This post is labeled "Harry (personal)" - it's very personal!
I’m sorry I won’t be able to make it to New York for the wake or funeral, but I send love and condolences to Linda and all of Terry’s family and friends.

Terry Lee Ridpath
Terry Lee Ridpath, 67, of Garrison, passed away in Naperville, IL on Saturday, August 2, 2014, while doing what he loved best – spending time with his grandkids.
As a retired Captain from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department and a U.S. Army veteran, Terry was currently involved in a variety of organizations, including the Fraternal Order of Police Stephen P. Driscoll Memorial Lodge #704, the local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), and the American Legion. He was also a drivers’ education instructor for the AARP.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions be made to Rosary Hill in Hawthorne, N.Y.
As the hospice facility that took care of his beloved wife during her battle with liver cancer last year, Rosary Hill held a special place in Terry's heart.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at 10 a.m., Friday, August 8, 2014, at Our Lady of Loretto Church, 24 Fair Street, Cold Spring. The burial will take place at St. Philip’s cemetery in Garrison.
