04/08/2020 - Edward Hirshman - Ski Roundtop - Passed Today
It is with great sadness that we are sharing the news in the passing of Edward F (Fast Eddie) Hirshman. Eddie passed away Tuesday afternoon with his wife and daughter by his side. Eddie was a great friend and mentor to many of us in his 52 years of membership in the National Ski Patrol, his nine years of working with the Wounded Warrior Patrol and his work with local veterans’ events. Many of us were ‘eddieized’ over the years as he helped shape the future of the NSP. Whether it was as an instructor, TE, IT, or an officer, he always had a sense of who to work with and develop.

10-30-2017 Charles "Chuck" E. Lippincott "89"
Member of Camelback Ski Patrol
This is Kim Connell Hale, Chuck Lippincott's granddaughter. Charles passed away with me next to him on Monday after having a taste of some single malt scotch and smoked salmon as he listened to the bag pipes, and some Mozart. We had a special relationship and he lived with his great-grand kids for the last 8 years and had even more magical times after his wife passed. Grandpa was tough as nails and I never met a man with more class, wit and pride. I have forever said that if I live half of the life that grandpa did, I will have lived a rich life.
Grandpa had always requested cremation and we are working on logistics for a memorial that celebrates his life.
Charlie Lippincott was a member of the National Ski Patrol for over 60 years. Joining just after World War II, he patrolled at Split Rock Lodge and then helped form the Big Boulder Ski Patrol. When his job took him to Boston, he spent several years patrolling at Gunstock, and then returned to Big Boulder in the mid-70s, staying for another 25 years. He finished his patrolling career at Camelback. He was a Senior Patroller and was awarded a Yellow Merit Star for his service.
