Rupert Boeselt age 92 born March 7 1921 - died June 13 2013
Rupert Boeselt won the Texas State Champion four times, in 1965, 1987, 2004, and 2005. It made the Forth Worth newspapers in 1965 which was quite an upset since Professor H. L. Cravens, Jr. of Brownwood, Texas had dominated the Texas State Championship for years. I have a little more about this in the 2012 Texas notes. Rupert played in the Nationals when held in Texas, like 1956 and 1980 which know about.
Rupert Boeselt Obituary from Cook-Gerngross-Green-Patterson Funeral Home Link
(March 7, 1921 - June 13, 2013)
His compassion for his family was boundless. For many years he visited one or more of his sisters in the nursing home to make their lives as pleasant as possible. Though his life was simple and filled with family responsibilities, Rupert often told us he considered himself the luckiest of men. He loved his life in Westphalia and was a devoted member of the Church of the Visitation. He served as a Eucharistic Minister for many years and received the Lumen Gentium award from the bishop for his life-Long service to his parish Rupert was respected by all who knew him for his selfless nature and humility. Rupert was also predeceased by one niece, Barbara Talley and is survived by nine nieces and nephews; Joan Scott, Kenneth Bernsen, Elizabeth Wezensky, Gregory Boeselt, David Fiedler, Margaret Surratt, Bernard Boeselt, Patricia Perkins, and Karen Troendle. They and their families will always be grateful for all Rupert brought to our lives. He is also survived by Nemo, his faithful dog and constant companion of the last few years. The family appreciates the care he received at Temple Living Center during his final days. We are grateful to Greneta Ordner who brought him food and Dennis Hoelscher who helped him maintain his yard and home and for their companionship and to other friends in Westphalia who helped him. We will forever be indebted to Doris Wright whose constant care the last several years made it possible for Rupert to remain in his home with Nemo. Words are inadequate to express the depth of gratitude to her. Visitation was held from 6:30 to 7:30 and rosary was recited at the Cook-Gerngross-Green-Patterson Funeral Home in Rosebud on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and the funeral was held at the Church of the Visitation in Westphalia on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Rev. Walter Dhanwar officiating. Burial was in St. Mary’s Cemetery.
