Councilmember Rip Dyal - District 3

For most of my life my zip code has been 32926. I am a Cocoa High School graduate, class of 1980, and proudly served in the u. S. Air Force as a security police officer for six years. I have been married to my wife, Marsha, for 38 years and we have a daughter, Rachel, who is a 4th generation graduate of Cocoa High School.

I am not afraid of hard work, having spent time working as a bricklayer, and owner of a auto recycling facility. I am a lifetime member of the VFW and also a member of the Moose Lodge, both organizations dedicated to community service.

Since 2005, I have volunteered for the City of Cocoa, serving as a VCOP, VCOP coordinator, and Chairman of the Board of Adjustment. I was honored to receive the City’s Volunteer of the year award in 2008, and the VCOP of the Year award in 2019, volunteering more than 1000 hours.

I love this city and its people and I am thankful you have selected me to serve you as your District 3 Councilman.
