I was a Ripon High graduate in 1978. Coach Abeyta was a very strict, and very out spoken man. I am grateful I had Coach Abeyta not only as a P.E. coach, but also as someone who taught me how to respect people, as well as teaching me some discipline. I still think about Coach ocassionally after all of these years since high school. My condolences go out to the family. Goodbye Coach, I will never forget you.
