New school custodian lives in the country and loves it

By ALLAN TINKER
The new head custodian at the McClusky School District is new to North Dakota. Richard Alan Tripp was born and raised in the western part of the U.S: born in Denver, CO and living there until he was ten when he moved to California. He has two brothers and one sister, with his dad living in Missouri and his mom in California.
Tripp has an Associate in Arts degree and has worked in many occupations. His work history includes having worked in the restaurant field as a manager and in the aircraft industry. He has also worked as a bookkeeper, a dock worker, a painter, and he was a professional truck driver for 10 years.
Tripp and his wife Tina have been married for 30 years. They have five children: Cameron, 27; Lance, 24; Drake, 17; Daisy, 13; and Noah, 10.
As a special interest in his spare time, he likes to collect old clocks. He has also a hobby of restoring 1950 Chevrolets. He notes especially that he “loves to spend time with my family.”
