JAMES COLIN RIPLEY, beloved husband of Margaret Faye Ripley, passed away with his family by his side at St. Michael’s Health Centre on Friday, November 15, 2019 at the age of 81 years.

Jim was the proud father of two daughters, Lori (Agé) Dejong and Jacquie (Trevor) Kuryvial. His four grandchildren, Rylee (Justin) Coccimiglio, TJ Ripley-Pierson, MaCall Kuryvial and Cole Kuryvial will miss their Papa immensely.

Jim was a devoted family man and enjoyed so many fun adventures with his grandkids. He always put his family first and was a huge influence in their lives and the lives of anyone who knew him well. He loved the outdoors; he was always happiest while camping and fishing with Marg and some of their close friends. Jim was known to most in Taber as Dr. Ripley as he spent 32 years treating patients through his chiropractic practice.

He was a gentle and kind man and he will be sadly missed by so many.

A Private Celebration of Jim’s Life was held at Cornerstone Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
