Raymond “Ray” Joseph Rupertus, Sr., 68, of Newfield, New Jersey, passed away on Sunday, March 14, 2021. Ray was born on April 25, 1952 to Edward and Hildred Rupertus. He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Virginia Rupertus; his children Raymond Rupertus, Jr, John Rupertus (Lisa), Jenna Volosin (Jason), and Elizabeth Alper (Steven); his grandchildren Austin, Alexander, Hunter, Jace, Logan and Caitlyn; siblings Edward Rupertus Jr., Richard Rupertus, Dolly McDade. Patricia White, Leonard Rupertus, Dee Brandhorst, Thad Rupertus, Judy Savarese, Robert Rupertus, and Terry Gibbs.
Ray was known for his love of the ocean, and spent many summer days fishing, boating, or smoking a cigar by the water. He was a family man, a loving husband and father, but his favorite title was “PopPop.” Ray loved doing various odd jobs around the house, with his best furry friend Dory by his side. He was known for being a generous man, and would have given the shirt off of his back to anyone who needed it. He lit up a room with his smile, and made everyone laugh with a quick joke or favorite movie quote. He is not gone, he has just gone fishing.
Private services will be held by the family. A Celebration of Life will follow (date to be determined). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ray’s name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a charity near and dear to his heart. The Rupertus family is in the care of the Aloia Funeral Home, 180 Harrison Avenue, Garfield, NJ (973-340-7077). Condolences visit aloiafuneral.com

He was the fastest runner. He would beat everyone at the July 4th races back in a day! He was a very nice person and Larry can remember when he introduced Ginny to everyone. He was so happy. God bless the family and continue to live in his footsteps of kindness. Karen and Larry Brandley

I spent many of my childhood days at the Rupertus household. Ray and John were my best friends growing up. Mr. Rupertus was always happy to take us where we wanted to go. He had a great sense of humor, treated everyone like they were the most important person, and always brought a smile to everyone's face. My thoughts are with his family in this trying time. He will be sorely missed.

A memory he and I shared when we were young has always stuck with me. When I was probably around 9 I woke up early Easter morning and he can down the stairs. We were the only 2 awake so he told me to go get dressed for church. We both put on our Easter best and he walked me to St. Lawrence Church for Mass. For some reason that day he made it special for me that my big brother wanted to spend time with me. Years later I started to tell him that memory and he stopped me to say “ the day we went to Easter Mass together “ . I realized then that he kept that memory also. He will always be in my heart! But I realize he had to go fishing!!
