Rupert has always been a loyal and trusted friend. He was always there when needed.
Although he lived a full and interesting life, I know that he will be missed by family and the very many friends he earned over the years.

My condolences to the entire Hawk family, I know how important was to each and every one of you. He was a man of true character and leader amongst many. He will be missed by all. Sorry that I was not a the funeral as I have been in Clearwater for the past week.
Rupert was family. We will always remember his sense of humor, intelligence, values, kindness, and unfailing dedication to the medical business.
Carol and family, we are so sorry for the loss of Rupert. It was a blessing every day to know him and work with him. He was an amazing man who could always put on smile on your face and as genuine of a person that you would ever meet. His customers, friends, and family always knew how much he cared about each one because he took the time to get to know you. Rupert will definitely be missed, especially by everyone at IMCO.
Bill, Ashleigh and the IMCO Family
Dear Carol and family,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Rupert was such a kind-hearted man. He was always quick to encourage us and share any insights or successes he had had with the sole purpose of helping us do our jobs better. His passing will leave a hole in the IMCO family for a very long time.
Much love and prayers for God's peace,
David and Tracy Stevens
We are saddened by the passing of Rupert. For those many who bowled with him remember him as a very good bowler and a very nice person. From the many bowlers he knew and bowled with, we send our deepest sympathies to the family.
I am so sorry for your loss. Rupert was a very caring and kind person. He always made it a point to speak to everyone on the exhibit floor. I know God got another angel.
To the Family of Rupert-
I had the pleasure of getting to know Rupert as an IMCO Board Member. Although I only knew him a few years, I was quick to see how respected he was by many for his strong medical industry knowledge and his loving passion for the industry. Rupert was very willing to help others look at items and come up with solutions to help make a difference....making a difference is what Rupert was all about. He was kind, gentle, smart and giving.
Blessings to all that had known Rupert and how he touched their lives in such a positive way. May Rupert continue to be the guiding light to follow.
With Deepest Sympathy,
Greta Gatzke-Delabbio RN, BSN

GOD Bless Rupert,I love you friend,thanks for the memories. Mike Carver

With our deepest sympathy,
Dear Carol and Family,
I am saddened to hear of Rupert's passing although I know he is not suffering and in a better place. For the past number of years I have had the opportunity of serving with Rupert on a committee with-in Imco and my life has been greatly blessed by his service and his willingness to help all of us. Carol, he talked of you and his love for you and your family. May our Heavenly Father's blessings of peace and comfort be upon you and your family at this time of sorrow and loss
Carol, Rupert Jr. Jenny and Eric deepest regrets on Rupert's passing. He befriended us when we moved to town, and knew virtually nobody. We fondly remember he and Carol inviting us to a Florida State football game against our Louisiana Tech University Bulldogs (we were thrashed). We value our memories of him as a great supporter of Deland High School, a husband and father. The world is a better place because of what he gave to us all. Love The Michaels
Carol and family, what an honor it was to get to know and work with Rupert through the years. An outstanding man...absolutely the most caring and likeable one could ever find. He will truly be missed.
My sincere condolences to the family. Losing a loved one is never easy. Death was never a part of God's original purpose for mankind. May you take comfort in God's future promise to bring an end, to all suffering and death on earth. Revelation 21:3, 4 and Isaiah 65; 21, 22.
