Born on Jan. 16, 2007, in Yokohama City, Japan, sweet Tripp was the son of Nancy Wong DeMetris and Tim DeMetris and big brother to sister Kiki. His kind and soft-spoken disposition brought light and joy to many. Family, friends, teachers and classmates looked forward to his kindhearted smile and curious nature each day. He enjoyed and took tender care of Kiki and he was a beacon of goodness to everyone who knew him. He will be dearly missed.
Tripp is survived by his parents, Tim DeMetris of Somerset and Nancy Wong DeMetris of Shingle Springs; sister, Kiki DeMetris; grandfather, John DeMetris; and grandparents, Bill and Pauline Wong; as well as loving aunts, uncles cousins and many special friends.
Memorial services will be privately held among relatives, close friends and those who knew Tripp. The family requests that in lieu of flowers memorial donations be made to the Federated Church Preschool, 1031 Thompson Way, Placerville, CA, 95667.
… You are my angel, my darling, my star … and my love will find you wherever you are …
