HUDSON OAKS – Robert Liptack, 78, of Hudson Oaks, died early Tuesday morning, May 21, 2013, in the local hospital.

He was born Jan. 17, 1935, in Detroit, Mich. Mr. Liptack was a member of St. Stephens Catholic Church. He graduated from the Henry Ford Trade School in Detroit, becoming a machinist. He served in the U.S. Navy from 1955-1958 as an engine man on naval vessels.

Continuing his strong work ethic after retirement from GM, Robert worked for more than 20 years for Industrial Power Truck & Equipment as a service sales consultant.
