Alexander Paul Lapinski, age 67, of Hudson, passed away Wednesday, September 18, 2019. Al was born on January 7, 1952, the son of Edmund and Alice (Boyle) Lapinski.

His love of sailing and traveling were well known to his family and friends as well. He also loved to spend every moment he could with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Al will always be remembered by his wife, Colleen; children, Carrie (Darren) Krueger, Jamie (Shane) Madrinich, Daniel (Lindsay) Lapinski, Megan (Terry Jarvis Jr.) Lapinski; grandchildren, Zyanya Arce, Madisyn Krueger, Adryana Krueger, Taylor Madrinich, Zachary Madrinich, Azariah Lapinski, Keziah Lapinski, Jasper Lapinski, Hadassah Lapinski, Tobiah Lapinski, Onyx Lapinski; Siblings, Patrick Lapinski, Phillip (Mary) Lapinski and Joanne Bennett.

      Sorry to hear about your dads passing. If he was as cool as you the world is missing one great guy. All the best for you and your family in these sad times.
      Jesus and family

    • Dearest Colleen and the rest of the Lapinski family… I have no magic words to take away your pain. I have no special potion to make you feel better. All I can say is that Al spoke of you all – all the time. He loved his family, you were all so fortunate to create memories that will last forever. Relish those, there will be a time when you smile and enjoy them. I had the pleasure of working with Al for many years back in the RAM Mobile Data days and we sure had a lot of fun when we got to spend time together for work meetings. Heaven has a new angel.
      My deepest sympathies,
      Karen Brunges

    • My heart aches and I am at an absolute loss for words. I promise to give you a big hug next time I see you. Colleen, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Al, was such a fun loving life of the party guy. I enjoyed getting to know him over the years and sharing our love for the Packers. Many good times and many memories!

      So sorry for your loss,


    • Jamie, Danny, Carrie, your families, Colleen and Megan, and all of the family and friends of Alex I am sorry for your loss. Reveille: The Military use this everyday for wakening soldiers to a new day, a new beginning. Winston Churchill did not believe there were endings, only new beginnings. He believed this so much so that Winston had Reveille played at the end of his funeral-a new beginning; and so it be for Alex. For all of the family and friends of Alex may the good Lord:
      Walk in front of you to guide you; walk alongside of you to befriend you; walk behind you to encourage you; walk above you to watch over you; and be within you to give you peace. Especially now in your time of loss and sorrow, and for all of the days to come.
      RIP Alex……. Dennis Cummings

    • Oh I am so sorry for your loss. I can not even begin to say how grateful I was for you and your dad after Tim died. Do not know what I would have done. I am sure I was not the only person he helped out in his life. Seemed to me he did a lot.

      Again so sorry.
