IN HONOR OF JOHN JOSEPH IPOCK (1957-2021)
Please join us for a service of remembrance to honor the life and memory of John J. Ipock. In considering the safest way to honor him during the pandemic, we have decided to hold a drive-through memorial experience at Jonathan Ipock’s home, 1661 Lincoln Boulevard, Whiting, NJ. 08759 on Saturday, January 30th, 2021, at 1 pm. You may choose to come for the drive-through experience only or you may choose to stay afterward and visit with the family. A tent will be set up outdoors for those who wish to visit with the family after driving through the memorial. We ask that all who visit remember to wear masks and observe social distance. Please feel free to bring a memory of your own to include as part of the memorial.
