“But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” 2 Corinthians 4:7
Our dear brother, Daniel Ruppeiner, age 68, passed away on Thursday, November 30, after many years of battling injuries that he sustained in a car accident.
After Dan graduated from high school, he moved to Switzerland to study the art of food service. He later returned to Dallas where he earned a Theology degree from Christ for the Nations Institute. He was a devout Christian and had a heart for the lost. He later became a small business owner, with an emphasis on remodeling homes and businesses.
In his later years he enjoyed family gatherings, going on long daily walks, and reading the
newspaper. His passion was typing letters on his word processor, copying interesting articles that he found to share with us. He had a great sense of humor and loved to engage in rousing debates. Dan remained close to his family, who loved and cared for him deeply.
He is survived by his brother, Professor George Ruppeiner and his wife Professor Malena Carrasco, as well as by his two sisters, Marianne and her husband Dwight Hembree, and Susi and her husband Norman Lebourgeois. Dan also leaves behind his two children, daughter Rachel and her husband Gordie Bush, and son Dante Saelios.
There will be a celebration of life service at Resthaven Funeral Home at 11817 Jefferson Hwy in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Saturday, December 16, 2023, at 1pm. A reception will immediately follow the service.
