City of Cleveland expresses condolences for Daniel Ripepi, killed in Interstate 480 accident

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The city of Cleveland released a statement Friday evening on the passing of Daniel Ripepi, who died after an Interstate 480 highway sign collapsed on his truck Thursday morning.

A statement from Mayor Frank Jackson, Public Safety Director Karrie D. Howard and Police Chief Calvin Williams says Daniel Ripepi and his family have been “longstanding partners of the City of Cleveland, especially our safety force.”

The statement called A. Ripepi & Sons Funeral Homes a well-respected business that has served residents in time of grief. Most recently, it accommodated Cleveland police in honoring its fallen detective, James Skernivitz, and donated money for Cleveland K9s to wear ballistic vests.

“Daniel C. Ripepi was instrumental in gifting our Cleveland Police canines with ballistic vest,” the statement says. “We offer our deepest sympathy to Daniel’s wife, Kristen, their children, the Ripepi family and all who knew and loved Daniel.”
