Samuel Harold Lipes
(11 Feb 1942 - 31 Oct 2020)

Newport News High School Class of 1960

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

 
   We have still more sad news today. Sammy Lipes, Band President of the Class of 1960, passed away at his home in Syracuse, New York on Saturday, October 31, 2020 at the age of 78. 

    He was the brother of the late Mildred Lipes Jones (07 June 1926 - 23 Apr 2013), Janice Lipes Hall, and  Bobby Lipes (12 Dec 1946 - 04 Oct 1986).


 From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 11/05/20, 8:41 PM:

Hi Carol:

... I wanted you to know that we lost another member of our class. I work part-time at Peninsula Funeral Home in Newport News and was sad to see the name of Sammy Lipes on the schedule when I went to work this afternoon. I was in elementary school, Woodrow Wilson, with Sammy and all through N.N.H.S. with him. Everyone liked him. He and Mary Ann Milne wrote our class song together.

The arrangements for Sammy are as follows: A Memorial Service is scheduled for Friday, November 13 at 10:00 a.m. at the funeral home with the burial at Greenlawn Cemetery, following the service. Sammy lived in New York for many years. It has been many years since he attended a reunion and I recall that at the last one, he had really developed a N.Y. accent. Sammy was one of the nicest guys I know...

Take care, my friend.

Fred Mays (60)

   Oh, Fred, I'm so very sorry to hear this! I often wondered what Sammy did following graduation. You have my deepest condolences on the loss of your classmate.

The Strife Is O'er, the Battle Done

Text: Anonymous Latin; translated by Francis Pott (1832-1909)
Music: Giovanni P. da Palestrina; arranged by W.H. Monk (1823-1889)
Tune: VICTORY, Meter: 888 with Alleluias
 

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
The strife is o'er, the battle done,
the victory of life is won;
the song of triumph has begun.
Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
The powers of death have done their worst,
but Christ their legions hath dispersed:
let shout of holy joy outburst.
Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
The three sad days are quickly sped,
he rises glorious from the dead:
all glory to our risen Head!
Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
He closed the yawning gates of hell,
the bars from heaven's high portals fell;
let hymns of praise his triumphs tell!
Alleluia!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Lord! by the stripes which wounded thee,
from death's dread sting thy servants free,
that we may live and sing to thee.
Alleluia!
