Palm Beachers remember 'special man' Ogden Mills “Dinny” Phipps

Deerfield Academy in Deerfield, Mass., and Yale University. Between 1976 and 1994, Mr. Phipps served as chairman of the board of Bessemer Trust, the private bank and investment advisor established by the Phipps family in 1907. He also was chairman of Bessemer Securities Corp. from 1982 until 1994. He continued to serve on the two Bessemer boards until he retired in 2015. Palm Beacher Earle Mack, former U.S. ambassador to Finland, met Mr. Phipps when Phipps was a senior at Yale and he was a second lieutenant at Fort Dix. Mack said they remained friends for 52 years. As young adults, Mack said they were both civic-minded, loved horses and were bachelors in New York. “Dinny and I went out on many double dates together,” said Mack, a member of The Jockey Club and the New York Racing Association board of directors and former chairman of the New York State Racing Commission. “We had lots of fun, and some mischievous fun. He and I went through life as good friends. When I think of Dinny, I think of unrelenting friendship, through every period of our lives.” Mack described Mr. Phipps as a passionate person who fought for what he believed in. “He walked softly but he had a very big presence,” Mack said. “He was a person of the highest integrity, and that’s why he was my hero. In this crazy world, it’s so easy to get sidetracked. Dinny never strayed. His humility never wavered. He had such admirable strength of character, and everyone respected him for that.” Mack also described Mr. Phipps as a generous family man who would do anything for the ones he loved. “I think he’ll be remembered as a great role mode as a parent, and in thoroughbred racing industry,” Mack said. “He was a special man.” Mr. Phipps is survived by his wife of 46 years, Andrea; children Kayce, Kelley, Lilly, Daisy, Samantha, and Ogden; and 24 grandchildren. He was predeceased in 2007 by his sister, Cynthia Phipps. Funeral arrangements are pending. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation or a href="http://www.tjcfound... (Palm Beach Daily News)
