For man, 90, key to long life is staying busy - James Rieppel of
Garth Wade • January 19, 2009
One of John and Ethel Rieppel's seven kids, Jim was 11 when the family moved to Mansfield, where his dad opened Rieppel's Welding Shop in 1928. The skills learned from his dad guided his life, a life enriched by the petite lady he married 63 years ago. Jim calls her Mary. Everybody else calls her Betty.
Betty Bunn was working at her uncle Howard Vosburg's Restaurant in Mansfield when Jim stopped in for a strawberry sundae in 1939. The spark between them endured for six years until he came home from World War II. Later, after Betty's uncle Howard died, Jim was appointed to Howard's seat on the Southern Tioga School Board.
No one is more self- sufficient than a kid raised during the Depression of the 1930s. Jim, 17, couldn't afford a canoe so he built one. He dated Betty in that canoe, paddling on Mountain Lake nourished by Betty's picnic lunch. The canoe, still new, hangs in his garage today.
The dates ceased in August 1942, when he was drafted into the Army Air Forces. Assigned to the 907th Signal Company, the skills he learned during six years in his father's shop earned Jim a "fix- anything" reputation. When broken generators piled up for lack of a part, Jim made the part. "Before the captain knew what I was doing, I had generators going out the door one after the other," he said.
Jim was awarded a Legion of Merit medal for his skills. His company's war began in Africa, then moved to Sicily and Italy. It wasn't all work and danger. Jim attended midnight Mass celebrated by Pope Pius XII in Vatican City. The pope blessed him and his picture of Betty. Other events weren't pretty. Partisans executed Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and his mistress, Clara Pettaci, in April 1945, then hanged their bodies by the feet in Milan. Jim saw that grisly scene.
He came home from war on Thanksgiving 1945, married Betty two weeks later and moved into a house he'd bought earlier for $1,700. It got too big 10 years ago, so they downsized to a neat ranch they built in what used to be their backyard.
Jim and Betty have three daughters, Adele, Rosemary and Marsha. Marsha is named for a swamp Jim transformed into a pretty 25-acre pond near Little Marsh. He worked for a month of Sundays clearing and burning. Then he built a cottage with a fireplace he made from stones hauled in by his family.
Jim is very proud of his 20 years on the school board. His best memory is his success in bargaining with property owners for land needed to build Mansfield's Warren Miller Elementary School. Meanwhile, his work at Rieppel Welding kept his family fed and kept him busy, 12 hours a day, seven days a week. His can-do-anything talents led to everything from frozen water pipes to numerous demolition jobs in the county, including the old Mill Creek bridge on former Route 15.
He moved a house. He moved First Citizens National Bank safety deposit boxes from the old bank to the new. "He was never home," Betty said. "We did everything that needed to be done," Jim said. When a project got tough, he'd visualize his father on the job, telling him what to do, Jim said. "He was a good man." Rieppel's Welding was sold in 1972, but Jim stayed on for four years to help the new owner.
Early family rec time included a lot of fishing. Betty landed a 20-pound Lake Ontario salmon that's half as tall as she. "I had to hang onto her to keep her in the boat," Jim said. The fish was mounted, so she's got proof. Jim's later years have been filled with woodworking projects including cupboards for his kids. He also takes care of the lawn and grows a garden. Busy is the key, he said. "They don't want me to do anything. If I don't do something, I'll die anyhow."
