John Dennis Tirpak, age 65, passed away Saturday, September 5, 2015 after a long illness. John was born on June 20, 1950 in Painesville, Ohio. Preceded in death by his parents John T. and Ruth (Adams) Tirpak.

John moved from Ohio in the late 1970’s and settled in Arizona. He was a good man, fought a good fight and always loved to joke around. His sarcastic humor was his trademark and one of the things his family and friends loved most. John loved any beach, anywhere, his Harley, Jimmy Buffet, golfing, baseball, football and all sports. He was blessed to have so many wonderful friends. We were blessed to have him in our lives. Farewell to the Captain, may he rest in peace.
