Longtime PE Coach Dick Rippey Passed Away - Saturday, April 30, 2016



It is with a heavy heart that I echo the news with fellow HHS alum - that Coach Dick Rippey passed away last evening, and had been at home, being cared for by hospice. He was a graduate of Hollywood High, as was his late wife Alice.

"Uncle Dick" as some of us came to know him - embodied what it meant to come from a school like Hollywood, and always strived to set the example of Achieving the Honorable. I know I speak for many of my classmates and fellow alumni - that he will be greatly missed.

Thankfully, those of us that are lucky enough to have a copy of "Hollywood High's First 100 Years" DVD - can listen to him narrate us through the hallowed halls yet again, just as he did for countless class reunions and Alumni Day events on Campus.

A memorial service of some kind is being planned, perhaps in June - but details aren't available at present.

One of our outstanding alumnus.  He will be missed by all who knew him.  There was no one more loyal to the school than out pal Dick.  

R.I.P old friend.

Sorry to here of his loss...I was told by friend here in the Bay Area last week but didn't have further info. It just seems that we played golf not that long ago...the last time I spoke to Dick was at coach Bob Hills memorial. Time just seems to be passing quicker and quicker these days. R.I.P. Dick.
