GHENT—Kevin Christopher Lippert, 63, passed away March 29 in the comfort of his Ghent home after complications from a second battle with brain cancer.

Born January 20, 1959 in Leeds, his family moved to Tennessee where he taught himself to play the piano. He began performing at the age of 6 and wrote his first composition at age 8. When his family moved to Ohio, he continued playing and studied with Dr. Foy Kohler. He performed concerts and enjoyed playing for the remainder of his life.

Though he was encouraged to become a concert pianist, he attended Princeton University with an interest in medicine then studied history and philosophy of science.

He graduated magna cum laude, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and received a master’s degree from the School of Architecture.

In 1981, while still attending Princeton, he saw a need for his peers and he to have access to a rare 1840 book, Paul Letarouilly’s Edifices de Rome Moderne. He made copies of it and they were in high demand. Princeton Architectural Press (PAPress) was born and its Reprint Series continues to make rare volumes on architecture accessible and affordable to a wider audience. He moved the company to New York City in 1985.

He sold the company to a German publishing group then later bought back his stake in PAPress. Looking for a new partner, Mr. Lippert sold PAPress to Chronicle Books and he was hired as its publisher and president. He moved PAPress to Hudson and remained with the company until 2019.

Mr. Lippert loved cooking, dining, biking and hiking. He couldn’t start his day without several cups of espresso. He enjoyed two weeks in Maine every summer for more than 30 years.

He built friendships wherever he went and valued and maintained them. What he loved most was his family. He spoke to his parents once a week or more and was a proud parent of three children.

He is survived by: his mother, Maureen Rudzik of Oakville, Ontario, Canada; his father and stepmother, Dr. Ernest and Judy Lippert of Toledo, Ohio; his sister, Kari; wife, Rachel and his children, Christopher, Cooper and Kate.
