1925 - 2021

Peacefully, on August 31, 2021, with his family by his side, Jack Rupert passed away at the Victoria Hospital, at the age of 96 and one-half years, after a short battle with pneumonia.
Surviving are his sons, Jeff and Gordon; daughter Diane; granddaughter Breanne; his brother John (Vancouver Island); and many nieces, nephews and friends.
He was predeceased by his parents, Jacob and Christine; sisters, Wilma, Ann and Margaret; and his ex-wife and great friend Nadia.
Jack had one job in his life working for CP Rail starting in 1945. He worked there for 43 years retiring as a locomotive engineer in 1988.
Jack loved watching his sports, football, baseball, golf, tennis but his favourite was hockey. He was involved in coaching, managing and volunteering in the game of hockey at the "AAA" level and made numerous great friends from the game of hockey. They can vouch he was the loudest fan in the stands.
Thank you, Pastor Lynne, for visiting Dad for prayer and preparation. You livened him up every time you visited him.
Thank you to the doctors, nurses and kind staff at the Victoria Hospital for taking such good care of our Dad and making him comfortable.
Pallbearers will be Jeff Rupert, Gordon Ruppenthal, Albert Remple, Dennis Patkau, Rob Baxter and Dan Dobinsky.
Honorary pallbearers will be Diane Rupert, Breanne Rupert, Nu Thi, Wayne Craig and Shannon Trimble.
Flowers gratefully accepted and can be sent directly to Glen Eden Funeral Home.
A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. at Glen Eden Funeral Home and Cemetery, 4477 Main Street, West St. Paul.

  • Our thoughts and prayers are with the Rupert family, we are so sorry for your loss. Barb and I have many fond memories of Uncle Jack. He was Barb’s godfather. He had a great sense of humour and always made us laugh and put a smile on our faces. Barb also has many special memories of him from her younger days and remembers his crow call. He always was a nice person to be around and share time with and always made you feel good. He will be missed but never forgotten. Rest In Peace Uncle Jack. 🙏 ❤️ Barb Siebert Dan Sulipa - Posted by: dan sulipa (Spouse of Jack’s niece Barb) on: Sep 06, 2021
