Away from work, he enjoyed fishing with his buddies, truck pulling and had a passion for racing, cars, trucks or anything automotive.  (As long as it was a Dodge). In retirement, he enjoyed caring for his yard/gardening, going to car shows and truck pulls and spending time with his family and friends.

His memory will be forever held in the hearts of his surviving family: his wife Connie; his sons, Brian (Carol) Tupy, Shawn Tupy, and step-daughter, Annette White; granddaughters, Erin and Taylor Tupy, and step-granddaughter, Anna Kochevar; siblings, Larry (Lorray) Tupy, Tom (Terri) Tupy, Kathy (Henry) Hentges, Marianne (Jim) Voracek, and Kenny (Mary) Tupy; former spouse, June Tupy; and many nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.
