O : Richard C Ripple M.D. , 1970
( Dr Ripple was the President of the Sacramento Society for Medical Improvement, circa 1960)
*JD Sparks says this was not a Sparks design. However, Builder Pete Minarick and his daughter, Cherry, identify it as a Sparks design. It was not one of their favorites ("small, weird brick"), and it was probably torn down due to lack of maintenance.
