Ian Dimitri Ruperti Obituary, Death – I feel a weight in my chest as I share this depressing post with you today. The courageous fight against cancer that my father, Ian Dimitri Ruperti, fought for so long came to an end yesterday, and all of us are inconsolable over the loss. When I look back to how he cheerily greeted my children and me at the airport a little over a month ago, it blows my mind and breaks my heart all at the same time. It is mind-boggling how he greeted us, and it broke my heart that he didn’t see us again.
During that period, we took part in activities such as spending time together in the garden, having a barbeque, having a campfire, and playing our final round of golf together. The image that is attached, which was shot by my mother on July 21 at The Ivy restaurant in Exeter, and the picture that was taken in our yard somewhere around three weeks ago both depict an unforgettable moment that is dear to our family’s hearts. Because of everything you’ve done, Daddy, I have an unfathomable amount of appreciation to express to you, and I want to start by saying that you were the very model of true kindness in every sense of the term.
Your legacy will live on in our memories, and we will always hold a special place in our hearts for you. The void that you’ve left in our lives feels as though it cannot be filled, and may the Lord bless you and keep you, Daddy. We will always love you with all of our hearts and souls. Because of our unending dependence on you to be here, we have gone completely insane. We find consolation in the knowledge that you are no longer suffering and are at rest in the presence of God. To My Loving Father, My prayer is that you will discover comfort in the peace that endures for all time.
