Joe loved going to farm sales. He lived in Portland, OR for about 30 years. He worked for the boiler makers, in construction work and on the Hells Canyon Dam. Joe loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, backpacking in the Seven Devils Mountains with his Dad.

Joe had accepted the Lord as his personal savior, was always making jokes, and had a great sense of humor. He was a good dad, brother, and son.

He leaves behind one daughter Colleen Kness of Cedarville, CA; one son Bill Rupp of Nampa; his mother Esther Rupp, sister Marlene Barklow and brother-in-law Wallace of Ontario; brother Merlin Rupp and sister-in-law Faith of Burns, OR; and many nieces and nephews. His dad Albert Rupp and son Duke Rupp preceded him in death.

He will be missed by many. We love you Joe! – Your Family
