Obituary: Andrew F. Kipar

Andrew Fred Kipar, 47, of Wilmington, died Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in a tragic work accident.

Andrew was born September 29, 1969 in Morristown, NJ, son of Brunhilde Kipar and the late Fred Kipar.

The love Andrew had for his beloved wife and children was unbounding.  He was a loving father, husband, brother-in-law, brother, and son- in-law.  He will be remembered for his good nature and kind heart.  

Andrew and his brother Oliver both followed in their father’s footsteps in becoming masons by trade.  Andrew and his family moved to Carolina Beach in 2004.  With his strong work ethic and dedication, he began AFK masonry and built it into a successful masonry business.   He also used his masonry skills to help others through charity.  

He was a passionate outdoorsman, constantly fishing, hunting, and boating. He loved to spend time with his family and his dogs.  You could often find Andrew cruising the water way on the SEA Smiles.  He also loved to grill out and entertain with friends at this home, with ABBA playing in the background.   He touched many lives and will be missed by all.  

In addition to his mother, he is survived by his loving wife, Jennifer Kipar; son, Matthew Kipar; daughter, Lauren Kipar; sister, Christina Cole; brother, Oliver Kipar; niece and nephews, Devin, Tommy Dylan, and Robbie; brother-in-law, Peter Jakubeit (Aimee); mother and father-in-law, Anna and Paul Jakubeit; and special friends, Chris and Shannon Coby Smiles.

A Memorial Mass will be held at 9:00 am Monday, June 19, 2017, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. The family will greet friends at the church following the service.
