Ripper worked for the City of Welland for over 40 years, where he made a lasting impact through his hard work and dedication. His passion for hockey was evident whether he was coaching, playing, or cheering on his favorite team the Canadians. Ripper raced stock cars for many years at Humberstone Speedway, where he forged lifelong friendships and unforgettable memories. Above all else, Ripper loved his family, and the time they spent together. His family were not only his pride and joy but also his greatest source of happiness. The family wishes to thank Dr. Rivers and Robyn, the EMS-Palliative Care Unit, Seasons Retirement home and everyone who has provided support during this difficult time.

WELLAND FUNERAL HOME, CREMATION AND RECEPTION CENTRE has had the honour of caring for Ripper and his family. A private ceremony will take place.
