William J. Sipos, age 85, beloved husband of Susan Brown Sipos, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 9, 2019 with his loving family by his side. Bill was a longtime resident of Trumbull, most recently residing in Milford. Born on January 9, 1934 in Bridgeport, he was the son of the late Gabor and Elizabeth Jaszai Sipos. A U.S. Army Veteran who served with the 562nd Combat Engineers at Fort Richardson, Alaska. Upon release of service, Bill was a painting contractor for 50 years and was the owner of Bill Sipos and Son Painting.
He was an avid coin collector, loved watching the UCONN Lady Huskies, the New York Jets, enjoyed attending the Danbury Stock Car races and loved a good road trip. Above all things he was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He loved spending time with his family especially his grandchildren, who called him by his preferred nickname, "Ampie." The memories they shared will always live in their hearts.
