PORTSMOUTH—Michael Alan Lipman, a longtime resident of Portsmouth, Virginia, died on November 15, 2022, while living in New York City.

He was born to his late parents, Ansel Lipman and Blanche Dubins Lipman, on July 15, 1953. Michael was a graduate of Churchland High School and a longtime member of Gomley Chesed Synagogue.

He was a huge fan of family and family celebrations, always eager to connect with relatives and friends, and ready to entertain with a story or joke. Michael was generous with his time and often brought food to those in need while working for various food banks. He was the main caretaker for his mother as her health declined with age.

Michael was well known in the community. He would make daily visits to local restaurants, often just getting a drink and chatting with residents he knew from his visits. He will be missed by his family, friends, and acquaintances.

Michael is survived by his brother and sister-in-law, Matthew and Elissa Lipman, and his sister Marylyn Lipman, along with his many cousins.

A graveside service was held at Gomley Chesed Cemetery and was officiated by Cantor Elihu Flax.
