Gregory Ripkoski

Gregory Ripkoski was born November 12, 1957 and went home to the Lord on Wednesday March 5, 2014. He was born in Navasota, Texas to Joe Thomas (Tommy) Ripkoski and Christine Kitkoski. He grew up in Navasota and moved to Bryan in 1993. Greg accepted Jesus as a child and never faltered on his faith.
Greg lived life and every day was a happy day. Whether it was people watching or teasing Ranger (mom’s dog), there were always kind words for his sisters. He was a big help to his mother.
He was preceded in death by his father.
Survivors include his mother, Christine Kitkoski; sisters, Jeanette Curtis and husband Tom, Marilyn Miller and husband Steve; brother, Glen Ripkoski and wife Crystal; cousins, nieces, nephews and friends who loved him very much.

We will miss Greg’s sweet, uncomplicated spirit. He was an extraordinary young man of miracles from beginning to end, and while we greatly mourn his loss here, we know heaven is rejoicing.

A Celebration of Life Service is set for 11 a.m. Friday, March 7, 2014 at Callaway-Jones Funeral Home in Bryan. His family will receive guests during a visitation prior to the service beginning at 10 a.m.

  1. 57 years ago God gave us this special angel to love and share our lives with, he taught me that even though he had special needs, and a hard childhood, that he had no bitterness or hatred for anyone. He had a fun personality, could crack his fair share of jokes, and let you know in a minute what he was thinking. He made me laugh every time I called to talk to his Mother, my Aunt Sis, and even though I think he knew already he would ask “who is this” and I would say “Sissie” and he would say “Sissie Moore?” I will miss hearing that the most. I am so glad I got to share the last 5 or 6 years of his life. Rest in peace my dear cousin, and rejoice that The Heavenly Father came for you him self, and not one of this angels, hopefully that will give your precious mother Christine joy in knowing you are with the Heavenly Father rejoicing as I write this. Forever your Sissie Moore

  3. Gosh what a shock to learn of Greg’s passing. He was so full of life & caring of his friends. He really enjoyed working & just life in general. The last time I saw him he was playing with Ranger & laughing so much. God bless you Greg & rest in peace.
