Louis Ripepi Sr. had a special way of reaching out to those in need. He was known for his tenderness and individual attention he would give to grief-stricken families. He built a reputation as an honest, caring and respected member of the community. But his true mark was left on his family. Louis, a loving husband and father of four, was revered and admired for dedication to his wife, Rose Marie, his son, Louis, Jr. and his daughters Maryellen, Linda and Sandra.

Louis D. Ripepi, Jr. followed in his father’s footsteps and is continuing his legacy of caring today. Serving side by side with his dad from 1979 until his father passed away in 2000, Louis, Jr. watched and learned from the very best.

A life-long resident of Parma, Louis Jr. attended St. Charles Grade School and Padua Franciscan High School. He received his Bachelors of Science from Ashland University.
