “Shoes,” was a 1985 graduate of Monessen High School, where he performed well academically, played the Tuba in the band and excelled in sports, especially football and baseball. He was branded with the name “Red Shoes,” because red was his favorite color and he just had to wear red cleats while playing sports! Herb’s “Red Shoes” traveled with him to Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania on a partial football scholarship, majoring in Business Management. In 1987, Herb enlisted in the United States Army (Reserve) training as an Electrical Power Line and Logistics Specialist. In 2010, he graduated with honors, 2nd in his class, from Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, as a Biomedical Equipment Technician. Before retiring from the US Army at 20 years, Sergeant First Class Herbert E. Lippincott would be deployed to Kuwait, Iraq, Afganistan and Kosovo. During Herb’s career as a Biomedical Specialist, he furthered his education and training, acquiring 10 additional Bio-med certifications. He was most thankful and proud to be a part of the team that installed and equipped the new operating rooms at Forbes Regional Hospital, Monroeville, PA. Herb was currently employed by Allegheny Health Network. He was the Adjutant with American Legion Post 212 Donora, PA. In addition to his achievements, Herb will be remembered as an avid fisherman, golfer, pool player, dart player and most of all “Grill Master”! Herb loved to cook, and would grill in any kind of weather. Herb’s exuberant, charming, witty personality, his sense of humor, his smile that could light up your heart…is why everyone wanted to be in his company. Yes, Herby truly had a “Zest for Life”!

In addition to his parents, Herb was preceded in death by his brother, Harry S. Lippincott.

Herb leaves to cherish his memory, his high school sweetheart, loving and devoted wife, Denise Zdravecky Lippincott, whom he would have been married to 19 years on July 24, 2023, their children; Elishia, Eliah and Elias Lippincott, his daughters; Lauren and Janae Evans, Taylor Kovacs and Falesha Sapko, sons; Tyler Wickerham and Kaelen Koontz, his loving sister Mia J.
