We are saddened to announce the passing of Lowell Irving Tripp, one of our long-time Adventist Community Services volunteers, on December 7, 2021 at the age of 100. He was predeceased by his wife of 72 years Betty Jean Tripp in 2018. They both volunteered for Adventist Community Services of Greater Washington in Silver Spring, MD for 20 years after his retirement in 1988 from Adventist Risk Management after working 35 years for the church. They managed the food pantry, picked up food from Safeway and Costco each week, stocked the food bags for customers, organized the food in the pantry, and helped out in other ways.
Lowell was a longtime member of the Takoma Park Seventh-day Adventist Church, and after he moved to Eltern Haus assisted living in 2017 he regularly watched Atholton Seventh-day Adventist Church livestream with his granddaughters Kristina and Amber. A memorial service will be held for him on January 22, 2022 at the Atholton Church in Columbia, MD. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations that can be made to Adventist Community Services.
He was greatly loved and is survived by his daughter Brenda Coffin of Beltsville, MD and companion Alan Jorgensen, son Warren Irving Tripp and daughter-in-law Tammy Tripp of Superior, CO, granddaughter Kristina Dahabura of Columbia, MD who he helped raise, great-granddaughter Amber Gramkow of Columbia, MD who he also helped raise, granddaughter Ashlee Tripp of CO, grandson Matthew Lowell Tripp and granddaughter-in-law Cristina Melendez Tripp of Westminster, CO, and great-granddaughters Olivia Tripp and Ava Tripp of Westminster, CO.
Let us keep the Tripp family in our thoughts and prayers as they cope with this difficult loss.
