SAMUEL RONNIE RIPPERSeptember 22, 1928 ~ October 14, 2017 (age 89)
Sam passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family, his wife of 65 years Joyce, sons Tim Velcrow, daughter Carla. He was a wonderful,loving husband, father, uncle and friend, grandad to Nick Ripper Phoenix Ripper-Ami, father-in-law to Susan Erickson and Nova Ami. He was an important father and grandfather figure to many more. Generous of spirit, he was a truly radiant soul with a golden heart who gave unconditional love. Always ready to help others, particularly with his mechanical talent. He was a kind and gentle man and a devoted Baha'i. We will all miss you and love you with all of our hearts. The family thanks Dr. Lehman and the staff at Sechelt Hospital for taking such good care of Sam.
