Richard A. Rippel
Age 81 of Greenwood, Indiana passed away on April 21, 2020. Richard "Dick" was born on July 10, 1938 in Dover, Ohio to the late Fred Theodore & Clara Mae Hattfield Rippel. He was preceded in death by his brother, Freddie Rippel. Dick is survived by his wife of 30 years, Judy Rippel; daughters, Suzy (Tony) Payson and Robin Meyers; step-daughters, Ann (Michael) Wilczynski, Mary (Tony) Schmid and Kathleen Wilson; step-son, Charles (Lisa) Lewis; grandchildren, Danielle (Colton), Stephanie, Rachel, Courtney, Megan (Bret), Emily and Erica; and great grandchild, Evelyn. Dick enjoyed spending time with his loved ones, caring for his cats, and tending to his coin collection. He was an extremely skilled gardener and handyman, and you could always find him tinkering around in his garage. He will be remembered for his love of all things sweet and the joy he found while intricately decorating every year for Christmas. Most importantly though, he will be remembered for being a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. The family would like to express our thanks for the wonderful help and care given by Magnolia Springs.
Due to the current guidelines limiting public gatherings, Dick's funeral will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to The Salvation Army. Arrangements entrusted to Wilson St. Pierre Funeral Service & Crematory, Greenwood Chapel, 481 W. Main Street, Greenwood.
