Mirko Stipanov

May 5, 2009 2:44 PM

Mirko Stipanov of Montauk died on April 10 at Good Shepherd Hospice in Port Jefferson, after suffering a fall in January which led to a coma. He was 78.

Born May 1, 1930, in Preko, Croatia, to Danica and Frane Stipanov, he worked in landscaping and maintenance.

He is survived by a son, Nado Stipanov of Amagansett; two daughters, Nena Stuckart of Montauk and Emy Kozanitis of Greece; a brother, Vinko Stipanov of Croatia; and three grandsons, Anthony Stipanov, Felice Stipanov and Alex Stipanov; and two granddaughters, Sara Olga Stuckart and Carli Stuckart—whom he didn’t get to meet because she was born while she was in a coma.

He was predeceased by his wife, Olga Stipanov.

The family received visitors on April 13 at the Yardley & Pino Funeral Home in East Hampton. Interment will be in his home country of Croatia.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Montauk Ambulance Squad, 12 Flamingo Avenue, Montauk, NY 11954, or East End Hospice, P.O. Box 1048, Westhampton Beach, NY 11978 would be appreciated by the family.
