The outpouring of appreciation for Larry Trippy of Paul’s Newstand on Park Street continues.
The 60-year-old died February 9 of a heart attack, according to an online story by the Alameda Journal.
The newstand where he used to be found daily is covered with notes, flowers, candles and thoughts. There’s also a notepad for members of the community to express their condolences.
And those passing by on Wednesday shared shock and sadness at the news of his death. A group of Alameda High School students at the newstand said Trippy “was really nice.” Even if he didn’t really know you, he always wave and share a greeting.
