Tributes in honor of Officer Gary E. Rippstein

  • Retired Police Officer .TPRA Member

    As a young rookie on Torrance PD, I worked with Officer Gary Rippstein in the early 60’s. He had a great sense of humor and was very well liked . Because of his religious affiliation Gary became the Department Chaplain. I had left and transferred to another agency when I learned of Gary’s death. He was a man of strong character, and his loss was a tragedy I always remember even as I write this on Feb 15, 2019. ” lest we ever never forget”. EOW 12-22-68 My Friend Gary.
