He was Scott County Road foreman for six years. He was known far and wide for his "fiddling" and took part in many "old time fiddling contests." His family consists of his wife, Marcene and two sons, Glenn and Joseph. He has two brothers, Lewis of Waldron and Bethel of Mansfield; two sisters, Mrs. Josie Baker of Hartford and Mrs. Nellie Drewey, deceased. Mr. Rupe and family wishes to express their thanks for the kindness of friends, cards and visits during his long illness.
