Dr. Richard Liptak

U.S. Veteran

Dr. Richard Liptak passed away Monday night after a long life dedicated to his family, friends and patients.  

The first member of his family to attend college, he graduated from Drew University before earning his medical degree from LSU in New Orleans.

Dr. Liptak served 16 years in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, taking his family to Texas, Colorado, Maryland and West Germany.  Upon leaving the military, he entered private practice in Tyler where he treated patients for more than 25 years.  

In retirement, he dedicated himself to St. Boniface Catholic Church, where he was a founding member.  He volunteered as a grief counselor with a hospice in Tyler and with God's Open Hands in Chandler. 

He loved painting, the opera and his peaceful home on Lake Palestine. 

He married three times and lost three wives to cancer.  He is survived by his partner, Ellen Wallace, and his children Eric, Paul, Mary and Kurt. He has four grandchildren Logan, Abigail, Matthew, and Amanda.

A funeral mass honoring Dr. Liptak will be held 2:00 pm Thursday, May 1st at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Chandler with Bishop Emeritus Edmond Carmody presiding.
