I haven't been posting lately because my dad, William J. Lupinacci Jr., passed away late Friday night.
If you ever wondered how I started debating the issues of the day, that would have been over the Vietnam War with my father who was a lifelong Republican (we pretty much stayed on the opposite side of every issue for all the ensuing years). I couldn't have had better training because my dad was the smartest man I ever met and you needed to stick to facts and logic if you wanted to argue with him.
He graduated early from Schenley High School and had his pick of full scholarships from then Carnegie Tech (where he studied Electrical Engineering) and Duquesne University.
He was a small business owner in Greensburg for many years and worked for the Catholic Church -- to which he was devoted -- later in life.
He's going to be missed terribly by his family, friends and former co-workers.
Love you, Dad!
