OBITUARY - Edward Andrew Lapekas Jr. ---- Source: Herald Tribune from Dec. 5 to Dec. 6, 2017[47]

Edward Andrew Lapekas, Jr., was born in Battle Creek, Michigan, on April 16, 1943, to Elizabeth Yaw Lapekas and Edward Andrew Lapekas. Ed succumbed to cancer on December 1, 2017, in Sarasota, Florida, with Dana (Lillie) Lapekas, his wife of fifty years, and children, Anne Hill and Mark Lapekas, by his side. As was his way, he met the challenge of a cancer diagnosis and all that accompanies it with grace and dignity, while never losing his sense of humor or bypassing a chance to laugh and to savor the joys of family and life itself, large or small.
Dana and Ed divided their time seasonally between their homes on Walloon Lake in northern Michigan and in Longboat Key, Florida. Anne lives in Richmond, Virginia, with her husband, Jeff. She has three boys, William, Peter, and Nicholas Humble, and is step-mother to Connor and Julianna Hill. Mark lives in Chicago, Illinois, with his wife, Carolina and their two boys, Edward and Gabriel.
Ed's grandchildren gave him endless joy. He was and will always be a role model for them as a wonderful, devoted, husband, father, and grandfather and an all-around great human being, gentle but persistent in message. He was admired and valued as a sibling (to Jim, Ron, and Nancy and their families), an in-law ( Patty and Vickie), friend, neighbor, businessman, board member, golf companion, and more. Ed earned a BA from Albion College and an MBA from Wayne State University. He was drafted into the US Army in 1969, the day his daughter, Anne, was born. He was commissioned as an Artillery Officer after finishing Officer Candidate School and served one year in Viet Nam. He was awarded the Bronze Star.
During the course of their fifty-year marriage, Ed and Dana moved over twenty-five times and lived in many American cities, as well as in London, England and the Netherlands. As a result, they have a network of friends worldwide.
Professionally, Ed served in various roles in the packaging industry throughout his long career, culminating as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at American National Can until he retired in July of 2000. Ed has served on several boards and was currently a director of Silgan Holdings, Inc. This is his own brief list of his professional achievements. It is modest, as he was, and doesn't do justice to his stature among his peers and to his many achievements in the business world.
He served as President of the Walloon Lake Country Club, President of the Walloon Lake Association, and Vice-president of the Walloon Lake Trust and Conservancy. He was also a member of Longboat Key Club and Bird Key Yacht Club.
Ed's family knows his passions: grandchildren, family, collecting, Asian cooking, boating, and golf. He was also a serious gardener, as well as being a reader, a thinker, an observer, and an honest and valued resource to many.
Ed will be missed in the flesh but never forgotten in spirit. He exuded class but also humanity, generosity, and decency. A memorial in celebration of his life will be held in early summer on Walloon Lake, a place he so loved and worked to maintain its long-time viability as a place of pure and natural beauty. He will live on in all of us who knew him.
That said, these are the donations Ed chose, should you wish to honor his life in this way: The Walloon Lake Trust and Conservancy, The Salvation Army, A philanthropy of your choice.

Daniel "Danny" J. Lapikas of South Pymatuning Township, passed away at 6 a.m. Wednesday, June 22, 2016, in UPMC Hamot, Erie, with his wife at his side. He was 73. Danny was born May 27, 1943, in Sharon, a son of Stephen and Antoinette (Ferrara) Lapikas.
He was raised in Sharpsville, a town he dearly loved, and was a 1961 alumnus of Sharpsville High School. Following his graduation, he was employed by Reyers Shoe Store in Sharon and later worked for Sharon Steel's former Farrell plant and the former General American Transportation Corp., GATX plant, Masury. Danny was the public works director for the borough of Sharpsville for 15 years and served as a borough councilman. He purchased the Wooden Nickel on Main Street in the early 1980s and renamed the establishment Danny's. He later relocated to High Street, where he and his wife, Doris, owned and operated Danny's Country Inn until August of 2005, when the business was sold. They also owned Danny's Too in Greenville for 10 years before selling in February of 2007. Danny was a former member of St. Bartholomew Church, Sharpsville, and Knights of Columbus Joseph J. Fitzmartin Council 1446, Greenville.
A 32nd degree Mason, he was a member of Free and Accepted Masons Lodge 810, Hermitage. Zem Zem Shrine, Erie, and Scottish Rite's New Castle Consistory. An outdoorsman, he was an avid hunter, fisherman and golfer. He was a member and director of the former Sharon Country Club and a member of the former Greenville Country Club. He participated in, and won, many golf tournaments and had two holes-in-one throughout his career.
Danny was a dynamic individual who worked tirelessly behind the scenes for many social and civic organizations in the community and was always willing to help a worthy cause. He was founder of the Strimbu Gun Raffle and served on the Strimbu Memorial Fund's board of directors. He was a major supporter of Sharpsville athletics and sponsored numerous golf, bowling, softball and baseball teams. He also sponsored a racecar for Ruffo Motorsports for many years.
He was recognized as an honorary member by the Mercer County Hall of Fame for his many contributions to local athletics. Danny hosted two NFL fundraisers at his home to support a child in need, and his unwavering support for many other causes raised thousands of dollars during his lifetime.

Surviving are: his loving wife of more than 30 years, Doris (Fisher) Lapikas, at home, a son, David J. Lapikas, Hermitage, and two grandchildren whom he adored, Daniel Philip Lapikas and Noah David Lapikas.

Danny was preceded in death by: his parents, a sister, Mary Lynn Cole, his father- and mother-in-law, Ralph and Phyllis Fisher, and a brother-in-law, Larry Fisher.
