Harry Joseph “Joe” Rupp, 68, of Keokuk, formerly of Warsaw, passed away on Saturday, January 11,
2020, at Mississippi Valley Healthcare Center in Keokuk.

Episcopal Church in Warsaw and was a faithful member of Black Hawk Masonic Lodge #0238 in Hamilton

no one was a stranger.

Robert (LuAnn) Rupp of Hamilton; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
