Gregory William Ruppert
June 30, 1962 - November 02, 2017
Gregory William Ruppert, age 55, died Thursday, November 02, 2017 in Livermore, California in his home due to complications from a long illness. Greg was born in Princeton, New Jersey on June 30th, 1962 and was raised in Santa Cruz, California. He graduated from Soquel High School class of 1980. Then attended and graduated San Jose State University where he earned a BS degree in Industrial Engineering in 1985.
Later that same year, he married his wife Denise McCauley Ruppert. After relocating to Livermore, CA in 1990, they were blessed with three children together, Christina, Rebecca and Jacob Ruppert. Greg dedicated his working career as founder and President of Quail Electronics, Northern California electronics company. Greg was well loved for his humor, compassionate heart, infectious personality and infinite generosity of spirit. He loved music, history, his pug – Van, helping others, cooking, reading, and spending time with his family and friends. Survived by his wife of 32 years, along with their three children and grandson, Levi Ruppert. His parents Albert and Diane Ruppert, siblings Michael (Julie) and Katie (Dave) Ruppert. As well as many other close family and friends who loved him immensely. He will be deeply missed by all.
Greg was deeply devoted to his Catholic faith his entire adult life. He was in the process of writing a Christian book for younger age children. The family would like to share an excerpt from his personal mission statement written earlier this year –
"I am anxious to discern what mission(s) God has for me, but I will continually pray and keep my mind, ears, heart, and soul open waiting for his word. While I wait for his word, I will continue to pray, receive the sacraments of reconciliation, and the Eucharist, spend time before the blessed sacrament, say my rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy daily, and consume his word in any manner that I can."
God Bless you Greg with eternal peace in Heaven.
