Mass of Christian Burial
Obituary of Vito Luppino, Jr.
Our community lost a legend when Vito Luppino, Jr. passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday evening at the age of 54 years old. Vito was a lifelong resident of Madison. Graduating in 1986, Vito went to Madison High School where he excelled as an athlete in football, baseball and wrestling.
Vito is survived by his three sons, Vito Luppino, III, Dominick James Luppino & Joseph Samuel Luppino; one daughter, Ashley Christine Luppino; his mother, Dorothy Luppino (née McKeown); two brothers, Nicholas Luppino and his wife Georgie & John Luppino and his wife Nancy; four sisters, Rose Marie Bougas, Josephine Meyer, Antoinette Fredericks & Dorothy Keotzel and her husband Bob; three cherished grandsons, Darryn, Michael & Trayvonn; and many nieces, nephews, cousins & dear friends. Vito was a wonderful father, son, brother and friend. He loved his children so much and was happiest when they were all together.
Vito was predeceased by his father, Vito Luppino, Sr.; and his sister, Victoria Luppino.
Affectionately known as “Coach Vito”, “Big V” or simply “Vito”, he selflessly devoted a large part of his life to coaching and mentoring. He was an unpretentious man who was always approachable and ready to help his friends or anyone in need.
Vito coached football & wrestling at Madison High School and Bayley-Ellard High School. He was a longtime Madison Little League Coach and President of Madison Junior Football. More importantly than the wins and the championships, Vito valued the friendships he built along the way. Vito would boast of his former players, not only having success in sports, but most importantly, what they were doing in life. He will be remembered by generations of athletes.
Vito had a long career with the Borough of Madison and he was very proud to dedicate his life’s work to his hometown. He was the foreman of the Madison Sewer Department for many years and cherished the friendships he forged with many of his colleagues.
