Son of Frederick W. Ruppert and Susan B. Gick Ruppert. Beloved brother of Frederick Jr., Frank, John and Dorothy (Mrs. Charles Petty) Ruppert. Co-Owner of the former Ruppert Brothers Trucking Co. in Astoria, Queens, New York City. Grandson of Franz Ruppert and Sophia Gick Ruppert and half-nephew of beer baron Jacob Ruppert, Sr. (1842-1915). Veteran of World War II serving as Private in Company A of the 245 Coast Artillery. Former resident of East Setauket, New York and was living in Jamaica, Queens County, New York City when he fell ill and passed away at the Kings Bridge Veterans Administration Hospital (now the James J. Peters V.A. Medical Center on Kings Bridge Boulevard in the Bronx).

His former wife, Anne Matthes Ruppert, daughter of John and Benedicta Mathes, died eight years earlier and who reposes next to him. He had no children.

All without issue, John Ruppert and his siblings were the last surviving descendants of the second family of notable New York German beer brewer, Franz Ruppert and his wife Sophia Gick Ruppert. He and his siblings are the half-first cousins, thrice removed, of this writer.
