Roumain John Ruppert, son of Frank and Bertha (Rubel) Ruppert, was born on November 28, 1934 in Mallard, Iowa. He graduated in 1953 from Mallard High School and began his career farming. On September 9, 1959 he was united in marriage to Lavonne Kollasch at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Whittemore. To this union, three sons and two daughters were born.

He served on the Fair Board, the Cattlemen’s Association, and as a 4-H leader and volunteer. In his free time, there was nothing he enjoyed more than attending his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting events and concerts with Lavonne. Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 56 years, Lavonne, and his five children Larry (Linda) Ruppert of Mallard; Juliann (Bert) Naig of Cylinder; Eugene (Sue) Ruppert of Mallard; Carla (Mark) Mueller of Broomfield, Colorado; and Darrell (Michele) Ruppert of Mallard.
