My dad was Kenneth (Ken)
Ripley. He was a conductor and later a driver in the 1970’s into the 80’s.
Hello ShaRip, I remember your dad very well, and with fondness, never a dull moment, he was always laughing and joking, never saw him miserable once. My mam and dad were friends with your mam and dad when they lived on the Cardinals 1970's. He used to roadie for a professional comedian but I can't remember his name, I also remember when Ken sadly passed away, there was a heck of a lot of people at his funeral which shows what a well liked character he was. Remembered with a smile.
