Music 22


Maurice Pippin

January 19, 1948 ~ July 22, 2018 (age 70)

Because of God's infinite "LOVE" of music, he gave a melody of music in the hearts of Damon and Mollie Faye Pippin, the composition of the life of Maurice Nathaniel Pippin who was born on January 19, 1948. Although his parents and siblings, Ellen, Damaris, Damon Jr., and Frederick Douglas proceeded him in death, his music continued to play on. His love of music continued when he received his formal education from Robert S. Abbott Elementary and Wendell Phillips High School, he loved family gatherings whereby he would sing and utilize his talent for singing. And sometimes even a joke or two. He was a jovial individual, so much so that he formed a singing group called the Five Crowns, which led to a recording entitled, " Just a Part of Life." Not only was he a singer, he was a hard and devoted factory worker, which he worked very diligently. The music continued to play, until he joined the International Miracle Crusade Church. When his music changed to "Long As I Got King Jesus, I Don't Need Nobody Else." His music took a drastic turn as he transitioned early one morning from earthly to heavenly. He leaves his everlasting melody to his loving and devoted family as a memory his sister, Faye Maxine Carroll of East Chicago, IN; brother Joseph Franklin of East Chicago, IN; Evelyn Wright of Chicago, IL; Patricia Marie Pippin; Linda Joy Davies and Dr. Veronica Ann (Ray) Williams all of East Chicago, IN and a host of nieces, nephews, many friends along with doctors, nurses, and a community of residents.
