Condolences to the family of Cordell Lane Ripper



Cordell Lane

November 14, 1976 - June 17, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Cordell Lane Ripper on Monday, June 17, 2019. Left to cherish his memory are his parents; Dan and Norma Ripper of Drumheller, his sister Kimberly and her children; Schae-Lynn, McKenna, Jace and Rhett of Warman, Sask. Cordell was diagnosed early in life with some severe handicaps. Cordell never asked for anything in this life but always gave you that smile and his laugh no matter how he was feeling. Cory will be sadly missed but never forgotten. The family would like to extend a sincere thanks for all of the staff at the D.A.R.T.’S. residence. Special thanks go out to Edna and Teresa who were truly his guardian angels. Thanks also to all the medical staff and Dr. Olfert for making his last years comfortable. Your kindness and concern will be forever remembered.
