Urban Ray Tripp

March 18, 1935 — March 6, 2021

Urban Ray Tripp was born on March 18, 1935, to Randall and May (Eggleston) Tripp in Schaller, Iowa. He attended his first eight years at country school and then attended Schaller High School. After high school, Urban enlisted into the United States Army. Following his honorable discharge, he was united in marriage to Roslyn "Dolly" Crum on July 16, 1960, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Ida Grove, Iowa. Urban farmed all of his life with his brothers near Schaller.

Urban was a member of St. John Lutheran Church in Kiron. He loved going to antique tractor and threshermen shows. One of his favorite places to visit was the state of South Dakota; the State Fair and Laura Ingalls Wilder were places he looked forward to visiting every year. He enjoyed road trips to the ranch in Gillette, Wyoming. He always knew how to make people laugh. Above all, he cherished spending time with his grandchildren.

Urban passed away on March 6, 2021, at Eventide Lutheran Home in Denison, Iowa, at the age of 85 years, 11 months and 19 days.

Urban was preceded in death by his parents; son, Nathan Tripp; daughter-in-law, Rousanne Tripp; and two great-grandsons, Daltyn Tripp and Cyrus Tripp. He is survived by his wife, Roslyn "Dolly" Tripp of Denison; daughter, Roxie (Paul Schultz) Neumann of Kiron; adopted son, Hank (Cindy) Myrice of Schaller; seven grandchildren, Angie (Nathan) Tremblay of Kiron, Justin (Katie) Neumann of Lake View, Iowa, Shane (Nichole) Neumann of Wall Lake, Iowa, Jackie Tripp of Alton, Iowa, Randi Tripp of Newell, Iowa, Kristen Tripp of Stanton, Iowa, and Nathan Myrice of Gillette, Wyoming; ten great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; brothers, Gerald (Charlotte) Tripp and Ralph (Lucille Fitzhenry) Tripp all of Schaller; and many other relatives and friends.
