Kelly Ray Rippel, age 63, of Uhrichsville, died early Saturday, July 23, 2022, while in the care of Community Hospice’s Truman House following a period of declining health.

Born at Dover on January 21, 1959, Kelly was a son of the late Gene and June Carpenter Caswell.

Kelly quit High School to serve in the United States Navy.  After his service in the Navy, he studied to be an electrician and became a self-employed electrician and carpenter in the area for many years.  On September 20, 1985 he married the love of his life, Cindy (Meuhlen) Rippel.

Kelly fell in love with carpentry and was always proud of the woodworking items that he made.  He also loved to download music.  When inside he could be found watching car restoration shows on television.  His dream car was a 1957 Chevy.

In addition to his wife, Kelly will be deeply missed by his children, Maxi (Michael Myers) Rippel, and son, Zach Rippel both of Uhrichsville; his grandchildren, Jaggar Rippel and Chloe Damron; his sister, Christine (Rob) McDougald; brother, Ed (Jackie) Simpson; and special friend, Paula Wolfe.

In addition to his parents, Kelly was preceded in death by his sister, Charlie June; and mother-in-law, Mary Lou Devore.

In keeping with his wishes, The Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia is handling cremation care.  A Celebration of Kelly’s life will be held at a later date.

Those wishing to do so may send memorial contributions to Community Hospice, 716 Commercial Ave. SW, New Philadelphia, OH 44663.

Kelly's Family & Friends, So sorry for your loss. Kelly was a welcome addition to the neighborhood in New Philly when he would be visiting his grandparents on Maple Ave in the late 60's-early 70's. We spent a lot of time just hanging out. He was a gentle, happy fella. May the Lord give you guidance and peace at this difficult time. RIP Kelly, Good Friend Larry McBride

It's so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone. RIP Kelly! My condolences to Cindy and family!

Kelly, you are missed already sweet guy. I’m so glad I got to be around for your final days & visit often. Our hearts are truly broken, but knowing you are RIP & well again, reuniting with your parents/loved ones who have gone before you……..that is the only consolation for our loss. Till my last breath….. I will be here for Maxi, Zack, Cindy, Jaggar & Chloe/the whole family. Remembering you is so easy, losing you is not. When my time here has ended, look out Lolly cause we will have a glorious reunion. Love you so much??
