Joseph Edward Galipeau, Jr. WA1LRL

Dec 18, 1946 to May 6, 2007

Ed was born in Salem, MA and graduated from Beverly Vocational High School Class of 1968. He was the son of Joseph Edward and Dorothy M.T. (Morneau) Galipeau Sr. of Beverly. He served four years in the submarine service during the Vietnam War and received an honorary discharge.

Ed was a lifetime member of the ARRL and an Extra Class Amateur Radio Operator. He served with the Civil Defense in Beverly, and was one of the first 2,000 EMTs certified in the US. He moved to Michigan in 1985. In Michigan he served with the American Red Cross and various Livingston County ARES and RACES groups. At the time of his death, he was director of IT for New Center Stamping and EC for the National Weather Service in White Lake, MI.

Ed died of amyloidosis, a rare autoimmune disease. Little research is being done because the small number of victims do not generate sufficient research funding. Contributions may be made in his name to Amyloid Research Fund, www.bu.edu/amyloid.
