Sadly, Michael passed away May 19, 2012 from colon, rectal, bladder cancer.

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.
