Mr. Donald F. "Rip" Ripley
1934-2009
Donald Frank “Rip” Ripley - August 22, 1934-September 17, 2009, Kentville, Nova Scotia, and Beverly Hills, Florida, passed away peacefully in the Valley Regional Hospital on Thursday, September 17, 2009 with his family by his side. He was the son of the late Frank and Lucy (Brison) Ripley of Kentville, Nova Scotia. He attended Kings County Academy (KCA). A personal drive to escape poverty, a love of sports and a fascination with nearby Camp Aldershot were among the boyhood trademarks of Donald Ripley. Daily excursions to the Camp, between 1942 and 1945, selling newspapers and magazines, burned the memory of Aldershot and the young soldiers into Ripley's heart. From the age of seven he sneaked through the fences to watch the soldiers train, and in the process heard language that was not always fit for parlour discussions, and he developed entrepreneurial skills through tough experience with men who faced uncertain futures. A keen athlete and fierce competitor, Donald played high school, and later senior hockey. But baseball was his first love, and he played baseball in the Cape Breton League. Upon graduating from KCA, he joined the United States Army and served in Japan as a Military Police officer, as well as playing ball for the US Army in Japan. Upon returning from Japan, Donald also enjoyed a brief pro stint playing Double A baseball in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and Danville, Illinois. However, he then abandoned thoughts of a future in professional baseball, and at age 25, pursued a business career. He subsequently spent thirty years working in the investment business. After retirement, he obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Norwich University in Vermont and then went on to the New England School of Law in Boston where he graduated with a Law Degree in 1998 at the age of 64. Donald was also an avid writer who wrote poetry and 8 published books, including “The Home Front”, wartime life at Camp Aldershot and “Thine Own Keeper”, a history of the Nova Scotia Sanatorium. Donald also loved giving back to his community and with his love for hockey and having played for the KCA High School hockey team and the Kentville Wildcats in 1951-52, Donald volunteered to coach the KCA High School hockey team during the '74-'75 and '75-'76 seasons where they won the provincial championship in both seasons. As a result, he was inducted into the KCA Sports Hall of Fame. Outside business, his interests included politics and fundraising for a variety of political and charity organizations. Proud of his family and ancestors, especially his background Indian heritage, Donald enjoyed meeting new people and sharing colourful stories, and making people laugh. Donald is survived by his wife of 55 years, Frona (MacFarlane); daughters, Nancy (Hood) son-in-law, Larry, Halifax; Karel, Halifax; sons Shawn, daughter-in-law Angela (Mosher), Kentville; and Dana, Beverly Hills, Florida; four grandsons, Jason and Mitchell Ripley; Nicholas and Oscar Hood; sisters-in-law Myrna, Eleanor, Bonnie and Debbie; several aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews; as well as his 2 adorable dogs Raggs & Scotia. He was pre¬deceased by an infant sister, Louise; a sister-in-law, Freda Carter; and several aunts and uncles. Cremation has taken place under the direction of the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 100 Cornwallis Street, Kentville. Visitation will be held from 7-9 p.m. Sunday, September 20, 2009 in the White Family Funeral Home, Kentville, where a memorial service, followed by a reception, will be held on Monday, September 21, 2009 at 4:00 p.m. Burial will take place at a later date. Family flowers only, by request. Donations can be made to the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of Canada by visiting www.ccfc.ca. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kentville.
