27 year old Russell Rippetoe, an Arvada native, died in a suicide bombing northwest of Baghdad on Thursday. Rippetoe and two other Americans were killed when a pregnant woman stepped out of the vehicle and began screaming in fear. The car then exploded, killing the soldiers, the woman and the driver of the car.
Former neighbors describe Rippetoe as a strong, sensitive man, who was always willing to help. Neighbor Palmer Mason says Rippetoe probably thought somebody needed help.
