James B. Rupert

July 30, 1943 – January 14, 2023


James B. Rupert passed away peacefully on January 14, 2023 at age 79, surrounded by his family. He was born July 30, 1943 in Pittsburgh, PA to James B. Rupert and Rosina Sirianni Rupert.


He was a loving husband to Nancy P. Rupert and father to Molly R. Greene (Jason) and Katheryn Rupert. Proud grandfather (Papa) to Asher Greene. He is also survived by his brother Anthony Rupert (Suzanne) as well as many nieces and nephews. His dear sister, Marjorie Roos, passed away shortly after Jim on January 27, 2023.


Jim was skilled in many areas, enjoying success in several different careers over the course of his life. He was devoted to the ones he loved and valued family above all else. He loved bread baking and wood working, often surprising those around him with gifts of baked goods or wood carvings. Jim loved to entertain and never passed up the opportunity to crack a joke. His laugh and quick wit will be missed greatly by those close to him.


A memorial will be held for Jim at Orchard Hill Church, 2551 Brandt School Rd. Wexford, PA 15090, on March 4th. The family will greet guests at 10am followed by the service at 11 and a reception immediately following. In lieu of flowers, a memorial donation may be made to Orchard Hill Church.

    In our “misspent” youth,. Jim was my closest, dearest friend who was one of the very few individuals who guided and counseled me during those young adult years. Were it not for him, I seriously doubt that I would have survived that period. He was instrumental in the meeting of my dearest wife, now of 53 years. He was the brother I never had and now that he is gone, so is a good part of me. Rest in peace JB; I love you man.

    I was Uncle Jim’s oldest nephew. From my earliest memory I always thought he was just the coolest guy ever. Twice a year we would come in from out of town to visit my grandparents at the house he grew up in. He come by several times during those weeks and was always making us all laugh–he was fun to be around!

    As was said in his obit he was a very generous and giving person. When I was in college in Boston he was in town briefly for business. He made a point of getting in touch and took me to the Top of the Hub restaurant, which sat at the top of the 52 story Prudential Building. I still remember how great that steak was! It was not something he had to do, but that’s who he was. I will always remember him fondly.

    Rest in peace Uncle Jim.
