This page is dedicated to those members of our Amateur community who have passed on. Their energies and involvement within our fraternity will be missed. Every one of these individuals contributed to making the Livingston Amateur Radio Klub what it is today.

Bob Lutz N8JSC 8-5-1916 to 3-17-2007


Bob was an Extra class Ham and long time LARK member who loved people. He celebrated every individual and had a special love for children. He demonstrated this love as Boy Scout leader in Detroit and Hamburg Township, but most of all by being Santa Claus for twenty five years in Hamburg Township. Bob was active in the Kiwanis Club, senior citizens groups in Pinckney and Hamburg Township, served on the Township Zoning Board, the Hamburg Fire Department (Celebration Chair) and sat on the Board of the Maxie Boys Training School. Friends, visiting his home, remember that he would make them select and take with them one of his brass collectables.

Bob gave much to everyone he came in contact with and he will be missed by many.

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.
