Condolences to Dr. Nancy Krippel and Family

Frank Krippel, the husband of Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Nancy Krippel died Sunday after a battle with cancer. Sources close to the family said Krippel had been under hospice care and died peacefully at home.

Frank, who was retired, became an active member of the Gainesville Rotary Club when the Krippels moved to Georgia in 2011. He participated in, among other things, the club’s ongoing initiative to build wheelchair ramps on the homes of local area residents who need them.

The Krippels have three grown children and seven grandchildren, all of whom live in the New York or Chicago areas.
