The Riopel Family

Yves Riopel and his wife Ruth started development of Edgewater homes in 1988. Yves is a graduate of UW Madison, WI.  He has spent many years in the manufactured housing industry, and is pretty much known as a jack of all trades, his wife Ruth is a retired nurse and considers herself the chief putzer. They both love to bike and travel and are in never ending projects wherever they go. They share a monstrous garden and process hundreds of jars of organic product a year!  But there is more….

Owners of Edgewater Homes

The Riopel Family, owners of Edgewater homes.

They have 2 girls. Amber lives in Minneapolis and works for Target Corporation as a Senior director of store design.  Her husband, Aaron is the Director of real estate development for Life Time Fitness. They have what the owners consider to be the latest and greatest joy in the world….yep you guessed it, grandchildren!!!! And, as if that wasn’t enough, their youngest daughter Rachael, and her husband John now have a daughter, this pretty much sends these old folks over the roof! They are Hospitalists and live in Missoula MT.  Gathering our tribe is constantly on the “must do” list for everyone.
