Obituary for Robert Ernest Tripp

Robert Ernest Tripp, a lifelong Oxford resident, passed away Monday, February 3, 2014, at the age of 82.

Born August 17, 1931 to Percy and Florence (Sheffield) Tripp, Bob was the loving husband of Donna (Campbell) Tripp for the past 56 years. Besides his wife, he is survived by their children, Dean (Jean) Tripp of Fort Wayne, Indiana, DeAnne (Curtis) Nordine of Ludington, Ronald (Debra) Tripp of Chevy Chase, Maryland, and Julie Wagner of Oxford; and by his grandchildren, Eric (Rebecca) Tripp of Woodburn, Indiana, Rachel Tripp of Gaithersburg, Maryland, Katherine Tripp of Chevy Chase, Maryland, Caleb (Shawna) Nordine of Ludington, and Kayleigh Nordine of Grand Rapids and by great-grandchildren Tyler, Taylor, Emily, Ella and Eyrelyn Tripp of Woodburn, Indiana. He is also survived by his niece Connie (Campbell) Rankine of Port Huron and nephew Kirk (Anne) Campbell of California. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Roger Tripp.

A 1949 graduate of Oxford High School, Bob served his country in The U.S. Air Force and spent a career managing the office at American Aggregates’ Oxford plant. Bob served his community in numerous ways, including many years on The Oxford Village Council, as a member of American Legion Post 108, in various capacities at Immanuel Congregational Church, as a founding officer of Oxford’s senior housing complex (Oxford Square Apartments), and for many decades as a member and past president of The Oxford Lions Club.

During his life Bob enjoyed working in his yard, and camping with his family while traveling the State of Michigan; and as years passed, spending winters in Florida and taking walks through the town he had always called home.

Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors, 39 West Burdick Street, Oxford, on Friday, February 7th, from 3:00 until 8:00 p.m. Funeral will be at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 8th, at Immanuel Congregational United Church of Christ, 1 Hovey Street, Oxford, with Pastor Liz Wilson officiating. Interment will be at The Oxford Township Cemetery. Memorials to the Immanuel Congregational Church of Christ or The Oxford Lion's Club appreciated.
