Trip and I grew up together on Buffalo Ridge Road..Riding horses, sledding down their hill in the winter...crazy motorcycle escapade up the ridge( I ended up in the road!).. I'll never forget that silly little guy who grew to be a giant of a man..Much love to Ellen, Lynn(remember when we "fell" out of the tree while you were babysitting?!) and Emmy..He was much loved as are you🙏❤️God bless you all!

I am so sorry and shocked to hear this news! It breaks my heart. I remember him when we were in first grade together and graduation. His mom was a wonderful teacher and loved how she was so kind to me. My condolences to the family! RIP Tripp
