RAY SIPPLE.
Among the wide awake and enterprising young business men of Hastings is Ray Sipple, member of the Sipple Brothers Motor Company. Adams county numbers him among her native sons, his birth having occurred in Holstein on the 4th of January, 1891. His parents are C. A. and Ella Sipple, who came to Nebraska in pioneer times and are still residents of this state. The father was engaged in the grain and livestock business at Norman, Holstein and Kenesaw.

After acquiring his education by attendance at the public schools through the period of his boyhood and early youth, Ray Sipple began work upon his father's cattle ranch in Boone county and while thus employed learned the value of industry, perseverance and determination. In March, 1914, he arrived in Hastings and in partnership with his brother Earl established the Sipple Brothers Motor Company. They handle the Ford cars for Adams county and also the Oldsmobile in five counties. They also conduct a repair business and deal in auto accessories. Both are active in the conduct and management of the business and in addition they employ five men. They occupy a room one hundred and twenty five by forty four feet in a two story brick building and have built up a business of large and gratifying proportions.

On the 8th of February, 1911, Mr. Sipple was united in marriage to Miss Cora Rice, a daughter of W. A. Rice. They attend the Methodist church and in the social circles of the city occupy an enviable position, having many warm friends in Hastings. Mr. Sipple belongs to the Commercial Club and his political allegiance is given to the republican party. He is interested in all that pertains to the welfare of the community and cooperates in many plans for the public good. He represents one of the old and honored pioneer families of the county and the work which was begun by his father in early days in behalf of the county's development is being carried on by the son.
