Ralph C. DiPesa

Ralph C. DiPesa, an award-winning Mechanical Tool Designer and extraordinary artist and sculptor, passed away peacefully on December 29, 2020 at Mass General Hospital following a lengthy illness at the age of 97. Born in Boston in 1923, he was the devoted son of the late Michael and Josephine (Sacco) DiPesa. Ralph faithfully served his country in the United States Army in Europe and North Africa during World War II. Upon his return from active duty, he relocated to Revere and attended the Boston Trade School before embarking on his career as an aircraft engine mechanical designer with General Electric in Everett, where he worked for nearly forty years. While at GE, Ralph was honored by his peers with several awards, including Tool Designer of the Year.

Upon his retirement in 1987, he fulfilled his passion for the arts by devoting his life to painting, sculpting and studies on the philosophy of life. Several of his sculptures won first-prize awards at the Topsfield Fair. He and his wife Dorothy were also original group members of the Revere Society for Cultural & Historic Preservation, Inc. (RSCHP). Postcard reprints of his famous “Revere Beach Gazebo” painting raised significant funds for the organization. Ralph was a brilliant and sensitive family man who always shared the benefit of his wisdom with his family and friends. He made the world a better place for which we are all indebted through his extraordinary life and experience.

He remained a lifelong resident of Revere, and is survived by Dorothy (Higgins), his beloved wife of 70 years, and his children, Ralph (Skip) and his wife Cheryl of Swampscott, MA, Stephen, of Revere, MA and Attorney Richard and his wife Lorene of Amesbury, MA.
