Peter Flipse, who served on Point Pleasant Borough Board of Education in the 1960s, died on January 4.  He was 92.

Flipse was appointed to the school board in late 1960 after Ervin Gloeckner resigned.  He won a 1961 race for a three-year term after defeating Point Pleasant Taxpayers League president Peter Arlauckas by thirteen votes.

He was re-elected in 1964, defeating Florence Rodi with 76% of the vote.

Flipse lost his bid for re-election in 1967, losing by a 58%-42% against James Brady, a public school teacher.

A World War II Navy veteran, Flipse was the chief surveyor for the Garden State Parkway construction project from 1952 to 1960.  He also taught vocation education in Ocean County.
