Conrad Bruce Riffle Obituary

Conrad “Con” Bruce Riffle was born to Thomas and Edith Riffle in Richmond, West Virginia on February 24, 1941. He was a faithful member of the Apostolic Church of Barberton for over 50 years and often attended the Minerva Apostolic Church where his son-in-law, Tim Gropp, pastors. Conrad grew up in Summersville, West Virginia then moved to Ohio and attended Coventry High School. 

Conrad has been married to Darlene (Berginc) Riffle for 59 years and they have three children: Brian Riffle (Krystal) in Mogadore, Michelle Hall in Massillon, and Christine Gropp (Tim) in Minerva.  He loves his eight grandchildren: Jennifer Wisner, Matt, Dan, and Nate Hall, Timothy (Marque) Gropp, Rebecca Hall, Joel Gropp, and Stephen Hall and great-grandchildren: Gabby and Caleb. He had also extended himself to his niece, Wanda Stoute, as a dear uncle as her father passed away at a young age and a spiritual grandpa to Hannah Horne, friend of family.

In his last five years, he became a well-known registered Beekeeper with over 150 hives. He sold bee hives and at age 80, he created a YouTube channel that you can watch to this day under “Beekeeping Ohio Conrad Riffle”, so his bee legacy carries on. He and his wife, Darlene had what they called “Heavenly Honey,” that so many tasted and loved.

Conrad’s Concrete was well known in the area as quality concrete driveways and Con would pour concrete in the mornings and work as a machinist in the evenings for over forty years.  He felt he was blessed to have worked and retired from Akron Brass. He and Darlene sold plants from their greenhouse to the Manchester area for years while raising their three children.

At the Apostolic Church, he sang in the choir, helped pour concrete, prayed with souls, and taught many Bible Studies along with End Time Prophecy as a faithful member in God’s Kingdom. His daily focus was for his family and souls to be saved and in his words, “rapture with the Bride of Christ off this planet Earth.”  His favorite Bible verses are Acts 2:38 and Ezekiel chapters 38, 39. Even in his body’s weakness towards the nearing of passing, every night on the hour, he would begin to pray to the good Lord and thank God for his kindness and mercy and pray for his family and friends to be strong and gain salvation. He left this life to step into arms of his Lord, as he would pray in Jesus’ name, in Yeshua’s name, amen.  

The Memorial Service will be held Saturday, July 13, 2024 at 2:00 p.m., with a visitation one hour prior at the Apostolic Church, 1717 Turkeyfoot Lake Road, Barberton, Ohio.
