Gary Elwood Tripp

Gary Tripp - East Prembroke, NY - Rochester Cremation

Aged 62 of East Pembroke, died Friday morning, December 11. 2020 at Unity Hospital in Rochester, New York.  He was born July 1, 1958 to the late Guy and Marjorie (Bissell) Tripp.    

Gary was an avid contributor to his community as a life-long volunteer emergency responder through work with East Pembroke and Alabama Fire Departments, Leroy Ambulatory Services and with the Red Cross. As a retired Nurse, Gary contributed to and then ran the Batavia Flea Market for many years, was a previous member of the County Agricultural Security Board, and was always looking for a way to help people in need. Gary was a life-long friend of almost anyone he met because of his outgoing spirit and genuine generosity. He appreciated being in the moment; to stop to enjoy a sunset, take pictures and share his experiences. Finally, Gary was a family man who enjoyed spending time with his fur-babies and those he loved; cherishing them as his most valued possession.

Surviving are his companion, Kathryn Sobresky, his brother James (Terry) Tripp both of Batavia; his sons James Tripp of Basom, and USAF TSgt Jeremy (Jessica) Tripp of Chili; grandchildren, Patrick, Scott, Shawn, Natalie and Nicholas Tripp; several nieces and nephews.

At his family’s request, there is no visitation or funeral services. He will be interred privately in Mt Rest Cemetery in Bergen. In lieu of flowers, memorials in his memory can be made to your local volunteer fire department or Mercy Flight.
