He was married to love of his life Doris, together they made many memories even working at Meritor Automotive together for 25yrs. Richard loved the outdoors. In the winter he loved to sit in his sunroom and watch the deer, wild turkeys and birds in his yard while enjoying The South Carolina Gamecocks football and baseball, in his earlier years he enjoyed deer hunting and dirt track or NASCAR races. In the summers he enjoyed camping at his favorite state park Huntington Beach or you may have seen him spending the weekends at Ebenezer Park with friends. He was an active member of Living by Faith Church in York. He was proud of children and grandchildren, he was always bragging on them or showing them off once he mastered his smart phone. Richard enjoyed life to the fullest and always looked for the positive in any situation. When diagnosed with cancer he never complained he turned to his faith and family. in his last days he asked to be with his wife and children to pass away peacefully. We are forever grateful to our Uncle Mike Rippy who has been with us on this journey and by his side just as he requested.
