Jeffrey D. Pipeling, 43, of Hamden, formerly of Plainville, left his family and friends heartbroken when he left us unexpectedly and far too soon on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. He passed naturally, while riding his ATV and fulfilling his love for the nature surrounding him.
Born in New Britain on April 9, 1978, he was the younger of two children to David Pipeling of Plainville and the late Laura (Jacaruso) Pipeling. Jeff was a 1996 graduate of Plainville High School where he excelled at soccer and made many lifelong friends. He had a love for anything and everything outdoors from childhood and beyond. His big heart for Mother Nature led him to serve as an Outward Bound instructor and on staff at Pilgrim Pines & Camp Squanto. He had a special affinity for winter sports, especially ski trips, road trips and camping adventures with his children. Jeff had a passion for renewable energy, a spirit for sustainability and a keen business sense as the Director of Business Development for CTEC Solar, where he created many meaningful relationships and secured countless solar projects. At home, he proudly displayed his Italian heritage working hard to grow his yearly veggie garden and cooking endless bowls of pasta inspired by his Nana and Nonnon’s Jacaruso family recipes. Jeff put his children first in everything he did, as his proudest role was being an awesome Dad. Remembered for his passion for life, patriotism, generosity and great love for his family, he will be ridiculously missed by the countless lives he touched.
In addition to his father, he leaves his children, Nathan and Emma; his former wife, Hayley; his sister, Melissa Blaser, her husband David and their children, Vivienne and Duke; many aunts, uncles, cousins and an abundance of dear friends.
