Harry Walter Karpinski, age 89 of Warren, passed away April 12, 2019. He was born in Detroit on May 14, 1929; the son of Walter and Anne (nee Lesiak) Karpinski.

Just following World War II, Harry served as a Photostat Operator in the United States Army from July 14, 1947 until his honorable discharge on May 31, 1949. Following his service he worked predominantly in the automotive industry.

On July 28, 1951, he married Rose and they moved to the suburbs in 1960. He became a “jack of all trades” and helped family and friends with most any indoor or outdoor project. Harry was independent and quite particular, but he was always only a phone call away for family and friends to make a request for help. Harry loved fishing, hunting and boating. He also enjoyed attending family events, especially weddings which gave him an opportunity to dance the night away.

Beloved husband of Rose for 67 years. Dear father of Doris Karpinski, Gerald (Stephanie) Karpinski, Darlene (Joe) DeStefanis and Debbie Karpinski. Treasured grandfather of Ken and Steve Baginski; Benjamin, Michelle and Rachael Karpinski; Paul (Veronica) and Kevin DeStefanis; and Chris Ustick. Proud great-grandfather of three. Dear brother of Evelyn (the late Edward) Fedak, Lawrence (the late Dolores) Karpinski, Robert (Francis) Karpinski. Harry is also survived by many caring nieces, nephews and in-laws.
