Default The sudden loss of Charter Member & Moderator, BillR

I am truly saddened to let everyone know that original Charter Member of OSO, (#125), Bill Rippel, of Virginia Beach, VA, passed away on Saturday, 26AUG17.

He was boating on the James River in coastal Virginia, when he had a medical emergency, and passed of natural causes. He was surrounded by his friends and his wife Cindy, when he passed. Those are all of the details that are needed at this time.

https://www.facebook.com/bill.rippel
There will be a viewing in the Virginia Beach area this Friday, 1SEP17; and Bill will be cremated with his ashes spread over the water.

Visitation is scheduled this Friday, September 1st from 2-4 PM with a service at 4PM.
The location for all will be Altmeyer Funeral Home at the corner of Newtown and Greenwich Road, in Virginia Beach.
