December 8, 1925 - March 5, 2022
Born in Cincinnati in 1925, Irv Zipperstein was the youngest child of Jacob and Sarah Zipperstein. He was pre-deceased by his parents and brothers (Maurice, Abe, and Sam) and survived by his sister Mary Schneider. A graduate of Hughes High School, Mr. Zipperstein’s college career at the University of Cincinnati was interrupted by WWII. He served in the US Army Air Corp as a radar technician and attained the rank of Sergeant. Following the war, he re-enrolled in college, earning two degrees—a Bachelor’s and a J.D. from the University of Cincinnati Law School. Upon his graduation and after passing the bar exam, Irv married—what was to be—his lifelong sweetheart, Sandra Berman, in 1950. And they were happily married for over 71 years. They relocated to Dayton, Ohio where Irv briefly worked for the Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base as legal counsel. Soon after, he opened his own private practice. He served a wide variety of clients in Dayton for over 50 years. A consummate professional and a true “lawyer’s lawyer,” Irv took great pride in his craft and genuinely cared for his clients. Outside of his profession, Mr. Zipperstein was very active in civic affairs, the local Jewish community, and an avid supporter of Israel. He had leadership roles at Beth Abraham Synagogue as well as many other organizations. Irv is survived by his beloved wife, Sandy, their three children: Debi (Shmuel) Lahav, Jon (Ellen) Zipperstein, and Margie (Bob) Stayton, nine grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. Irv will be remembered by those who love him for his integrity, humor, musicality, and optimism. He was a family man through and through and will be missed dearly.
