Here is buried an outstanding man in (knowledge of ) Torah and good character traits, the Rabbi Yitzchak Yaakov son of Reb Aryeh Lipson of blessed memory. Died 9th of Sivan 5702. May his soul be bound in the bonds of life.

The title Reb doesn't signify being a Rabbi and is an honorific. Yitzchak Yaakov's title suggests he may have actually been ordained as a Rabbi, but it could also be an honorific. The date corresponds to either May 24th after sunset or the day of the 25th, 1942.
